The Division 2 Mike-01 error code just won’t go away. If you can’t get on to The Division 2 servers, or if the game is undergoing maintenance, you’d best believe this pesky little boy Mike-01 is going to pop up to ruin your day. In this guide we’ll cover what to do if you see the Mike-01 error code and a gutwrenching “The Division 2 services are not available at this time. Please try again later” message, as well as what causes the Mike-01 error code and if there’s a Mike-01 fix on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
What is causing The Division 2 Mike-01 error code?
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. When trying to join a The Division 2 lobby, you’re stopped in your tracks by a Mike-01 error that reads “The Division 2 services are not available at this time. Please try again later.”
The Mike-01 error code, then, is explicitly tied to The Division 2 servers being down, or some other connectivity issue. As The Division’s official account says, the code “mostly appears during maintenance.”
How to fix The Division 2 Mike-01 error code
If you’re reading this and the full game has gone live, then it’s probably a case of maintenance. Check The Division official Twitter account, or Ubisoft Support on Twitter for more information on whether work is being done and, crucially, when you can be back playing. Outside that, there’s not a whole lot you can do but wait.
Finally, another thing you might wish to do is perform a hard reset of your console on PS4 or Xbox One. On PS4 you can do so by pressing down the power button for 30 seconds until you hear two beeps, then unplugging your system entirely for a further minute. On Xbox One, the method is similar: hold down the Xbox button on your console until the Xbox One shuts off. Unplug both the console’s power outlet and/or the power brick, and leave it for two minutes before starting the console back up again. That should shake off the cobwebs, and then some.
