Ubisoft  have turned on SSE 4.2 requirement in the Division 2 after a year of Phenom II CPU's being able to play.

in what is an attempt to stop cracked/hackers and the like playing and i understand this but as a paying customer who has played since Beta. I feel like they have rewarded them with a $3 price tag for their game and because my Phenom II CPU can still play this game i get what feels like a Perma Ban just because its easy. Not my fault AMD MADE A DAMN FINE CPU and here is the kicker  the division 2 has AMD splash screen and this is some of ubisoft responses to customers.

@TheDivisionGame
Thanks for coming back to us. What error message are you getting and do you still have the link you mentioned earlier? For the unsupported CPU situation we will not have a fix, as these older generations are not fit to play the game.
really not fit then explain 680+  hours of play on a Phemon II CPU
