For those with nvidia GPU's, a new driver (496.49) is out that claims to have fixed issues with Division 2:
From the release notes:
[Tom Clancy’s The Division 2]: Flickering and visual corruption may appear after extended gameplay. 
I haven't tried them as my setup works fine, but others might find them useful.

@an0n0p That's because the crashing is a separate issue and is down to Massive to fix not Nvidia. I liaised with Nvidia to get the fix for the graphical artefacts. The crashes are not caused by them. If you suffer from crashes and want to expedite a fix then it's best posting it in #player support as that is the best way to letting the developers know.

@suspiciouspixel I am pretty certain that the devs know.
But I fear that fixing it probably means separate codebases for PC and consoles (very expensive) or breaking the game on older consoles. It is a very difficult choice for a developer to make, so they probably chose to allow the crashing to continue as the lesser evil.
Been playing the GE this week with the new driver, and can confirm there's no artifacting on a RTX 2070 under Windows 10. Still getting the occasional crash, but that wasn't expected to change.
