Bungie pulls servers for Destiny and Destiny 2 offline to roll out important updates.
Destiny and Destiny 2 are currently down for maintenance. They actually went down at 7 am PDT /5 pm BST – around two hours ago, at the time of writing – and are expected to be unavailable for up to 24 hours.
Here are the full details of the Destiny/Destiny 2 maintenance window, from the Bungie website:
Destiny/Destiny 2 maintenance begins – 7 am PDT, 27 June 2019 (5 pm BST, 27 June 2019)
- Destiny and Destiny 2 will be brought offline for maintenance.
- This is to prepare for Cross Save in Destiny 2 later this fall.
- Bungie.net and Destiny Companion features will be unavailable on Web, Mobile and Third-Party apps.
Destiny/Destiny 2 maintenance ends – 7 pm PDT, 27 June 2019 (3 am BST, 28 June 2019)
- Destiny and Destiny 2 maintenance is expected to conclude.
- Bungie.net and Destiny Companion features will be re-enabled on Web, Mobile and Third-Party apps.
- Players who encounter issues should report them to the #Help forum.
Ostensibly, this maintenance window is to support the changes to cross save coming to Destiny 2 thus autumn. But also, given how difficult it is to get servers offline for maintenance – particularly for big service games like Destiny and Destiny 2 – we wouldn’t be surprised if Bungie had a stack of other updates and bits of housekeeping they want to complete, too.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
