Every so often, Destiny 2 servers go down in order to perform scheduled maintenance or implement updates into the game. Here’s everything you need to know to stay on top of these updates.

Destiny 2 is a live-service game, with new content and in-game events arriving at a fairly regular cadence (or at least up until Witch Queen was delayed to 2022). But, with that slew of new content comes the need for, you guessed it, server maintenance and downtime.

Lucky for you, we’ve simplified the process of finding out the Destiny 2 server status as well as when, why, and for how long Destiny will be offline.

Destiny 2 Server Status

Servers are back up!

Destiny 2’s servers went down at 8:45 AM PST/ 4:45 PM GMT to begin server maintenance. That’s because the Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack went live, alongside a huge balance patch.

According to Bungie’s support page, players will be removed from activities at that time, before the patch with Update 3.4.0 begins rolling out at 9 AM PST / 5 PM GMT.

Once players have downloaded the patch, you can hop in again.

Background maintenance is expected to conclude by 10 AM PST / 6 PM GMT.

Dexerto will continue to update this page in the event of any new server issues or downtime.
