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 know about the Destiny 2 server status.

Destiny 2 is a live-service game, with new content and in-game events arriving at a fairly regular cadence, and February 22 saw the mother of all content drops — the Witch Queen expansion.

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 the game will be offline.
