Destiny 2 Will Spend Another 6 Hours Offline Today, From 2-8PM In The UK

Monday Maintenance

The early days of a massive online game such as Destiny 2 are fraught with technical challenges that need to be overcome quickly and as smoothly as possible. Thankfully, Destiny 2 has managed to have a relatively smooth a trouble free first few weeks, but we have seen regular bouts of server maintenance as Bungie prepare to push out new features and shore up their systems for major new events.

Destiny 2 will be offline between 2PM and 8PM UK time today, after which you’ll have to download update 1.0.3 in order to log in and play some more. If you’re already online at 2PM, you’ll be able to keep on playing, but all players will be ejected at 3PM.

Chances are that this downtime will primarily focus on laying the foundations for the Faction Rally event that will be taking place once the weekly reset ticks over on Tuesday morning.

    I appreciate server maintenance is a necessity for an online game, especially an evolving one. Having said that, I think this is being a little ridiculous. 6 hours every week since release just seems way too much.

    It’s not even like it’s a new franchise, then it’d be more understandable. I’m pretty sure everything is already configured pretty damn well considering how similar all the systems are to the first game.

    It doesn’t affect me too much personally as 8pm is the earliest I’ll be able to get on today anyway, it just seems a little excessive.

      Agree, I’m happy they’re getting s#** right this time game wise but 6hrs weekly is not something they should get away with.

    I’m not a Destiny player so it doesn’t affect me, but am I right in thinking this seems to be a regular occurrence just before weekly events? If so, thats pretty poor.

    It’s Bungie’s latest way to extend the game length, weekly maintenance.
