Word out of of Bungie today is that they’ll be taking Destiny offline later this week to begin formal preparations for some of the content updates they plan to roll out later this year. According to them, this is a planned outage and they’re hoping to have it all wrapped up and service back online in about four hours. Here’s the official time frame they gave on their blog:
The maintenance window begins around 8AM Pacific.
We’ll be done by (or shortly after) Noon, if all goes according to plan.
I’m terrible with time zones but I’m pretty sure that puts the offline window at 4-8pm in the UK. Interesting they chose that time to do maintenance rather than a little earlier in the day but at least it occurs on a Thursday rather than Friday. Hopefully very few of you will be affected by this outage, and if you want to know a little more about what they’re preparing for, check out our post from yesterday regarding the details they’ve released so far.
