UPDATE: Bungie have not said anything about this being fixed but the game seems to be working now.
Original story below…
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but it seems like a launch for Destiny 2 is not going smoothly. Earlier this evening the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game went live but you really had to mess around to get the PS5 version. Those who did manage to get everything installed happily logged on.. and then got kicked off.
The servers seem to be having problems and many people are reporting the Weasel error code, which is related to network issues. The issue is occurring on both PlayStation and Xbox and both Reddit and Twitter are full of people reporting the error code.
“We are currently investigating various error codes related to connection issues. These issues may be causing Destiny 2 characters to not appear through the API. Stay tuned for updates,” tweeted Bungie.
That’s not the only issue, “Due to a recent fix for PS4 friends lists, PS4 players will be unable to view their online friends in their Roster until December 14th when the issue will be resolved in a hotfix,” add Bungie, “As a workaround, players can use their PS4 Friends List from their PS4 home screen or Quick Menu.”
There also seems to be a fun bug with the trophies as spotted by TSA Destiny Clan member Posem who can claim the world record for the fastest PS5 Platinum trophy ever. As you can see from the picture below he got it by starting the game and earned it in less than five seconds.
If you are having trouble getting hold of the PlayStation 5 version of the game then you’re not alone, Sony’s awful store system has got a lot of people confused. Click this link for full details on how to get the upgrade.
We will keep an eye on the servers and let you know when things are back online.
