More often than not, Destiny 2 servers go down for maintenance for various reasons. It could be from a glitch that’s causing some server issues, for a big update, or even just a small patch. Either way, as part of the Bungie community, it’s something we’ve learned to live with, even if we don’t enjoy it. Though, knowing when the servers are down is a great thing. Sometimes there are just too many players trying to log in at once and you should keep trying, and other times, you just have to wait it out for the maintenance to be complete.
What Are Destiny 2 Servers Doing? Are They Down?
On January 9th, 2024, Destiny 2 servers went down for the 126.96.36.199. update. Though this server shutdown is for every platform, the update shouldn’t be too big and should be quite easy to download quickly. The Destiny 2 update 188.8.131.52. will be finished by the time the weekly reset happens. A great way to stay informed is to follow @BungieHelp on Twitter/X.
While the update should have been done at 12 pm EST, Bungie tweeted that they were bringing down the servers early to prepare for the big update.
We’re positive that this downtime in particular will result in some changes we’ve all been waiting for. Bungie will do its best to ensure that the game servers are back up and running in the best time possible. However, while there is a two-hour expected maintenance time, you can always expect it to be just a bit longer.
Loads of players are excited to get in-game and discover all the new and interesting events that they’ll be able to partake in with the new event, as well as this new week of the Season of the Wish, and we’d all hate to be left waiting for much longer. However, as problems arise, they will be taken care of by Bungie, and updates will be posted here accordingly. We have our fingers crossed and hope that this update is quick and painless and we can all get started on the usual activities as soon as possible.
