Destiny 2 Launches, but Some Players are Stuck in Server Queues - Bungie Issues Advice

As the year’s biggest release so far goes live across the world, players are having to wait longer than they’d like. Let's hope the wait isn't Titan-ic.

Destiny 2 is out, with the game servers live and digital purchases unlocked. With everyone playing, though, some players are finding themselves stuck in a queue to start the game.

While high user levels for the launch of high profile games is known to cause problems for online focused releases (we’re looking at you, The Division), the wait will be painful for fans who planned to kick off their Destiny 2 adventure on the stroke of midnight in their region.

Bungie is aware of the issue and tweeted a link to its help page:

"During periods of high traffic, players may encounter the Destiny server login queue. Destiny 1 and Destiny 2 feature separate queues. Destiny server queues regulate player population to provide stable conditions for Destiny gameplay."

On the studio’s website it added the following info:

  • If a player loses connection or is removed from the queue, their placement will not be retained
  • If a player reaches the front of this queue and is unable to connect to Destiny servers, they will have to re-enter the queue to try again
  • Queue times may vary, depending on server traffic and concurrent population

While unfortunate for those affected, the server queue issue doesn’t seem to be a massively widespread issue. USGamer staff have managed to log in and play Destiny 2 without issues this morning.
