Destiny 2 Servers Are Back Online After Longer Than Expected Maintenance

Destiny 2 Servers Are Back Online After Longer Than Expected Maintenance

Sorry if you lost precious hours to grind before tomorrow's big Destiny 2 Raid.

After a longer than anticipated delay, Destiny 2 servers are back online according to Bungie's Twitter account.

Bungie announced that Destiny 2 would go offline for maintenance today for four hours starting at 7am PT/10am ET. Originally, the scheduled timeframe was for servers to go offline for four hours, or until 11am PT/2p, ET.

Unfortunately, the downtime lasted a bit longer than intended, first delayed an hour, before finally going live three hours after the initial maintenance time estimate at 2pm PT/5pm ET. A 4.7GB patch also went live for download in the meantime.

Destiny 2 servers are running now, though Bungie's support account expects some lines in the loading queue. This delay has no doubt affected some players expecting to grind out Power Levels to reach the 260-280 range in time the first Destiny 2 raid tomorrow. Unfortunately, the delayed maintenance downtime means that some players' planned grinds have been cut short, though I have no doubt that they'll try and make up for it if able to.
