The Destiny 2 servers experience issues often, and when this happens, you will be unable to get into the game. You will know there’s a problem when you attempt to jump into the game’s menu and you’re waiting to pick the Guardian you want to play, but it prevents you from getting that far. There are a handful of reasons for this. Here’s what you need to know about Destiny 2’s server status and if Destiny 2 itself is down or if it’s on your side.
Is Destiny 2 down? What’s happening to the servers?
Destiny 2 servers are currently down, as the team at Bungie is investigating missing Triumphs, Seals, and Catalysts. There were no details of what exactly is missing from the servers, but the expectation is that the investigation will take some time. It is not expected to resolve tonight.
The investigation is estimated to end at 3 to 4 AM PT on January 25. At that time, a fix should be in place to restore the missing content. It’s important to note that this is only an estimate; the investigation and solution implementation could take longer than initially planned.
Unlike previous server statuses, you are unlikely to be the only player experiencing this issue. Bungie has noted that Destiny 2 will remain offline while the missing content is being investigated. You will not be able to access the game at all and must wait until the fix has been deployed.
Stay tuned to the Bungie Help Twitter page and follow them to get the most recent news about the server update. Alternatively, you can check the DownDetector for Destiny 2 or follow the Bungie help page to see if there are any changes to the status of the situation.
Bungie is not likely to keep these servers down longer than it needs to, but it’s not known if the estimate is the exact time the servers will come back online. Keep following the news updates to see if the servers could come back on earlier than anticipated, or whether you will need to wait longer.
