You Have Lost Connection to the Destiny 2 Servers
Previously, this error was a problem on Bungie's end. The team took to Twitter to inform players that an investigation was ongoing as the team sought to solve some connection lost issues. You can read the tweet below. However, at the start of a new season, there's a chance that there will be some server instability which could result in players losing connection. Players may even encounter the "Destiny 2 is temporarily at capacity" error.

The best thing you can do at this point is wait a few minutes and try again. That’s the most painless action you can take and, seeing as how the problem isn’t likely on your end, there’s no point in worrying further. If, however, you really want to go through some troubleshooting, the best place to do this is the Bungie Help site. You could also consider rebooting your console or PC, and perhaps your modem and router, although we can’t stress enough that this likely isn’t your issue.
