How long will Destiny 2 be down?

Learn how long Destiny 2 will be down and offline while maintenance continues as Bungie tinkers in the background, implementing new and exciting things.


Destiny 2 is currently undergoing a major update, which means the servers are currently down. Any addicted Guardian (like myself) will likely want to know how long will Destiny 2 be down – a reasonable question. Thankfully, Bungie has provided players with a clear timeline of events, so you know when the maintenance will be over and Destiny 2 will be back online.

How long will Destiny 2 be down?

Those looking to answer the question, "How long will Destiny 2 be down," don't have to go far to find the answer. Thankfully, Bungie is extremely transparent with its messaging surrounding server maintenance and downtime. At the launch of new Seasons, Bungie often outlines an hour-by-hour summary of what players can expect. Bungie even goes so far as to Tweet out helpful information via the Bungie Help Twitter account:

For the launch of Destiny 2 Lightfall, players will be unable to log into Destiny 2 from February 27 at 8:00 a.m. PT / 11:00 a.m. ET. The next time players can log in will be February 28 at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET. This is a 25 hour window where Destiny 2 servers will be unavailable due to a maintenance schedule. During this time, players should ensure that they download the Lightfall update. While players will eventually be able to log in, the maintenance is not due to conclude until 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET, so expect server instability until then.
