Destiny 2 downtime and server maintenance schedule

Get your gaming schedule sorted by knowing the Destiny 2 server downtime and maintenance window in the lead up to Shadowkeep.


Destiny 2 is going to undergo a bit of server maintenance, which always means some downtime. This scheduled outage is to usher in Shadowkeep, the next major expansion for Bungie’s space-magic-infused title.

While the server maintenance is expected to last 24 hours, there’s a chance Destiny 2 could go back online sooner. Sometimes these updates go far smoother than a developer can predict which could result in Destiny 2 being available earlier in the morning. However, there’s also the chance something will go wrong, meaning the launch could be delayed.

Right now, there are only a few things players can do to prepare for the downtime. Keep your console or PC in a state of preparedness to download the update. Some may find that reseting will cause their systems to check Destiny 2 and locate the update. When the update is ready to download, get it done and then settle in.

When Destiny 2’s server maintenance window has ended, players will be able to log into Destiny 2. With a lot of players already, and more likely to be joining at the launch of a new expansion, there’s likely going to be an influx, so expect queues. Shacknews will be covering the release of the latest content drop extensively. To ensure you don’t miss out on the latest meta weapon guides and collectibles, check out the Destiny 2 guide page.
