Wonder about the Destiny 2 server status? If you can’t access your character or log on to Destiny 2, it’s possible Bungie’s servers are having a bit of downtime or have run into a problem. To stop yourself from troubleshooting your own network, you should first check the server status of the shooter. Currently scheduled maintenance times can be found below.
If you’re experiencing issues, you might wonder what’s going on with the Destiny 2 server status, or how long before the servers come back up. While there was planned 24-hour Destiny 2 server maintenance in advance of the Destiny 2 Lightfall launch, the free PC game‘s downtime concluded when the DLC launched on February 28.
And, while some players reported server throttling upon Lightfall’s initial launch, everything appears to be back in order as most people can now successfully log into the game. So, if you’re presently having trouble connecting, you may be having issues with your personal network setup. However, if you are experiencing a number of unusual disconnects or other problems you can’t seem to solve, you can always check out the Bungie forums, where fellow Guardians and Bungie staff will help you sort through your issues.
