Wondering why you can’t connect to Destiny 2? In this guide, we’ll explain whether or not Destiny 2 is down, and how to check Destiny 2 server status so you know when you can continue to grind out that loot.
Is Destiny 2 Down?
At the time of writing on Sept. 22, 2022, Destiny 2 is currently down as the server’s have been brought offline for expected maintenance.
According to the official Bungie server maintenance schedule, players will not be able to log back in until 10 am PT, when Hotfix 126.96.36.199 will be available. At this point, players may be placed in a queue and it could take up to an hour until the servers are back up to capacity.
We’ll update this section whenever there’s an unexpected Destiny 2 server outage.
How to Check Destiny 2 Server Status
The best and quickest way to see if Destiny 2 is down is to visit the official Destiny 2 Status page. Even if the game is down, the status page will be updated frequently to keep users up to date on what is going on.
If something is wrong, for example, if you were visiting the page on March 29, you’d see some messages that look like this.
You can check back whenever you want or need to see what the latest update is from the development team working on getting the servers back online.
It’s worth noting that Bungie will also note on this page when the servers are going off for scheduled downtime. If you don’t see anything on the server status page for Destiny 2 but are still having issues, you might want to check your own internet connection, as the connectivity issue might be on your end.
Finally, you can always check the Bungie Help Twitter account to see if Bungie is aware of an immediate issue with the servers, such as an error code affecting a group of players.
That’s everything you need to know on whether Destiny 2 is down right now, and how to check server status. For more on the game, be sure to head over to our Witch Queen wiki or see more of our coverage on the game below.
