Destiny 2 Servers Are Back Online After Another Currency-Stealing Bug
Crimson Days are go.
Update 2: Bungie says Destiny 2 is back online, fully three hours earlier than originally expected. The game has been rolled back to its state at 8:30 AM PT, before Hotfix 184.108.40.206 was released, which means that any in-game progress you between 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM has been undone, as have any Silver purchases.
Due to the rollback:— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) February 12, 2020
💠 Any progress or purchase made between 8:30-10:30 AM PST will need to be redone
💠 Silver spent during that time will be restored
💠 Platform store-purchased Silver bundles will not be affected by the rollback
💠 Fractaline will be returned to inventories https://t.co/Rq4SVfPNJX
Update 1: Bungie tweeted it's keeping Destiny 2 offline to rollback player accounts back to before it released its latest hotfix. And like last time, it sounds like that will take a while--Bungie estimates servers will be down until 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET (3 AM GMT / 2 PM AET on February 12) to apply the fix.
We have identified the issue causing loss of materials and currencies after Hotfix 220.127.116.11. All player accounts will be rolled back to the state they were in at 8:30 AM PST, with maintenance expected to last until 7 PM PST.— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) February 11, 2020
Another update will be provided by 1:30 PM PST.
Original Story: Bungie has taken Destiny 2's servers offline for emergency maintenance, following another hotfix patch that's created problems. Like last time Bungie updated the game, players have reported that some of their in-game currencies and materials have disappeared.
Bungie announced that servers were offline on its @BungieHelp Twitter account, but didn't provide any details about the situation. From players responding on Twitter, the bug sounds a lot like what happened with Destiny 2's last big outage, which lasted most of the day after a Tuesday weekly reset. At the time, players reported that their currencies were missing, including the easily earned Glimmer and the not-so-easy-to-snag Legendary Shards, which are essential to upgrading gear.
The most worrisome thing that was missing from players' inventories, though, was Silver--that's the premium currency you can buy with real money in Destiny 2, which you can spend on cosmetic items in its Eververse store.
We are investigating the re-emergence of the issue causing missing currencies and materials after Hotfix 18.104.22.168 went live. Destiny 2 will remain offline, please stand by for further updates.— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) February 11, 2020
To deal with the bug last time, Bungie had to take the step of rolling the game back to the point before the patch was released, something the developer had never done with Destiny before. If the symptoms are the same, it might be that Bungie needs to take the same steps to fix this bug. Last time, servers were down from about 11 AM PT until about 7 PM PT. An outage that long would be a bummer this week, since this update was supposed to come alongside the start of Destiny 2's week-long Valentine's Day event, Crimson Days.
We'll update this story as more information becomes available.
