Destiny 2 Servers Are Back Online, As Game Reaches 200,000 Peak Concurrent Players

The "emergency maintenance" is over.


Amid the launch of Destiny 2 Shadowkeep and Destiny New Light, Bungie pulled down Destiny 2's servers to complete a round of "emergency maintenance." That maintenance, which lasted multiple hours, is now complete.

While the servers are back up, Bungie told fans that they may have to wait in a server queue before playing. Server queues are normal for online games, and are meant to help ease the strain on servers that could cause other network-related problems.

Now Playing: Destiny 2: How Does Free-To-Play Change The Game?

"Emergency maintenance on Destiny 1 and Destiny 2 is now complete. Players may encounter a sign-in queue as the population returns," Bungie wrote on Twitter.

The Destiny downtime came on the launch day for Shadowkeep and New Light. Despite the issues, Destiny 2 was able to reach an impressive 217,845 peak concurrent players on Steam. Big numbers were expected given New Light is free and Shadowkeep is a much-anticipated expansion.
