Destiny 2 Servers Going Offline Next Week, Here's When And For How Long

Downtime is coming.


Destiny 2's servers will be offline for a period of around four hours next week, developer Bungie has announced. In a blog post today, Bungie confirmed that hotfix will launch on Tuesday, January 16, with the principal aim of allowing everyone to play the latest seasonal content regardless of if they purchased the Curse of Osiris paid expansion.

The maintenance is slated to begin at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET on January 16, at which time you won't be able to log in to Destiny 2. At 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET, everyone who is already in the game will be booted out. The maintenance period is scheduled to run until 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET, at which time the servers will come back online for everyone. As always, while this is the announced scheduled, things could change; we'll report back if that is the case.
