On Thursday, November 13th, we’ll be taking Destiny offline for several hours. This totally planned service outage will enable us to prepare for the arrival of a series of updates planned for the next few weeks.
During this time, you’ll be unable to play Destiny. We’re sorry about the interruption, but it’s for the greater good.
Once services are restored, your experience as a player will be unchanged. The updates we’re making will be on our side, so you won’t need to download or install a new batch of content.
This work will help us pave the way for the progress that was foretold in the last Weekly Update.
The maintenance window begins around 8AM Pacific. We’ll be done by (or shortly after) Noon, if all goes according to plan.
