Destiny 2 Servers Will Go Down for Hotfix, Scheduled Maintenance, Notes and more

Destiny 2, the popular online multiplayer first-person shooter developed by Bungie, is set to receive Hotfix on Thursday, March 30, 2023. Bungie will take both Destiny 1 and Destiny 2 servers offline for maintenance to deploy the update. Here’s everything you need to know about the scheduled downtime and what to expect from the upcoming Hotfix.

The maintenance process will start at 9:00 AM PST, with sign-on and game integration features becoming unavailable on the web, mobile, third-party apps, and the Bungie Store. At 9:45 AM PST, servers will be brought offline, and players will be removed from in-game activities.

The downtime is expected to last until 11:00 AM PST, when Hotfix will become available across all platforms and regions. Players can then log back into the game but may face queues or sign-on issues due to ongoing background maintenance.
