Destiny 2 Server Maintenance Schedule (January 20)

According to the official Bungie Help Twitter account, the Destiny 2 server maintenance schedule will begin at 8AM PT / 11AM ET / 4PM GMT. However, players won’t be affected until 8:45AM PT / 11:45AM ET / 4:45PM GMT when the Destiny 2 servers are brought offline to deploy the new patch.

Downtime is only expected to last for 15 minutes, meaning players will be able to log back into Destiny 2 at 9AM PT / 12PM ET / 5PM GMT. Background maintenance is expected to then continue for a further hour, so although players will be able to play Destiny 2 at the aforementioned time, they may experience certain connectivity issues as the maintenance wraps up.

A brand new update will also be deployed during this time for all supported platforms to download before they can jump back into Destiny 2 and continue the grind.
