Why is Destiny 2 At Capacity? Server Downtime, Queue Times Explained (Today, August 24)

Earlier, the game was slated to follow the given schedule.

  • 1500 UTC– Destiny 2 will undergo maintenance for Update 3.3.0.Some Destiny API features on, mobile and third-party apps will be disabled. No sign-in to the site or apps will be possible.
  • 1545 UTC- Destiny 2 will be brought offline for expected maintenance. Players will be removed from activities and won’t be able to log back into Destiny 2 until 10 AM PDT.
  • 1700 UTC– Destiny 2 Update 3.3.0 will be available across all platforms and regions.
  • 1900 UTC– Destiny 2 maintenance is expected to conclude.

However, it seems like players will need to wait a lot more in order to play the game. The maintenance is still going on and has been delayed for four hours, so it will now be getting over at 23:00 UTC. Until then, players will be facing frequent queues while playing the game. It is not quite advisable to wait in a queue as sometimes it takes hours to get past that, so your best bet is to try after the maintenance is over.
