Destiny 2: The server was down for hours due to a fire

Destiny 2: The server was down for hours due to a fire ...

This old adage came true again yesterday in Destiny 2. An error was introduced during Tuesday's maintenance, and the servers are still down.

Last night, Destiny 2's weekly server maintenance went haywire. The imported hotfix 6.3.0.5 was faulty and resulted in players losing their progress on triumphs, seals, and catalysts.

Bungie reacted fairly swiftly and took the servers offline, and this is still the case as the developers continue to search for a resolution to the issue. At the least, Bungie kept the community updated via Twitter, although a resolution is still being tested.

As soon as the actual issue is resolved, Bungie will restore the server to pre-hotfix state. According to Twitter reports, this can last until around 1 or 2 p.m. today.

Hotfix 6.3.0.5, which is quite extensive, was intended to fix minor issues, modify some weapons, and enhance abilities in preparation for the release of the new Lightfall expansion on February 28th.

A drop of rage for those who have really heard a lot of good news about Destiny 2 in the last few days, among them the new mod system and new loadouts, the new raid start date, and a brand new trailer:

Neomuna-Trailer in Destiny 2: Lightfall

The new trailer for Destiny 2: Lightfall highlights a new destination – Neomuna, a futuristic skyscraper and neon lights. Calus’ invasion of Neomuna is shown, as do Guardians fighting their way through the city with the new Darkness subclass, Strang.
