Bungie has decided to change the weekly reset times in Destiny 2, starting next month. After December 5th, the reset will no longer happen at 1 AM Pacific Time every Tuesday. Instead, the new time will be 5 PM UTC. The reason behind the change is easier aligning of weekly resets and content releases. Additionally, Bungie wants to align the availability of events like Iron Banner and Trials of the Nine with the weekly resets. The new reset times will happen along with the launch of Curse of Osiris and Season Two of Destiny 2.
As all Guardians know, the current time of Destiny 2 weekly resets is 1 AM Pacific time every Tuesday. Starting December 5th, when Season Two and Curse of Osiris, this is going to change. Why is that? Well, the weekly blog spot on Bungie’s website, it’s because “weekly resets would not always coincide with content releases.” The problem has been happening since the first Destiny. Of course, the devs tried to fix the situation in Destiny 2, but, as they put it, they can’t prevent every scenario. On top of that they’re also “…seeking to align the Milestone resets with event availability, such as Trials of the Nine or Iron Banner, to provide a uniform experience for players to follow each week.”
So, the answer to these problems is moving the reset time from 1 AM Pacific Time to 5 PM UTC, or Coordinated Universal Time. This translates to 9 AM PST / 12 PM EST / 5 PM GMT / 6 PM CET / 9 PM MSK / 2 AM JST / 4 AM AEDT / 6 AM NZDT. If your time zone hasn’t been mentioned, just go to an online time converter to find out when the reset will be happening where you live. Hopefully, this change will solve the problems that it’s supposed to address. Just be sure to readjust your schedule to accommodate the new reset times next month.
