When will Destiny 2 Servers Going Down for Maintenance?

As stated above, Destiny 2 servers will go down on Monday, September 25th, 2017. The schedule was announced on Bungie’s website. So, here’s how it’s going to go down. At 6 AM Pacific Time / 1 PM UTC, the servers maintenance begins, and you won’t be able to log into the game anymore. At 7 AM Pacific, all players currently online will be booted from the game, too. By noon Pacific Time, the maintenance should be over, and you can hop right back into Destiny 2. The reason for the servers being down isn’t just server maintenance, but because it’s preparing Destiny 2 for Update 1.0.3. After the servers come back up, you’ll be prompted to update the game before you jump back in.

So, for about five hours, you’re gonna have to take a rest. Whatever plans you had with your fireteam, you’re gonna have to postpone them. If you’re planning to take on the Leviathan Raid, or the Exodus Crash Nightfall, you’d best plan around this time. You don’t want to get kicked out of the game right as you’re about to beat the event, now, do you? Of course, the whole thing will be a different level of annoying depending on your time zone. If you end up experiencing problems after the maintenance is over, or with the update, well, you’ll probably have to reboot your console or just wait until Bungie sorts it out.
