The maintenance happened over two days, starting at 10:00 AM PST on Monday, January 23, 2023, and concluding at 10:00 AM PST on Tuesday, January 24, 2023. The servers were brought offline, and all sign-on and integration features were offline for about an hour during this process, from 8:00 AM PST to 9:00 AM PST. Players could then log back into Destiny 2 starting at 9:00 AM PST.

Check out Bungie’s patch notes for full details on everything that dropped with Hotfix 6.3.0.5. Here are a few examples of what was fixed or changed:

  • Seasonal
    • Heist Battleground
      • Fixed an issue where Shadebinder Warlocks couldn’t shoot Stasis projectiles during their Super.
      • Legend difficulty now grants progression toward various Triumphs and Challenges.
      • Year-5 Seasonal ritual activities now count toward the ritual progress of all Season Pass Exotic catalyst quests.
      • Fixed an issue where the Ritual of the Season Triumph progressed with Heavy Grenade Launchers instead of Pulse Rifles.
  • CRUCIBLE
    • Rumble: Restored as a game mode and removed from the weekly rotation.
    • Showdown: Fixed an issue where revives were not correctly displayed on the scoreboard.
  • GAMBIT
    • Increased reputation gains by over 50%.

After the maintenance period, players reported issues that resulted in additional downtime. The issues reported are players losing progress on specific Triumphs, Seals, and Catalysts. As of now, there is currently no timeline for when Destiny will be back online, or the potential leads are surrounding the loss of progress with certain Triumphs, Seals, and Catalysts. However, we will update our guides once Bungie provides additional details so that you can get back into the game as soon as possible.

Destiny 2 is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
