We have an emergency heads-up for Destiny players now, as we can confirm that Bungie has just taken the Destiny servers down again on June 22, for maintenance that is going to last a long time.
If you were hoping to get a long session in where you live, you won’t be able to – as for those asking what time will Destiny servers be back up, try six hours.
Bungie has confirmed the downtime at 8AM PST on their Twitter account, with Destiny servers due to go back up around 2PM Pacific Time. For those on EST time that means you can start playing Destiny again at 5PM.
It’s obviously not ideal but Bungie insists that this six hour outage is going to lay the groundwork for future updates – we’re guessing the Taken King is related to this since it’s going to be a massive expansion that lands in September.
We can already see that gamers are not taking the news too well on social media and it seems to be the longest period of Destiny server maintenance today that we’ve seen this year.
Give us your reaction to the fact that Destiny servers are down on June 22 for six hours – do you wish that Bungie picked a different time?
