Destiny PS4 down today, server hotfix after update?

By Alan Ng - Oct 28, 2014

We were not expecting any Destiny server maintenance to happen today, but it looks like the PS4 2.0 update which has Just gone live has in-turn caused problems with Destiny on PS4 going down today for everyone as we speak.

At the time of writing, Destiny servers are unavailable in the US and UK again and it looks like it could be a global downtime as well. We’ve had a quick look on Bungie’s Help Twitter page though and there’s no information from Bungie before or after the Destiny servers went down.

A likely explanation for the downtime is that a Destiny PS4 hotfix is being applied, or that Bungie is working on some internal aspects of Destiny so that they play nicely with Sony’s new PS4 system update 2.0 – avoiding incompatibility between the two for instance.


Hopefully it won’t take long for Bungie to fix whatever is causing the problem and you’ll all be able to enjoy the game again soon. Now of course, you’ll be able to record your Destiny gameplay and upload it directly to YouTube on the PS4.

There’s also the world of SharePlay which has now opened up to Destiny players, so this is a game-changing update for all concerned. For now, let us know if you can get into a game right now or if you are having issues like us.

    Just sat down ready to chill out for a bit and play destiny. Then see that I have to update to 2.0 before being able to play… Annoying but thought oh well just a little wait…. Only to find out after waiting for the update the whole ps and destiny servers are down… Great update Sony!!

      • Marc Springer

        I haven’t had any problems with the PS server since I upgraded to ps4 I’m sure ps3 have some issues still and I don’t think they’re all that interested in fixing them

  • Anthony Ocasio

    All is fine for me, here in Miami, FL. I even got some jackolyte from the game. Some crazy holiday treat they provided their players with. PSN servers are working fine for me with the new 2.0 upbate it just got.

    As a subscriber to PS+ I think they need to start offering money off or exclusive voucher codes for in game extras when these maintenance issues occur.

  • TheSquareRootOfThree

    Well i cant get on psn so maybe sony doing something there?. To come and blame it on firmware 2.0 is a little harsh as i cant see how it could mess with destiny servers. I think its just psn thats down at the minute.
