It Will be Going Offline For A Few Hours November 13 to Destiny Servers
Bungie has announced that they will be taking the Destiny servers offline for a big maintenance window, to prep the servers for the roll out of new features in the weeks ahead. The servers will be offline on Nov. 13th from 8am PT to noon PT, a window of four hours.
The downtime will allow the developer to prep some of the upcoming changes headed to the game as part of its December expansion, The Dark Below, as well as general additions to the game that will be available to all.
"On Thursday, November 13th, we'll be taking Destiny offline for several hours," community manager Deej explained in a newblog post.
"This totally planned service outage will enable us to prepare for the arrival of a series of updates planned for the next few weeks. During this time, you'll be unable to play Destiny. We're sorry about the interruption, but it's for the greater good.
"Once services are restored, your experience as a player will be unchanged. The updates we're making will be on our side, so you won't need to download or install a new batch of content. This work will help us pave the way for the progress that was foretold in the last Weekly Update."
That update mentioned upcoming changes including chat compatibility for matchmade teammates, improved exotic weapons and new gear shaders.
Other updates will streamline areas for better "traffic flow" and once again improve the chances of experiencing one of the game's public events.
