It’s time for yet another lengthy period of Destiny 2 downtime. This time around, we’re looking at five hours of server downtime, during which Hotfix 126.96.36.199 will be made available to download and install.
Community Manager David “DeeJ” Dague offered a hint at the upcoming changes:
Happy New Year.
Back at Bungie today to check final details for tomorrow’s deployment.
We’ll be restoring game rituals like Iron Banner and Faction Rallies to working order for all. Updates to the live calendar to come next week.
