Destiny 2 has begun its official console launch around the globe

Destiny 2’s console servers are beginning their staggered opening today, starting with our friends down under in Australia and New Zealand, where the clock’s just struck midnight and the streaming hoopla is now underway.

Multiple outlets are reporting that you may be able to sneak in anyway if you happen to have received your physical disc already, as the servers are already up. Digital folks, you’ll be waiting until the designated time. And PC players, you’ll have to contend with mere beta for now; it launched last week, at least for those who’ve purchased a copy ahead of the final October 24th PC launch.

I had to leave for a family situation and won’t be streaming new Destiny content this time around. I’m bummed!

Enjoy.

If it sucked why did you play it for years?

Cant say i’m too hyped about it , i got the feeling i’l still get the Canary error like i did in early access and open beta. Might as well expect it and get a refund if i do get the error at release. If anyone managed to fix that when the PC beta was live i’m open to suggestions.

I played in the PC beta w/o issue. From what I’m reading Canary has to do with the stability of your internet connection, and I have a good netgear router. Did you try temporarily using a wired connection to see if that fixed it for you?

I even scanned for net fluctuations or tares in the data transfers. It has nothing , just a green line without holes. This is the first and only game that ever gave me this issue.
I tried a VPN and i had the same problem in the beta , kept getting that error and i couldn’t play it at all.
This thread has over 100 upvotes , meaning lots of people might have had the same problem and couldnt play it.

Yeah that’s not nearly as simple as their official help on the canary error makes it out to be! They have a couple months to track it down….here’s hoping for everyone’s sake they do….

Agreed. I didn’t even know it was coming out today until I saw the date of the game on a train advertisement for the game yesterday.

I’ll only get it if my friends get it on PC later, if they won’t, then I won’t. I bought the first on Xbox One and I felt a strong sense of regret very quickly. The Bungie I knew was dead.
