Destiny 2 prepares for its Steam jump with maintenance and preloading

The vestibule.

It’s almost time for Destiny 2 to enter the verdant fields of Steam, and you had best believe that comes along with some maintenance times. Yes, the game is going to be going down for maintenance on September 30th as part of the final launch preparation, with 24-hour maintenance ending on October 1st concurrent with the launch of Shadowkeep. It’s a whole new world of free-to-play there, and you can be ready for it by pre-loading on Steam.

Players who have been playing on PC via the Battle.net launcher are reminded once again that you’ll need to migrate your account before the end of the month, even if you’ve taken care of the pre-loading side of things. Expect further updates from the developers with final instructions on getting ready for the Steam launch; it’s less than a week away now, and it should mark an interesting milestone in the game’s overall development history. You can also check out the launch trailer for Shadowkeep just below.

I’ve only played Destiny 2 on and off, so I guess this will be an excuse to get back into it a bit! I’ve already done the account migration and the preload is downloading right now.

I’m hoping the account linking is a smooth transition. I’m not going to have to deal with it until my Stadia arrives, so with any luck any kinks in the process will be worked out by November.

I’m curious if my account will be smoothly transfered to Steam as soon as it’s online. I’ve filled the requisite forms ca. 2 months ago?

From Bungie’s website:

PLEASE NOTE: Following the launch of Destiny 2 Update 2.6.0 on October 1, migrated PC players will experience a delay in the transfer of their Forsaken licenses on Steam. As this work continues in the background, we invite these players to play new content introduced in Shadowkeep, or access the suite of content available for free through New Light.

So this means will have access to everything except Forsaken content until after the delay.

Having an MMO “taken from you” doesn’t feel as weird as I thought, then again I uninstalled D2 in like January. Anyhow, have fun whoever is still playing.
