Those of us who have been through several online and MMO game launches know that these things almost never go smoothly, so perhaps word that Destiny 2 got beaten down during its launch of Shadowkeep isn’t exactly news. Even so, it’s perhaps at least nice to know that there are apparently a lot of people eager to start rumbling around on the Moon.
The Bungie Help Twitter account tells the tale as it details a number of issues that sprang up including Buffalo, Beaver, and Weasel errors (all of which are related to connection issues), issues with purchasing Silver on Steam, and players generally just being unable to sign in entirely. It all built up to the point where the game had to be taken down for some emergency maintenance (and spawned at least one zesty meme in my personal feed).
As of today, that maintenance is now complete though players may experience a queue. Third-party apps that access Destiny 2 details are still offline at the time of this writing, but players can still use the Destiny Companion app to transfer gear.
