Destiny 2 will have 25 hours of downtime before The Final Shape launch

"Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet." - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

In preparation for the release of The Final Shape, Destiny 2 will see an extended downtime period for maintenance. This is to be expected, The Final Shape is going to be one big expansion, and the more maintenance we get the better. While I can't help you with what you'll do during said downtime, I can at least let you know when they'll be down, and for how long they'll be out.

According to an in-game notification I received today, starting on June 3, and ending on June 4, Destiny 2 will be completely unavailable to play for 25 hours. If you're planning to count down the hours and can't wait to get back in, we've got a guide on how to check the down status for yourself.

The start times for the maintenance period on June 3 are as follows -
PDT - 09:00AM
MDT - 10:00AM
CDT - 11:00AM
EDT - 12:00PM
BST - 17:00PM

The end times for the maintenance period on June 4 are as follows -
PDT - 10:00AM
MDT - 11:00AM
CDT - 12:00PM
EDT - 13:00PM
BST - 18:00PM

While Destiny 2 is offline, preloads for The Final Shape expansion will be going live, so use the downtime to get what is likely to be a very chunky download out of the way so you don't have to wait around on launch day. It's also worth noting that even once the big maintenance downtime is over, there will likely be server instability and potentially even additional hotfixes, so your experience might be a bit wobbly for a while afterward.
