Destiny 2 gamers trying to update their games and play the new Shadowkeep content have been told that queues have been put in place.
This is stop server issues overwhelming the game during today, with plenty of things happening behind the scenes.
This includes the launch of Destiny 2 Shadowkeep content, as well as the game going free-to-play.
Destiny 2 New Light will be available to play today, with the preload put in place earlier this week.
But for now, gamers trying to install the latest Destiny 2 update may have to wait.
Returning Guardians are seeing “Destiny 2 is at capacity” error message when trying to complete the process.
The latest from Bungie explains: “There is currently a temporary queue that players may experience when logging into Destiny 2.”
“Please stand by for updates.” these limits on servers are expected to be kept in place for much of tonight.
Bungie has already warned that Destiny 2 server disruption could carry for at least two hours, during which time background maintenance will be performed.
Trying to launch Shadowkeep and set the game’s F2P mechanics live will certainly cause some disruption in the coming hours, perhaps days.
The latest from Bungie reads: “Destiny 1 and 2 are back online, and Update 126.96.36.199 has begun rolling out across all platforms and regions.
“Users may experience sign-on issues as background maintenance is still ongoing.”
Today is set to be massive for the Destiny franchise, with today’s update and F2P changes being treated as a reboot of the game.
“During 2019, we’ve developed and shared a clarity of vision we’ve never had before in Destiny. We’re finally going to make the Destiny 2 we’ve always wanted to make—one world that you and your friends are going to meaningfully change and make memories in,” a message from Bungie reveals.
“This year, our team has felt the full weight of what we’re responsible for (even on your worst days in the game, no one is harder on us than ourselves). But we now have a unified purpose. A calling.
“October 1st is the first step toward what we want Destiny 2 to become. Everything we’re doing this fall is more than just any one part – it is Destiny 2 fundamentally evolving and in some ways starting new. It’s Shadowkeep, it’s New Light, it’s Cross-Save, it’s you, me, and our friends together. It’s all of it.
“This isn’t just the next chapter of Destiny 2, but the next chapter of us.
“Tomorrow, that journey begins again for all of us and many, many others. These past few months have been awesome with you. Thanks for being the bright points of light shining in the night. You are Destiny’s stars. Be that light for the new Guardians wandering around the Tower, soloing a public event, dropping into Crucible for the first time, or trying to learn Raid mechanics you can do with your eyes shut. We were all Kinderguardians once.”
