Destiny is a quite popular game among gamers and with the announcement of Destiny 2 gamers have been playing the game frequently. However, Destiny servers will be offline next week for a period of time as Bungie will be performing maintenance of the servers.
Bungie has announced that server downtime will start on Wednesday, May 17, starting at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ETand will end at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET the same day. Meaning if everything goes to plan then Destiny server downtime will last for only four hours. During the downtime, players will not be able to sign-in to Destiny servers and some Bungie.net and Destiny companion app features will be offline.
Destiny 2 will launch for PC along with the consoles, unlike the first game which was not released for PC. However, gamers are skeptical that the PC version of the game will not get much attention or content. However, according to Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg, the PC version of Destiny 2 will have meaningful features.
During the recent post-earnings conference call, Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg acknowledged that the main issue with Destiny was that it could not keep up a steady stream of content to keep up with the player’s demand and reiterated that Destiny sequel will have a steady stream of content.
Destiny’s engagement has been the best in Activision’s history. We now have a lot of confidence that we’re going to be able to keep up with demand with that steady stream of content and sort of keep pace with our players’ engagement post-release of Destiny 2. As you know, with Destiny 2’s content, we’re coupling Bungie’s great visionary leadership with multiple AAA developers that have a proven track record here at Activision to help us make sure we have just one great piece of content after another to keep the community engaged.
Destiny is a first-person action shooter developed by Bungie for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Gameplay for Destiny 2 will be revealed on May 18 next week.
