Bungie has confirmed that Destiny 2 servers are down today so that they can perform maintenance before the start of Season 14.
Annoyingly for fans of the hit shooter, maintenance began just before Xur and Trials of Osiris began, meaning there will be less time to play them this week.
And there is no way for Bungie to extend both events as Season 14 will be going live on Tuesday, May 11.
The good news is that Destiny 2 servers will only be down for few hours and should be back online before the end of the day.
A new post from Bungie provides the latest information, telling fans: “Destiny 2 is being brought offline for expected maintenance.
“At 2 PM PDT (2100 UTC), players will be able to log back into Destiny 2. Ongoing maintenance is expected to conclude at 3 PM (2200 UTC).”
For gamers in the UK, this means that Destiny 2 servers will be back online at 10pm BST, on May 7.
It should be noted that while there is Maintenance being conducted today, there will still need to be another period of downtime on May 11.
This is so Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer can commence, and will also mean gamers will need to download a new patch.

Regarding future tuning plans, we also wanted to pull a word from Sandbox Discipline Lead Kevin Yanes:
Kevin: Hey all!
The Sandbox team is working on a slew of tuning updates over the next few Seasons. We’re aware of key points of feedback in PvE and PvP. In update 3.2.0, we have a few minor changes to Stasis Hunters and some bug fixes that you see above. Here’s a quick list of some key places we’re actively looking at for the future: Stasis Freeze, Slow accuracy penalties, and Whisper of Hedrons. We will share more with you soon.
