According to a report by Kotaku Australia, Destiny 2 has been taken offline for a second time in two weeks in order to address issues where players are losing currency and materials. Bungie announced the downtime earlier this morning via Twitter:
Destiny 2 is being brought offline for emergency maintenance. Stand by for updates.— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) February 11, 2020
This issue has been resolved, but also required a rollback, meaning that many players have lost progress since the update that caused the issue. This obviously caused some outrage from dedicated fans of the series:
Due to the rollback:— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) February 12, 2020
💠 Any progress or purchase made between 8:30-10:30 AM PST will need to be redone
💠 Silver spent during that time will be restored
💠 Platform store-purchased Silver bundles will not be affected by the rollback
💠 Fractaline will be returned to inventories https://t.co/Rq4SVfPNJX
Bungie have been supporting both Destiny and Destiny 2 incredibly well over the years without much of an issue, so it is unclear what the cause was for the loot being lost, and them ultimately being forced to rollback, which we are sure isn’t a pleasant experience for anyone.
Whether players will be compensated for the inconvenience caused still remains to be seen, especially considering this this happened twice now in a very short space of time.
Bungie has a breakdown of what happened and why it happened here. It details how the game handles quests and inventory management and why there have been two rollbacks now.
