Destiny beta goes offline for two days

Maintenance forces PlayStation gamers offline until Wednesday

The Destiny beta has been taken offline 'for maintenance' and will not return until Wednesday, July 23, Bungie has announced.

"We are beginning the process of taking the Destiny Beta offline for maintenance. It shall return on 7/23 for all registered testers," the developer has announced via its Twitter feed.


"This means that Destiny Beta maintenance is in progress. The Beta will be closed on 7/21 and 7/22. Back open on 7/23," it clarified.

There's no further information on what, if anything, will be different when the beta returns online, but the downtime could be related to preparations for the Xbox platforms' beta release this week.

The beta period for Destiny commenced last week for PS3 and PS4, while the Xbox One and Xbox 360 beta will launch July 24.

Bungie is undecided on whether progress made in the Destiny beta should be carried over to the final game, Bungie community manager David Dague recently said.
