Destiny 2 is down for 25 hours from June 3 until June 4 as the developers roll out the full updates to the various servers. These big expansion updates are always huge, and a lot of time is needed to ensure server and build stability when going live.

When the servers come back up, players will be able to dive into The Final Shape, prepare for the upcoming Raid on June 7, and start the Echoes episode.
