The lead-up to Destiny 2: Shadowkeep has all Guardians wanting to log on and get cracking into things to power up before the planned maintenance on the last day of the month, but if you've tried to log on today than you may have been thwarted. We explain the Destiny 2 No Longer Available Error in an attempt to help you figure out what's going on.

Destiny 2 No Longer Available Error: What's Going On?

After the fiasco with the Destiny 2 "Currant" error code a few days ago, which we also covered off, we were hoping that there wouldn't be any other hiccups before the planned maintenance which Bungie has given us plenty of notice about. For those not in the know, the game is going to go down on 30 September and come back up for the launch of Shadowkeep on 1 October. 

As of half an hour ago, there are Destiny 2 players out there in the world encountering Cherry, Tapir, Orange and Stinkbug errors. The most concerning error message, however, is the one that says that your version of Destiny 2 is not available. Before you get concerned and burn your console of choice, though, we have the official explanation for it.

There was some background maintenance planned by Bungie today, though it now appears that the maintenance isn't exactly "background" anymore. It's meant to be over in a little bit, but this is currently an issue affecting players regardless of region or console so the fix might take a little longer than expected. Some players are also getting a "You don't have a character associated with this account" error code before the Destiny 2 no longer available error, but the two appear linked in terms of experience. In short, it's nothing that you can actually action on your end of things as a Guardian. You just have to wait for the maintenance that Bungie is carrying out to actually finish. In the meantime, if you're only encountering a continuous Sign In screen error, the help forums are recommending that you restart your game and give it another go.

We'll update you when we know a little more about when maintenance might actually end, but in the meantime we've got our fingers crossed that we can hop back into Destiny 2 soon.
