Update: After doing whatever it did, Bungie is "slowly" bringing Destiny 2 back online. You may have to spend some time in a queue before getting back in, and other rough bits could crop up, but with any luck the Season of the Splicer is now, for real, underway.

One interesting twist in all this is that crossplay is apparently working to some extent, even though it's not supposed to go live until later this year (opens in new tab).

NOT A BAIT. Here is proof.@JustManda_ on PC, @xKingAllan on the box. I could see them on the same fireteam from Xbox on my end, allowed me to join for a second before "weasel". She has been able to join again on her stream.(https://t.co/ASYPNWPzSC) https://t.co/SgSPSNLZxhMay 11, 2021
Bungie hasn't elaborated on what exactly the issue is here or when we might expect the game to return, but we'll keep an eye on things and update when it's time to get back into action.
