Destiny Servers Down For Next Few Hours

Bungie has announced that starting right now the servers will be down for up to 6 hours. 

According to Bungie, the update is to pave the way for the future. This should include some content for The Fallen King, which you can learn about here. The DLC is not due until September, but it is always good to start things early. 

Spread the word. Destiny will be offline for maintenance tomorrow, starting at about 8AM PDT. Downtime could last for 6 hours. Future plans!
