Game Stability Roadmap

In the latest weekly Bungie article, Bungie shared a roadmap for their plans to improve game stability. Check out the roadmap below to learn what Bungie’s plans are to improve game stability over the next two Seasons.


“When gameplay messages from Destiny 2 are received, they are sent to a key service called “Claims,” which then routes them onto the server that is responsible for your player data. This is an essential service for keeping the client and server in sync during every moment of gameplay. As you can imagine, this means Claims handles a tremendous amount of volume, routing every single kill, orb, or unit of Glimmer in Destiny 2 to the correct recipient.”


To give everyone a clear understanding of our next steps to steadily improve game stability, we’ve developed a roadmap with key milestones over the next two Seasons:

  • Ongoing:
    • We will continue to make improvements to our production and deployment processes to reduce the risk of disruptions for players while reducing our maintenance and deployment downtime windows.
    • We will also constantly improve our response procedures for incident recovery to bring Destiny 2 back online as quickly as possible when incidents occur.
    • This work has been ongoing and will continue throughout this timeline.
  • Mid-Season 21 (update 7.1.5):
    • We will make targeted improvements to our logging and alerting systems, allowing us to diagnose issues more quickly with Claims and related systems.
    • These changes are designed to minimize the risk of further degrading stability, while helping us to confirm the effectiveness of fixes further out on the roadmap.
  • Season 22 Launch (update 7.2.0):
  • We are deploying a large set of improvements meant to improve the “self-healing” ability of Claims and reduce the odds of us needing to bring Destiny 2 temporarily offline when an issue occurs.
    • We are adding functionality for services to detect Claims services that are in an unhealthy state and send their messages to healthy services instead.
    • We are additionally making six targeted fixes to Claims systems where we have identified issues that could impact Claims stability or recovery.
    • We are making an improvement to better evict old gameplay messages in our pipelines, which should help with faster recoveries and reduce the chance of a “death spiral” of slow messages causing more slow messages.
  • We are also deploying improvements that will help us to make Destiny 2 services even more robust in the future.
    • We are adding improved support for targeted “Chaos Testing” against our services, allowing us to better simulate different failure modes for our services.
    • We are adding more logging for non-Claims portions of our messaging pipelines to detect other issues that could lead to connection problems for players.
  • Finally, to reduce the odds of introducing new problems with these changes, we are also updating and expanding our Claims Unit Tests. This is automated testing that verifies code is behaving the way we expect it should.
  • Season 23 Launch (update 7.3.0):
    • Based on the results of our 7.2.0 updates and improved logging, we will be targeting deeper and broader architectural improvements to improve the service stability and rapid recovery of Destiny 2, which will include a range of additional improvements.
