The PSN server status has changed in the last 15 minutes with reports pointing to Destiny servers being unavailable right now. The problems started in the UK afternoon on Feb 12, although they also impacted United States gamers playing Destiny on PS4 as well. One error code being reported states, “PSN CE-34861-2”, although these codes depend on the section you are visiting at the time of any outage.
Online Social Media received reports from a number of our readers and they first detailed the PlayStation friends list having problems, one PS4 owners said “It won’t load and I cannot get connected to the server in Destiny”. They weren’t alone, Twitter was flooded with “PSN is down” messages as well on Feb 12, 2015.
It’s unclear if the problems will remain for long, but considering those at school return home in the UK and can’t play many of their favorite games, there will be upset. We tried the game on a PS4 and noticed it kept saying, “contacting Destiny servers”.
Are you having problems with PSN and Destiny servers today, if so are you finding them down? We have reached out to both Destiny developers and Ask PlayStation on Twitter to find out more. The official PSN server connection status is online, so this means they haven’t updated yet or the problems are isolated to certain regions.
Update: The downtime is for scheduled maintenance today, which started in the early UK afternoon and ends later tonight.
