Beta faces server issues

Players who encountered the server issue were welcomed with an error message every time they tried to log in. However, the video game developers were able to fix the problem immediately, and it has been announced that the servers are back up and running. Players are encouraged to report any glitch in the game they run into. #Destiny 2 beta
