The popular video game, "#Destiny 2," will be taken offline on #Thursday (Nov. 2) for maintenance on a "stuttering bug" issue, according to pcgamer.com. The game was released earlier this year, but there is already an expansion that will be released in December. Gamers reported that "Destiny 2" had issues with displaying the clan roster, which will require turning the game off so Bungie, the developer of the game, can implement the bug-fix. Hotfix 1.0.6.1 should be offline for only one day, with 3 PM ET being the scheduled time for the server to be shut down.

The stutter bug seems to be affecting those who play for long hours at-a-time, and Bungie reported on their Twitter that, "In addition to Update 1.0.6, 'Destiny 2' [VIDEO]PC will receive Hotfix 1.0.6.1 to address issues impacting Clan rosters and performance degradation."

Gamers are warned to wait until before starting 'Leviathan Raid'

The fix will specifically target the stuttering screen that many have reported so far; the scheduled maintenance comes the day after "Leviathan Raid" goes live on PC, which is an extensive, hours-long activity, which requires six players at a time.

For newbies, the time that is required to complete "Leviathan Raid" may be much longer, so they are encouraged to wait until after the hotfix is implemented before beginning the raid.

'Destiny 2' expansion is scheduled for a December 5 release

The extension pack, which Bungie confirmed will be called, "Curse of Osiris" will include a renegade warlock Osiris who is described in the extension trailer as, "the most notorious Guardian in Vanguard history." by Ikora Rey, the Warlock Vanguard. According to polygon.com, new playable areas in "Destiny 2" have been leaked online, revealing the Infinite Forest on Mercury as one of them. They have not revealed any additional information.

Bungie confirmed that the Lighthouse will be open for all gamers, instead of only those who were able to uphold a perfect performance during the Trials of Osiris game in "Destiny," but they have not revealed any additional information.

This extension is one-of-two planned expansion packs that will be available, and the second add-on is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2018.

Hopefully, Bungie will have the stutter bug fixed, so devout gamers can battle against the Vex invasion of Mercury after the highly anticipated expansion pack is released on #December 5.
