A particularly annoying problem some Destiny 2 players are having is one in which an error message appears saying “this version of Destiny is no longer available.”
Though an official workaround hasn’t been outlined as of late by the developer, there are several solutions that may resolve the issue. First off, try manually checking for updates for the game. This can be done by using the software’s “Check for Update” option featured on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This can be done if Destiny 2 is taking an abnormally long time to begin the process, too.
If this doesn’t work, try deleting your console’s cache. Clearing this portion of your device can help the update become more readable by the game. You may also just have a lot of items downloading in the background at the same time.
The most probable reason why you’re having the issue is this: Bungie is simply doing maintenance on the game. As was the case earlier today, the message indicates that the developer hasn’t updated the server yet. In other words, “this version of Destiny is no longer available” is just a standard message for a mismatched version of the game. Your copy of Destiny 2 is perfectly fine – you’ll just have to wait until everything is back to normal.
Knowing how to update Destiny 2 in a variety of ways can help if you plan on sticking with the game for some time to come. After all, Bungie does have intentions on updating the title regularly so as to maintain in-game features like raids or address gameplay issues. Keep in mind that whenever an update releases, it’s required of all players to have all previous updates installed as well.
