Halo 2 Going Offline; Servers Being Shutdown in February

By January 18, 2013

Follow me on:

Microsoft announced this week that they will be shutting down the Halo 2 PC multiplayer servers on February 15, 2013. This doesn't come as much of a surprise considering the game is quite dated by today's graphics standards and the fact that the number of players in the multiplayer game has been quite low for some time with a average peak of 20 players over the past few months. This announcement is sure to send more players back into the game for one last go around but once February 15th hits you'll have to get your multiplayer fix elsewhere.

It's not all bad news though, multiplayer via LAN will still be available (not that many are able to use that), but there are also rumors of a 10th anniversary edition with 343 Industries working on a HD remastering of the game to be released in 2014.

Microsoft have ruined their best game!

If they weren’t so up their own ass and trying to shove vista down PC gamers throats people would have actually bought this game. By the time 7 came out it was too late.

Now we have to use these ridiculous “controllers” to attempt to aim at poor graphics. I am never buying a console. Microsoft, I am never buying your products again.
