Halo 2 PC Servers to Shut Down on Feb 15
Microsoft will shut down Halo 2‘s PC multiplayer servers on February 15.
Halo Waypoint’s Jessica Shea broke the news, citing dwindling player counts of 20 or fewer as the reason:
“We’re sad to report that the service end-date for Halo 2 PC Multiplayer will be February 15, 2013. We’ve been monitoring the population for months, and it’s been peaking consistently at approximately 20 players or less. Those that own this game can continue to enjoy Multiplayer over LAN after that date; however our network services will be turned off at that time. We love you, Halo 2 PC, and you will live forever in our hearts.”
Halo 2 released on PC in 2007, two and a half years after its Xbox debut.
