Bidding Farewell to Halo 2 Multiplayer
Filed under: HALO, HALO 2, MICROSOFT

If anyone still cares about this, publisher Microsoft is planning to shut down Halo 2 PC multiplayer, starting February 15 - this is officially going to be the service end date for Halo 2 PC multiplayer. Also, they highlighted that the game has multiplayer achievements, which won't be available as soon as Halo 2 goes offline.

"We've been monitoring the population for months, and it's been peaking consistently at approximately 20 players or less," said Halo Waypoint's Jessica Shea. "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."

There you have it.

Anybody really bothered by this?

I'm guessing 20 people or less will indeed be bothered.

If the can still LAN they can still use Hamatchi to play. They'll be fine.

I'm bothered they don't make Halo games for PC anymore.

What, they are turning off online multiplayer for some game released a decade ago? For shame!

But yeah, if this affects you then google Hamachi or other VPN products. Or go back to LAN play.

I've been using Hamachi for like Dungeon Keeper lately. Might do it for Masters of Orion or Freespace depending on who else I can get to play.
