One of the last ties that remained between Bungie and Halo will be severed on March 31. Bungie will finish transferring all live Halo data to 343 Industries and 343 will begin managing all that data. Already, most Halo data is available on halo.xbox.com. But starting on the date mentioned above, “Bungie will no longer be able to update game stats and player service records, to host new user generated content, or to operate the Bungie Pro service.”
In addition, “Any replacement functionality, and all future Halo support, will be provided by Microsoft and 343 Industries via Halo Waypoint.”
Luckily, “Bungie will preserve all existing historical Halo data on Bungie.net for as long as the Internet and Bungie’s data storage systems remain functional.”
Bungie finishes their message with thanks, as usual for this classy dev:
“Thanks for making the Halo-era version of Bungie.net more successful than we could have possibly imagined. You complete us. See you starside.”
One question that has yet to be answered is whether you’ll still be able to redeem your Vidmaster achievements for Recon armor on the new 343 site. Hopefully so, as there are still plenty of people fighting to get their flashy new duds unlocked.
