As part of a blog post related to Destiny 2 rewards, Bungie revealed that it will finally pull the plug on its legacy halo.bungie.net website next month. This is where all of the stats and files for Halo games were archived back in the day before the company parted ways with Microsoft and handed the keys over to current overseer, 343 Industries. Bungie notes that its news articles, forums, and groups have since been migrated to the new Bungie.net website, but older Halo players who wish to keep their memories from over a decade ago will want to go in and save what they can before February 9.
“Almost nine years ago, stats and files from our previous franchise, Halo, stopped getting updated on Bungie.net,” the company wrote. “Since then, all stats, files, and other data from Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach have lived on in remembrance at halo.bungie.net.”
“On February 9, the halo.bungie.net website will be taken offline permanently. Everyone is welcome to save their stats and files, however they can, if they’d like to save anything. Please keep in mind that our News articles, Forums, and Groups were imported into the current version of Bungie.net back in 2013.”
It’s kind of surprising that halo.bungie.net lasted this long, as Bungie officially parted ways with the Halo franchise back in 2010 after the launch of Halo: Reach. Current statistics may be found on 343 Industries’ Halo Waypoint site, which offers service records, game histories, skill ranks, a content browser, and more.
