Halo 2 PC is shutting down

Before you go and scroll down to the comments section, yes the Xbox version of Halo 2's multiplayer but as of February 15th 2013, the PC version will be disconnected from the Games for Windows service interlinked with Xbox Live. (Bungie, Halo 2, PC, Xbox LIVE)

Wow, I'm surprised, I didn't even realize that this was still an active game. I thought Microsoft abandoned this after the OS launch failure of Vista. I stil don't get why games like this don't have dedicated servers so anyone could play down the road.

Rest in peace old friend.

That's to bad, prime example of why all games of this type need bots so people can still use it.

343 is shutting down Halo 2 PC but that doesn't mean you still can't play Halo 2 PC online in MP with other Gamers.

Google is your friend to find a way to play Halo 2 PC MP Online even when 343 shuts down the servers......You may even find more Gamers on these servers than 343's.

PC is where Games NEVER Die!

Well Halo 2 PC never had a solid shelf life. I don't know if it was banned from certain store chains or what, but I never saw it on a shelf except at its launch window.

All PC multiplayer games need dedicated servers. There is always a way to play on the PC though.

This could mean some PC players might push more for Halo 3 PC as well, but I am skeptical it will happen.

Making way for Halo 2 Anniversary? Probably not, but seems strange.

Can't they just leave us one spot where we can properly play this game without having to find some ridiculous way to join other people? Halo 2 is the only one I can stand playing anymore and this literally kills the "why don't you go play it then" option. XBC and XLinkKai are laggy as fuck and not worth it.This is truly a sad day. :'(

this game looked like crap, i'm surprised anyone is interested in Halo on PC when we have much better series like Half Life or Left 4 Dead.

Thankfully Halo CE is still active. Lots of people still play it.

I loved Halo2 on xbox1 too bad they made the stupid decision to lock it into windows vista and ignore the huge market for xp.

So long old friend hope to see an anniversary edition of you on Xbox 360 or better yet on NG console.
