Bungie.net Halo Services Ending on March 31

Bungie's passing the torch to 343 Industries

Bungie doesn't make Halo games anymore, but they have still maintained the game stats and player service records for the Halo games thus far. Well, that will change on March 31, because Bungie issued a statement today saying that all live data will now be handled by 343 Industries.

"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," they said. "All currently supported, Bungie-developed Halo titles will be impacted by this change. Any replacement functionality, and all future Halo support, will be provided by Microsoft and 343 Industries via Halo Waypoint."

Bungie said it would preserve all existing historical Halo data on Bungie.net "for as long as the Internet and Bungie's data storage systems remain functional." 343 Industries is Microsoft's new internal Halo studio and is currently developing Halo 4. The studio comprises of some former employees of Bungie.
