Default PSA: Halo 2 PC multiplayer servers going offline Feb. 15

Online multiplayer matches in the PC version of Halo 2 are about to get a lot lonelier than they already are, as Bungie will be pulling the plug on Friday, February 15. Matches over LAN will still be possible of course, but as far as playing through Bungie's servers, that's all she wrote.

"We've been monitoring the population for months," the announcement reads, "and it's been peaking consistently at approximately 20 players or less." So! If you're one of the 20 people left in the whole of existence that are still playing Halo 2, allow us to officially welcome you back to society. You'll be pleased to know that several other Halo games have been released in your absence.

LOL 20 players or less. Funny thing is, there are over 5 thousand or so players playing the original Xbox version which requires you to play through the PC and whatnot. They really screwed over the PC version bad.

I'll pass. Most of the servers on there just have idiots running around or doing stupid stuff. I can never play a serious game of Halo CE on PC. Although, I will be using Halo 2 for a LAN I'm doing next month.

I like the PC version of Halo 2. It's the same thing as CE but with better graphics. There are custom maps and everything. I used to play that on LAN all the time before I got all my 360s RGH'd which I use for perfectly legal purposes.

What didn't you guys like about it?

Halo 2? The only problem 90% of the players had with it was the Vista issue back in the day. Nobody wanted to upgrade to ****ty Vista just to play Halo 2 which at the time was perfectly fine on Xbox.

My only problem was the FoV. It looked so zoomed in on both Xbox and PC. I just fixed that today with some hex editing.

Halo 2 is my favorite in the series and I've played it the most mainly on Xbox. I play online from time to time on the Xbox where there are still a lot of regular players. I prefer Halo 2 on the PC over Halo CE because of the resolution support and AA.
