The lights are on
Tucked away at the bottom of a recent Halo Waypoint news post is the unfortunate news that Halo 2's PC multiplayer servers are going down in February.
The PC version of Halo 2 released back in 2007, three years after the Xbox version of Halo 2. The servers are officially shutting down on February 15. One of the reasons the servers are going down is that in the last few months the number of players has been capping out at only 20 or fewer, so it's not hard to understand why they're going down.

To all you jerks saying that this story was a waste of bandwidth, I got a message for you:I'm one of those "20 people". Halo 2 MP is better than Halo 1 simply because of the massive balance compared to CE in which vehicles actually blow up and the pistol wasn't the "Z0MG JESUS GUN". That is my 2 cents.
I can understand that. It costs resources, time and money, to keep these things going. If it's not worth it, shut it down and move on. I know, folks have nostalgia for the game but unfortunately, nostalgia doesn't pay the bills.....yet. Muhahahahaha!!!
better solution, make more people play... i would love to play online but like it said no one plays it... its a shame that i have to watch my favorite game of all time be murdered twice... RIP Halo 2... again...
and yet Halo CE is still very alive and well... gee I wonder why.
those poor 18 i mean 20 players.
Every single person in the comments section has a serious case of USI.
Probably because people who still play h2 online use Xbox connect.
