It's time to let go, old friend, of all those Halo stats you were proud of all a decade ago. Bungie has announced that its archive of player states from Halo 2, 3: ODST, and Reach are going to go offline next month and so you might want to go see if you can save your information while you can.
Bungie has long since separated from Microsoft (all the way back in 2007) but before the separation and working on new space series, Destiny, the development studio was known for working on Halo. Even after the separation in 2007 wherein 343 Industries took over Halo, it seems that Bungie still retained some bits and pieces from working on the action-shooter, including the archives of stats for the games they produced.
Those stats have been live ever since on the halo.bungie.net website but Bungie has decided that it's time to get rid of the archives after all these years. On February 9, 2021, the website will be taken offline forever and you'll no longer be able to find random stats from decade-old games.
In the blog update Bungie shared the information in, the development studio says, "Almost nine years ago, stats and files from our previous franchise, Halo, stopped getting updated on Bungie.net. 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."
So, go get your info while you still can! Once it's gone, it's gone - however, Bungie can never take your memories away from you.
