Halo 2 on Xbox LIVE to be disabled on April 15, 2010

Today Microsoft announced that as of April 15th they discontinue Xbox LIVE service for original Xbox consoles and games (i.e.Halo 2). This includes Xbox v1 games being played on an Xbox 360. You can read the official news post [url=http://majornelson.com/archive/2010/02/05/xbox-live-being-discontinued-for-original-xbox-consoles-and-games.aspx]HERE.[/url] To everyone who has played, enjoyed and supported Halo 2 for it's 5+ years of dominance on Xbox LIVE, we thank you! It is of course sad for any of us to accept the end of an era but it's been a good ride. That said, mark your calendars now - on April 14th we're going to hit Halo 2 en masse for one last HOORAH, old school style.

  • Master Chief Collection bringing Halo 2 multiplayer back. This is one of the best things about owning an Xbox One!

  • god i miss halo 2, i came on bungie.net to check my old stats. they arent even here. i hate this. halo 2 was more than a game for me its a whole chapter of my life where very important things happen and i would just really love to relive those awesome intense 24 tv/24 xbox/ 24 people halo 2 lan parties i used to have. or go try as hard as i could to get above level 33 in team slayer without standbys. i miss never getting bored of playing lock out over and over and over again. i miss 1-50 ranks. i miss bungies level of awareness of the fans and there involvement in everything xbl. halos torch will never be passed. 343 is already proving that they dont know what halo is by putting halo/cod 4 out. i want to be able to guess where someone is around the corner simply because they move the same speed as me(sprinting isnt halo). i could rant endlessly. i hope other halo 2 fans read this and agree. i just want someone to tell me that im not an idiot and that games have been on a decline since the end of halo 3s era. and that a 100% the same version of halo 2 needs to be released. nothing changes other than maybe some graphics/glitch fixes,also all original maps included.

      • My pc doesn't have promiscuous mode so no XBC for me. It's ok, because I prefer Halo 3, but still want to come back from time to time :(

      • 2 years of golden days of a video game,, that's pretty rare. Shows how awesome it really was. I am still one of the few loyal Halo 2 fans who still play online to this day via XBC. Still isen't the same as H2 matchmaking though :( [Edited on 07.19.2012 11:41 PM PDT]

      • I got Halo 2 April 10th, 2010. I played online right after it got taken off LIVE. Now I can't play Halo 2 with friends. What a dissapointment. The funny thing was about a week or 2 after Halo 2 got taken off LIVE, I went to a friends house and he was playing Halo 2 online for the PC.. I was mad....
