Halo 2 PC servers shutting down on Feb. 15

The PC servers for Halo 2 will be taken offline on Feb. 15, a Halo Waypoint community manager announced today on the Waypoint blog.

The blog post explains that the servers were being taken down due to inactivity from the Halo 2 player base.

"We've been monitoring the population for months, and it's been peaking consistently at approximately 20 players or less," the post reads. "Those that own this game can continue to enjoy Multiplayer over LAN after that date; however our network services will be turned off at that time. We love you, Halo 2 PC, and you will live forever in our hearts."

The online multiplayer component for the PC version of Halo 2 has long outlived its Xbox counterpart, which was shut down (along with every other Xbox Live-supported title for the original Xbox) in April 2010.
