Last summer, Bungie and 343 Industries began a transition process for Halo data. On March 31st, 2012 that transition process will be complete, all live Halo data will be managed by 343 Industries, and Bungie will no longer be able to update game stats and player service records, to host new user generated content, or to operate the Bungie Pro service. All currently supported, Bungie-developed Halo titles will be impacted by this change.

Any replacement functionality, and all future Halo support, will be provided by Microsoft and 343 Industries via Halo Waypoint at

Bungie will preserve all existing historical Halo data on for as long as the Internet and Bungie's data storage systems remain functional.

Thanks for making the Halo-era version of more successful than we could have possibly imagined. You complete us.

See you starside.

Halo stats and file shares will be unavailable from for about an hour this morning for database maintenance.

Update:  This work is complete, everything should be working as normal.

No new features this time.  Just boring maintenance that will disable stats and file services for about an hour this morning, beginning shortly.  This story will be updated upon completion of the work.

Halo 3's unofficial achievement.

If you've already completed Halo 3's campaign on Legendary difficulty, you won't earn any additional gamerscore or achievements for slugging your way through a solo run with all skulls maniacally turned on, but you will earn mad street cred and a heightened sense of self worth.  If you just read that sentence and shuddered a bit at the prospect of such a daunting task, fear not, The Tyrant over at HBO is meticulously stitching together a level-by-level guide, offering his gentle words, and more recently, embedded videos to hold your hand throughout your attempt.  He's dubbed the run "Mythic" difficulty.
