“We’ve been monitoring the population for months, and it’s been peaking consistently at approximately 20 players or less,” reads Halo Waypoint site. “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. #singletear.”
