Bungie has almost completed
transferring player stats, data and content for Halo to servers
managed by 343 Industries, the company reports. Come March 31, all
live data pertaining to Master Chief and his crab-faced cohorts will
be managed by Microsoft and 343 via the Halo Waypoint service.
If substantial portions of
your life are invested in the Halo player data, there's not really
much you need to do – which is lucky, as there's not really much
you can do. Bungie explains that all Halo support will now be
provided through Waypoint, while legacy data will be preserved on
Bungie.net “for as long as the Internet and Bungie's data storage
systems remain functional.” Expect something hilarious to happen on 343's first day on the job...
