Bungie prepares to hand off final Halo responsibilities to 343 soon

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 “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...
