Series completes its transition to 343 Industries.


Today, the Halo franchise completed its transition from original developer Bungie to 343 Industries. As previously announced, Bungie will no longer update stats or service records, host user generated content, or operate Bungie Pro through Bungie.net as of today.

Bungie previously confirmed that historical Halo data would remain on Bungie.net "for as long as the Internet and Bungie's data storage systems remain functional," and in order to make that happen, they've put a stunning amount of statistics in one spot. As the company's official goodbye, a gigantic infographic has been added to the site's Stats section. The graphic contains information on the number of matches played, the number of kills and even the amount of combined years Halo fans have spent playing the franchise's previous games.

Check out the full image below, and be sure to share your favorite Halo memory in the comments.

Very cool. Halo 2 is really what got me into gaming online, and I will always have fond memories of it. I kinda fell off of playing Halo when 3 came out, but have tried out Reach recently and it brought back some of those fond memories I was looking for.

Man, I owe so much of who I am to Halo, getting into everything I do today was because of halo (coding, designing, researching file formats/reverse engineering) was all thanks to modding Halo 1/2/3/ODST/Reach. Can't wait for either Halo 4 or Bungie's new game now :D.

Saying good-bye in style is creating an infographic?

Uh ok.

Awww. Just like Lels said, Halo 2 is what really got me into online gaming when that first came out, and the unofficial "clan" I played with gave me the gamertag that I still use to this day. Loved 3 the best, I think. My favourite memory is once when we were playing teams, 4 on 4, and I can never remember the name of the level, but it was one of the very tall narrower buildings with the anti-gravity elevators and such. Anyway, I had an energy sword, came up an elevator, and the entire enemy team was standing there. All four of them. Before they knew what hit them, SWISH, SWOOSH, SLICE, SHAZAM I killed all four of them. My first and only Overkill medal (in multiplayer anyway)! My only regret is that I hadn't yet figured out how to replay and save video clips of the game yet, or I'd still watch that one to this day.

More of the ending text that actually is a goodbye IMO. But the stats are nice.

I don't think I've ever spent nearly as much time in any video game than Halo: CE and Halo 2. Especially Halo 2. All night, every night, with my fella and friends. Is it sad to say that I have a lot of very fond memories attached to those games?

And I can remember checking bungie.net as much as most people check Facebook, these days. </3

My hat I remove it from my head, and I'll see you fly away. I hope that for many games to come, you are among the best.

Thanks a lot (Y)
