When will the server shut down?

When are they going to shut down the server for this game? I need to 100% this game but I'm just not ready yet to do that super long time consuming achivement yet... and I am scared to run out of time

Halo 2 PC's servers are still up and running, so I doubt these will be shut down any time soon.

Yeah, I don't think it will be shut down anytime soon. Had it been a EA server, then yes, it would have been axed by now. Most companies, however, don't do this. Although, this game is ran on a Microsoft server, I believe, since Ensemble Studios no longer exists. I mean, games like Quake 4, Gears of War, Call of Duty 3, etc. still have fully functioning Live play, and those games came out around the 360's original release.

It is kind of strange how some games stay around for years and years while others get the axe within a year.

With this in mind I really would not have minded more companies putting their online solutions on Microsoft servers (not likely with companies like EA but still, one can dream).

Having said this I really hope that the Halo Wars servers will stay online for a while longer. I still need to grind my way to "Lieutenant and General".

I think EA and 2K or other companies that run their own servers can shut them down at any time, but anything on Microsoft's servers should be good for the life of the console as long as the game publisher retains the rights to the game.

I really hope they don't shut these down 'cause one of my favorite things to do is to just watch my brother play. He's so much better at it than me... Anyway, it does make sense though that if a company like EA owns their server they reserve the right to shut it down whenever they please.
