Bungie's Halo Website is Going Offline Permanently Next Month

Bungie has revealed that halo.bungie.net is going offline permanently on 9th February 2021, taking years of stats and files with it.

The site has been static for nearly nine years now - not long after the release of Halo: Reach - with stats and screenshots from Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo ODST and Halo: Reach preserved since then, but once the site shuts down in a few weeks, it will all be gone. In a post on the Bungie website, Senior Community Manager Dylan Gaffner said that “everyone is welcome to save their stats and files, however they can, if they'd like to save anything.” 

“Please keep in mind that our News articles, Forums, and Groups were imported into the current version of Bungie.net back in 2013.”

Jason Scott, from The Internet Archive, confirmed that they had archived much of the site in 2015, but if you do have any stats or files that you want to grab from halo.bungie.net then there's no time like the present.

  • Man did I love having these stats tracked. So many memories, sad to see the record of it being blinked out.
  • With this coming next month and the online being disabled at the end of the year for all OG titles on 360, this sure is heartbreaking. It’s what got me to get an Xbox console in the first place.
  • Those were the best years, it’s been a long time since halo 4 came out that I visit the site might as well make one last visit.
  • I grabbed all my friends Reach Spartan avatars I could remember the gamertags to and put them all in a group photo with names under them. That way I'll always have a keepsake for that one last time we all got together under Bungies roof.

    What's more sad is I can't think of a single other fps series that did networking so damn well.
  • i already got what i wanted. A record of a custom match where we all hung out in the gulch for like 14 hours doing our own battle royale.
