Microsoft’s announced it’s to close the website for Halo Wars and wipe online player stats for the RTS.
The move is so it can live under Halo Waypoint. It happens on December 15.
“In an effort to provide the Halo Wars community a lively, active, and well-moderated set of forums for discussion, we are soon going to be transitioning the Halo Wars forums to Halo Waypoint’s forums,” said a moderator on the Halo Wars forums.
“While I know some of you will see this as bad news, it really isn’t: Halo Waypoint, unlike HaloWars.com, is updated daily by bs angel and the rest of the community team.
“Additionally, its forums are fully moderated, so it will be a lot less chaotic than this place tends to be on occasion.”
A fifth title update will also be available for the RTS which will “fix the Theater issues that are preventing some players from viewing some cutscenes” as well as “backend work” when the move to Waypoint takes place.
Halo Wars released in 2009 for Xbox 360, and was the last title made by Ensemble Studios before it closed.
