While the game will live on the website will not. According to a post on the Halo Wars website, all players are being transitioned to Halo Waypoint.

Greetings, friends.

Halo Wars / Halo Waypoint Transition

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. What this means is that the Halo Wars site will be taken offline and we will ask all of you, if you’d like to continue discussing the game, to do so over at the home for all things Halo, Halo Waypoint.

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. We have very big plans for Halo Waypoint, and if you’ve seeen the mobile app that we just announced, then you’ll have an idea of where we’re headed with it. Additionally, its forums are fully moderated, so it will be a lot less chaotic than this place tends to be on occasion. I think some of the members here have realized this latter point because we’ve gotten the suggestion from a few members here to ask this community to move over there.

The removal of the dedicated Halo Wars website also means there will no longer be leaderboards or any stat tracking at all. Now while I’ve never been one to care about such things there are many Halo Wars players who are quite pissed off right now and an exclusive avatar for the forums is not enough to appease them.

I suppose an Honor system to record W/L is out of the question 😛

  • Wow I am really surprised this is happening. I am not that annoyed though, I am not one for forums. But still I see no point in doing this.
