Microsoft To Close Halo Wars Community Website

Microsoft has decided to shut down the Halo Wars community website and move its discussion area to Halo Waypoint's forums.

In a blog post on the Halo Wars website, Microsoft said that the website will be shut down and those wishing to continue discussing the game can do so on the Halo Waypoint forums.

Halo Wars forum moderator Cocopjojo said that “when we transition the forums to Halo Waypoint, we're also going to be taking HaloWars.com completely offline. So the forums will disappear and so will online stat-tracking. I know this will be rough on a lot of you, and I can promise that it wasn't a decision made lightly.”

According to Fudzilla, Halo Wars players are not happy with Microsoft's move and have stated that removing stat-tracking will kill the game.

Halo Wars, which went on sale in February this year, was released despite its developer Ensemble Studios going out of business months before the game came out.
