On a sadder note, Halo 2 PC players can wave goodbye as servers will be shutting down by mid-February.

Halo community manager Jessica Shea writes on the Halo Bulletin, “…we’re sad to report that the service end-date for Halo 2 PC Multiplayer will be February 15, 2013. We’ve been monitoring the population for months, and it’s been peaking consistently at approximately 20 players or less. Those that own this game can continue to enjoy Multiplayer over LAN after that date; however our network services will be turned off at that time. We love you, Halo 2 PC, and you will live forever in our hearts. #singletear.”
