Microsoft cancels Halo Online

Back in 2015, Microsoft announced a F2P multiplayer version of Halo for the PC, called Halo Online. Halo Online was powered by a reworked version of the Halo 3 Engine, and was meant to be released first in Russia. However, it appears that Halo Online will never get officially released.

As the Halo Online team revealed on the game’s Russian VK social media page, Microsoft has not made any decision on the future of this project for over six months. And as a result of that, the team decided to stop working on it, and announced that the current form of Halo Online will not be released.

Halo Online was built from the ground up specifically for the PC, and was said to be a learning opportunity for Microsoft as it explore ways to welcome new fans to the “Halo” universe.

For what is worth, PC gamers can still enjoy Halo Online thanks to ElDewrito.

Still, it’s kind of disappointing that there won’t be an official version of Halo Online!
