It's been a while since the mention of Halo immediately involved Bungie, but this is not about reunions - quite the contrary, in fact, as Halo stats are going bye bye.

Writing in their This Week at Bungie blog, the studio reminded that their earlier golden goose, Halo, hasn't had its stats and files uploaded to the website in nine years. This left a bunch of Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach stats online, almost like a little remembrance corner. 

Unfortunately, the dev is getting ready to purge what's left of those memories, so if you're keen on keeping them, you better start looking for a way. 

"On February 9, the website will be taken offline permanently. Everyone is welcome to save their stats and files, however they can, if they'd like to save anything. Please keep in mind that our News articles, Forums, and Groups were imported into the current version of back in 2013", they wrote.

Each of the aforementioned Halo games has been a blast in its own right, and it's been quite a trip taking a look at them. Apparently, we're not alone, as many players are getting flashbacks. 

Stats and memories aside, it's nice seeing Bungie on top of their game once more, as their run for independence and parting ways with Microsoft seemed to get them in a worse deal than they had.

Throughout their partnership with Activision, Bungie insisted that the publisher had nothing to do with development, but fans kept seeing the complete opposite. The latter's independence proved who was right, though, as the Destiny franchise has been soaring like it's nobody's business.
