halo 3 on 360 servers still not working

after 3 to 4 days the servers are still saying the info could not be retrieved so the maintenance 343 did was it to shut sown the servers and i want answers because i don’t want 343 quietly shutting down all old halo games servers and i wanted this game backwards compatible

343 doesn’t shut down servers for Bungie Halo games, neither does bungie for that matter.

That’s all Microsoft, friendo.

If the servers for Halo 3 were going to be shut down there would be a rather large announcement about it from 343, they wouldn’t just close down without notice.

No they didn’t, they did a pretty big announcement with a countdown clock and a party since it was one of if not the first big XBLive game

Nope, they announced Halo 2 Vista in a weekly bulletin a few years back. They actually kept the servers alive for about 2 years after the cut-off as a lot of people asked for them to keep them going. I think the might finally be gone now, but it was announced

@paxtonwr - you’re thinking of Halo 2 for Xbox, not PC :stuck_out_tongue:

What maintenance are you talking about exactly? I did not see any updates about this.

There was a thread pinned here in Classic and in the Reach forums as well. Maintenance was at the end of last month

Yeah, that is the one I was thinking about I just remember reading a story a while ago about it. Even then the servers for all of these games have been for an amazingly long time. I went back a played some Titanfall the other day with some friends and one of them was like “Man this must be the first time I have ever played a two/three year old game online.” It is incredible for me to believe that there are still people out there playing H3 online games. Nothing at all against you MadRaven, just saying.

it said the maintenance lasted Feb 29th - march 1st guess what its march 30th and the servers are still down

damn are they adjusting things for backwards compatibility we do know it was one of the games leaked on the list back in October and is on the feedback page so who knows

Just curious, but if you are going to try and play this game on Xbox one, why wouldn’t you just play H3 mp in MCC. It has been very stable for me now.

Cause it isn’t very stable for a lot of people still. And because Halo 3 plays better on the 360. It feels better on the MCC, but plays better on the 360.
