Microsoft has announced that the online stat-tracking in Halo Wars
It appears Microsoft has had a change of heart after stating earlier this month that they planned to make the statistics tracking features unavailable after 15th December, 2010.
In an interview with IGN
, a spokesperson for Microsoft explained the change of plans, which was provoked by the outrage expressed by many fans:
After seeing the reaction and passion from Halo Wars fans as well as Halo FPS fans who were concerned about the future of other Halo titles, we determined that the previously stated plan of action was not in line with our intended plan of loyal support for Halo games.
The Halo Wars and Halo Waypoint forums will still be merged, but other than that, nothing changes. Keep playing Halo Wars and keep checking your stats on HaloWars.com!
Access to the stat-tracking features could possibly still change in the future and as a result Microsoft has assured fans that "if and when the location of accessing your stats changes, we will let you know at that point in time".
