Microsoft Cancels Free-to-Play Halo Online

Apparently I'm not the only person that totally forgot there was a free-to-play Halo Online game in Russia. If social media posts are to be believed, it would seem that Microsoft has totally forgotten about the game as well.

It was a game that seemed to mimic Activision’s partnership with Tencent to develop Call of Duty Online for China. In both cases, the developers took a globally popular IP and adapted its gameplay and publishing format for a foreign market. However, according to a member of the development team going by Fogeyman, Microsoft had "failed to [make] decisions on the future of the project" for the last six months.
