Russia-exclusive Halo Online PC game is getting shutdown

Most people probably know Halo as the flagship FPS game series on Microsoft's Xbox consoles. But what you may not have heard is that in early 2015, Microsoft released a free-to-play game called Halo Online for Windows PCs, making it exclusive to the Russian market.

You can wait and hope that it eventually gets released, or you can pony up the cash for that other console.

Microsoft is looking into Xbox One’s ‘Halo: Reach’ issues

Xbox One owners hoping to rekindle their fondness for Halo: Reach were disappointed to find the game runs very poorly on Microsoft’s latest console.
