Bungie have called time on their support for Halo stats, releasing a new infographic that shows just how much love and devotion has been pumped into the multiplayer aspects of the games over the years.
"We have followed your careers with great interest here on Bungie.net, and you have gifted us a mountain of heroic moments to memorialize," wrote community manager DeeJ.
"It is with a sense of awe that we step back and admire the impact that you have had on our games, and upon our studio. Thanks for sharing your stories with us."
Since September 2004, when stat tracking was introduced two months before the release of Halo 2 on Xbox, nearly 21 billion games of Halo have been played online. Bungie calculated that in the collective time gamers have spent playing the Halo games online, you could have travelled the Milky Way t lightspeed, and back.
It's the end of an era, to be sure, and it almost brings a tear to the eye. Thanks for the memories, Bungie.
