Without much ado, Microsoft has decided to cancel the development of Halo Online, which was exclusive free PC. This cancellation comes shortly after Alpha version launch in Russia only, with no success and the reason is quite simple, users faced a online shooter with an excess of Microtransactions where you have to pay for almost everything (skins, improvements, weapons, etc.).

One team member of development team said that: “Microsoft had failed to [make] decisions on the future of the project” for the last six months.
“Halo Online was built from the ground up specifically for the PC,” 343 said. “There are no plans to bring Halo Online to the Xbox One.” Further, anyone trying to access the game outside of Russia could “theoretically” do so, but they “would have to go through region-specific changes to address player expectations.”
Fogeyman says that as a result of these delays, “the current form of Halo Online will not be released.” Saber has removed Halo Online from the 4games platform and suspended its VK page as a result of the cancellation. The next Halo release is the upcoming Halo Wars 2.
