Free-to-Play Halo Online Cancelled

Halo Online was to be a free-to-play game for the Russian market. News comes from a Russian social media site via Gamasutra that the game has been cancelled. 343 was developing this game along with Russian developer Saber Interactive and publisher Innova Systems.

The game has had an alpha and beta back in 2015. A member of the development team claims that Microsoft has not made a decision on the game in over six months and therefore the came cannot move forward and is officially cancelled.
