Bungie reveals date for Halo data transition

Bungie has officially announced that it is voluntarily passing on the reigns of the Halo data, the last controls it has over it anyway, to 343 Industries on March 31st. The developer declared the news via the official blog, The new guardian 343 Industries will have full ownership over Halo data.

"Last summer, Bungie and 343 Industries began a transition process for Halo data. On March 31st, 2012 that transition process will be complete, all live Halo data will be managed by 343 Industries, and Bungie will no longer be able to update game stats and player service records, to host new user generated content, or to operate the Bungie Pro service.

All currently supported, Bungie-developed Halo titles will be impacted by this change. Any replacement functionality, and all future Halo support, will be provided by Microsoft and 343 Industries via Halo Waypoint at http://halo.xbox.com."

Bungie also mentioned that they will be preserving historical Halo data on Bungie.net for "as long as the Internet and Bungie's data storage systems remain functional."
To conclude, they wanted to thank their followers: "Thanks for making the Halo-era version of Bungie.net more successful than we could have possibly imagined. You complete us.

See you star side."

So as of March 31st all Halo data (excluding historical) will be in 343's power, is this transition a step-forward for Halo? Will 343 Industries meet the standards of fans?
