Halo 2 Multiplayer Servers Revived by Fans

Fans of the classic Xbox game Halo 2 have a reason to celebrate as dedicated players have revived its online multiplayer servers. This revival is made possible by the Insignia project, a free and unofficial alternative to the original Xbox Live service, aimed at bringing back online multiplayer for the original Xbox platform. The official Insignia Twitter account announced this week that a public beta version to revive Halo 2 servers is now available.

The public beta includes ten playlists for matchmaking, offering a variety of game modes for players to enjoy. These playlists are:

  • Rumble Pit
  • Double Team
  • Team Slayer
  • Team Skirmish
  • Team Training
  • Team Snipers
  • Team Hardcore
  • Team Swat
  • Big Team Battle
  • and H2 Challenge

This initiative has caught the attention of Max Hoberman, a former Bungie employee who designed many of the multiplayer features in Halo 2 and Halo 3. Hoberman expressed curiosity on Twitter about whether the Insignia team could match or even improve upon the original design specifications he had set for the game.
