With the arrival of Halo Waypoint vNext, a brand-new digital home for your Spartan is about to be minted. With the planned launch just around the corner on November 1, you’re going to have access to a litany of new features including:

  • Access to Waypoint’s news feed, to ensure you’re up to date with the latest intel
  • The ability to personalize your Spartan in Halo Infinite using all the customization options you’ve unlocked
  • The chance to check out your service record in Halo Infinite, MCC, and Halo 5
  • Graphs and stats to keep track of your carnage
  • The ability to keep track of your Battle Pass progress
  • Reviewing your current ongoing Challenges in Halo Infinite
  • A unified experience across mobile apps and web


Today’s current iteration of Waypoint is the result of 8-years of continued investment into a single website, while vNext has only been cooking for a few years and spans web, iOS, and Android.

The features that will not join the transition to vNext will be: Halo 5 Spartan Companies, browsing the Halo 5 User-Generated Content (UGC) features, the Halo Wars 2 Service Record, the Universe section, and some older News articles.

For Halo 5, what’s happening specifically with Spartan Companies and User Generated Content (UGC)
Spartan Companies will still appear in Halo 5 but without our interface you will no longer be able to edit your Company info or roster. (So, if you have any planned updates, we recommend you do them now.) Your Company's Service Record and Commendations will not be visible, but they will continue to tick behind the scenes and rewards (including Achilles) will continue to be granted. Your roster will be locked with no way to add, remove, promote, or demote members. Spartan Company forums will no longer be available.

Halo 5 UGC will be unaffected in-game, to be clear, but the Waypoint interface to browse your Halo 5 game variants, map variants, and Forge object groups will no longer be available. 

For Halo Wars 2, what will happen with the Service Record?
As we weigh all of the potential website features against every active Halo title, we often have to make difficult trade-offs to prioritize areas that directly benefit the largest audiences in our community. As we focus on robust support for Halo Infinite, this unfortunately means that we won't be able to maintain Halo Wars 2 service records on the new website. The good news is that the Halo Wars 2 public API and third-party services remain unaffected and that data will continue to flow.

This is something we haven't discussed here but is huge, heart-braking news. Halo 5: Guardians is effectively killed, after November 1st everything is going to be harder to retrieve any data until we make applications/pages around the Halo API here. Halo Wars 2 service record going away is a brutal loss but so long as the data points are available through the Halowaypoint API.
