So as a result of this, I have no choice but to delete all content of CMT's that violates Bungie and MS IP.

I'm sorry guys, I really am, this project was our teams dream and worth all our effort. Hopefully, we will be able to recoup from this and start out again, with our own 100% custom mod. Please don't try to rally to our cause and message bungie or MS, this is the way it will be, and no amount of fan support will be able to change their minds. If we decide to try to fight back, it will be our decision, and we will alert our varios media contacts if we do. Until we ask, PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THIS YOUR BUISNESS!

We'll keep you posted on further developments.

it looks like just about every april fools joke has been debunked. the only ones left to find out is if h2v is actually shutting down and if BCE is actually being put on the backburner. the second one is probably true.
