Xbox/Xbox Games
Microsoft is going to kill the original Xbox Live service completely on April 15th.

Yep. On April 15th a whole slew of games will go dark, including Halo 2.

On April 15 we will discontinue the Xbox LIVE service for original Xbox consoles and games, including Xbox v1 games playable on Xbox 360 and Xbox Originals. I want to start by saying this isn?t a decision we made lightly, but after careful consideration, it is clear this will provide the greatest benefit to the Xbox LIVE community.
They don't say what the benefit is, meaning that there really probably isn't one beyond their being able to shut down or repurpose a number of servers.

No word on whether the old DLC packs will die as well (such as the Halo 2 map packs), but they likely will.
