The planned retirement of GameSpy network will affect multiplayer components of several EA games such Battlefield 2 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2. While several companies have decided to ditch their games, EA is working to find a solution to keep its affected games running.
@Tofugames We're working on transitioning those games after the shut down so you'll still be able to play them.

When asked for clarification, an EA official confirmed that the company is "working on finding a transition, but still have technical hurdles to overcome. We will make an announcement when there is news to share."
According to GameSpy, more than 800 developers and publishers made use of its services over more than a decade online, including Capcom, Nintendo, Electronic Arts, Epic, Ubisoft, and Konami. Nintendo had already announced the termination of Wii and Nintendo DS online services that use GameSpy technologies on May 20th, 2014.
