If you haven't heard the news, Gamespy, one of the world's longest running game matchhmaking services, is shutting down shortly and unfortunately, it's taking the multiplayer functionality of a lot of older games with it.
If you play multiplayer in any of the following, chances are you won't be able to after the shutdown:
- ARMA 2
- Halo: Combat Evolved
- Saints Row 2
- Star Wars Battlefront
- Star Wars Battlefront 2
- Stronghold 2
- Stronghold Legends
- Take on Helicopters
And these are just the confirmed ones. In this Reddit thread, they've put together a long list of other potentially effected titles and it's very long indeed. It includes games liike Quake 3, Battlefield 2, Medal of Honour: Allied Assault, Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Shogun Total War, Civilisation III and IV and many more.
It has been confirmed however that ARMA 3, ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead, Company of Heroes, Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike Online Edition, Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD will not be effected.
Do you guys play any of these games?
