    I haven't seen any evidence, other than this article, which was pointed out by ant1th3515, was written in Feb of 2013, that these servers are shutting down. I can still get onto the Crysis 2 MP mode, and haven't seen elsewhere of talk of a shut down of those servers. Nothing on other forums.

    Lame early April Fools joke from GameSpy maybe?

    I just checked and GTA 4's servers are still up as well.

    When life gives you lemons, make orange juice and leave people wondering how the hell you did it.

    Oh, no!

    -GameSpy programmer- "Uh! Uh! Uh!" -Me- "You are so stupid!"


    Okay, I better start work on some of these games right now before it is too late. Jeez... There's too many old games that their game servers will be shut down very soon. Happy Trophy Hunting, trophy hunters.

    Just a thought (if you even feel like being bothered), any chance you can make updates to the OP with the latest news and info?

    That's great to hear. I did think it was a bit weird, considering Rockstar mentioned that they weren't going to be shutting any servers anytime in the foreseeable future.

    Just read an article that the console version of Crysis 2 will NOT be affected. Here is the link

    That quote appears to be related to this forum posting on the Crysis formus. Crysis - Official Community • View topic - Crysis and Crysis 2 PC Multiplayer Modes Set to Shut Down

    Then it seems that is official, which is sad for the PC games that loved the game, but awesome for console gamers, since i still need to go back and get the multiplayer trophies for Crysis 2.

    Update from 2K - Borderlands and Civilization Revolution for ps3 going offline May 31st
    2K Support

    Starting May 31, Borderlands® 1 PS3 and Civilization® Revolution PS3 will also go offline as a result of GameSpy Technology's online service termination. We are currently investigating the technical feasibility of transitioning those titles. Again, players will not experience interruptions to offline play for these titles. We will provide updates as they become available.
    Guess I'll be getting onto Borderland's viral trophy before the servers are gone.

    Update from R*
    Grand Theft Auto 4 is one of a handful of Rockstar games affected by the closure of Gamespy, with various Rockstar Social Club and online multiuplayer features getting the chop. Read on to find out how your favourites have been affected.

    GTA 5 is too new to be affected by the closure, but Rockstar is having to make some change to older titles as a result of the closure.
    Unfortunately it looks like some games won’t be migrated, with several games losing some or all online features.
    Here’s the break down of affected games and modes. Note that if something isn’t listed here, it’s going to be fine – online multiplayer will remain in Red Dead Redemption and GTA 4, for example.

    • Max Payne 3
      – Online multiplayer gameplay: Removed for the Mac version only
    • Red Dead Redemption / RDR Game of the Year Edition / RDR Undead Nightmare

      – In-game multiplayer leaderboards: Removed for PlayStation 3 version only
      – In-game Rate My Ride and Driving Test unlocks: Removed

    • Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition / MC3: Dub Edition Remix
      – Online multiplayer gameplay: Removed
      – In-game multiplayer leaderboards: Removed

    Glad that these 2 will still be playable online. I don't know if the removal of the leaderboards bothers me, but overall happy that I along side others, can still play both of these games online.
