has an "Update on EA Titles Hosted on GameSpy," admitting they don't yet have a
plan to preserve multiplayer support in some of their titles impacted by
the impending shutdown of GameSpy
. They say they are hoping the community can participate in finding a
solution, but in the meantime they announce they have nothing to announce in
announced earlier this month that they would be ending all hosted services
for games, which impacts the online capabilities of a number of older titles,
including some from EA.
Since GameSpyís announcement, our teams have been working to evaluate options to
keep services up and running. Unfortunately, due to technical challenges and
concerns about the player experience, we do not have a solution at this time.
Online services for EA games on the GameSpy platform will be closed down at the
end of June.
We know some of these games are still fan favorites, including Battlefield 2,
Battlefield 1942, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and Command & Conquer games. We
are still investigating community-supported options to preserve online
functionality for these titles, such as multiplayer. Significant technical
hurdles remain, and at this time we donít have anything to announce.
