MS: "We Are Continuing to Support the GFWL Service"

In reporting the removal of GFWL support from Ms. Splosion Man, GameInformer.com got a quote from Microsoft about the status of Games for Windows LIVE, which has been dropped by many games over the past year amid continuing rumors the unpopular service would be closing down. In spite of interpretations to the contrary, MS doesn't actually say they are not planning on killing GFWL, but they do say they are currently continuing to support it:

We are continuing to support the Games for Windows Live service. As previously announced, as part of the retirement of Microsoft Points the Xbox.com PC marketplace was closed. Although customers are unable to purchase new games from the marketplace or receive title updates, they can continue to enjoy previously purchased content by downloading them through the Games for Windows Live client as usual. We remain committed to investing in PC gaming in the years ahead, and look forward to sharing more in the future.
