has an update on the status of some of their game's impacted by
the impending end of GameSpy
. Most of the news is good, though it sounds like online multiplayer
support is ending for Age of Booty
As you may
have heard, the GameSpy online service will shut down on May 31. This closure
affects online functionality for several titles spanning the entire games
industry, Capcom included. Today we have updates on our titles, so if you
currently own any of the games listed below please take note.
Lost Planet 3 (PC/PS3): Migration to a new service has already begun, so
we're not anticipating any online downtime. However, due to switching servers
the leaderboards and current play stats will be reset. We'll have more
information about the reset soon, so please check back. (Note the X360 version
Age of Booty (All versions): Unfortunately there are no plans to update
or migrate this title to a new service. It's been a great ride (2008/09-2014)
and we thank everyone who sailed these seas. You can still play this title
offline or grab friends for some LAN action, however.
Flock! (All Versions): Same as Age of Booty; there are no plans to
migrate this title. You can still download and play the game, but be aware
online features - such as the level editor sharing function - will no longer be
Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition: Already migrated and
there are no issues.
Marvel vs Capcom Origins: Already migrated and there are no issues.
We sincerely appreciate the dedication these games have seen over the years and
hope you continue to enjoy them after the shutdown.
