About a week ago, we reported that GameSpy, the online gaming service, would be shutting its doors on the 31st of May. The service has been around for the longest time ever and we guess all good things must come to an end eventually, right? Unfortunately what this means is that some games might lose their multiplayer functionality, and some of the titles that utilized GameSpy’s services included some older Battlefield titles.
Now the good news is that while we doubt there are many gamers who are still playing some of the older Battlefield titles, EA has announced that they will be working on a transition that will bring the games onto other services where multiplayer games will continue to live on. According to an EA official, “We’re working on finding a transition, but still have technical hurdles to overcome. We will make an announcement when there is news to share.”
Unfortunately not every Battlefield game will be making the cut but according to EA, they have named three titles which includes Battlefield 2, Bad Company 2, and Battlefield 2142, so if you are still playing those games and would love to continue playing them with friends, hopefully EA will come up with a way to let you keep doing so.
