EA Posted a status update about the Gamespy shutdown that will be taking place at the end of June.
A sad day for all the players still using these online services, and especially the Battlefield-series with a handful of titles losing multiplayer and support.
Hopefully EA will show support for these old classics, rather than turn their backs and almost denying their existence.
But sadly, that’s not the EA anyone knows
But thanks to the community, workarounds and fixes are already being made!
Tuia from Team Simple and s[sk] from –=[ aX ]=– have made a fix for Battlefield 1942.
ReviveBF2 is working on a new battlelog system for Battlefield 2.
Battlefield Vietnam and Battlefield 2142 are still unknown.
- Battlefield 1942 [FIX]
- Battlefield 1942 Road to Rome
- Battlefield 1942 Secret Weapons of WW2
- Battlefield Vietnam [UNKNOWN]
- Battlefield 2 [FIX]
- Battlefield 2 Special Forces
- Battlefield 2 Euro Force
- Battlefield 2142 [UNKNOWN]
EA’s retarded blog post about the Gamespy shutdown (original post)
GameSpy 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 GameSpy’s 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 don’t have anything to announce.
