Online multiplayer for Crysis and Crysis 2 on PC being removed with GameSpy server shutdown

With the imminent shutdown of GameSpy server infrastructureCrysis and Crysis 2 on PC will be losing all multiplayer functionality as announced on the Crysis forums.

GameSpy announced earlier in the month that it would be shutting down a host of servers which maintain the online functionality for a huge range of games across PC, consoles and mobile. A post on the Crysis forums highlighted that while the multiplayer portions of the games on PC would be removed single player would still be accessible as would the multiplayer component on both PS3 and Xbox 360.

“The single-player campaigns in both games are unaffected by this transition, and the multiplayer mode in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Crysis 2 remain playable.” CryTek thanked the loyal fans who had taken part in the games’ multiplayer and apologised that the modes would be removed. “We’d like to thank everyone who has taken up arms in Crysis and Crysis 2’s multiplayer modes in the last few years, and apologize to the small but dedicated community of PC players who are still actively competing against one another.”

Other than Crysis other games affected by the server shutdown include ARMA III, Battlefield 2, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 2142. EA has advised that it is looking into migrating the servers for some games so as to keep multiplayer options available.
