GameSpy Servers Shutting Down in May

 

http://www.tomshardware.com/news/gamespy-software-pc-gaming-multiplayer-closing,26458.html

 

From the article:

 

"A large number of game publishers use GameSpy Technology for multiplayer services. Epic told Polygon  that it has been phasing out GameSpy for its Unreal series of games, and will introduce its own in-house solution next week. Capcom says that several titles will be affected by the closure, while Bohemia Interactive says  that the closure will affect CD authentication, matchmaking and NAT traversal in several of its games."

 

Don't know what UBIsoft will do concerning this.  There's not a lot of info out there about this, or I am Googling it wrong.

I haven't been able to find many details on this either.  I'm wondering what BI plans on doing about their games.

On the upside, GRAW does support direct connections, so if you are slightly insane (or technical, same thing really...), it would be possible to keep the game live without gamespy.  It would just make it slightly harder to connect to the server, and you wouldn't know if others are on before connecting.

I haven't played it much in the last few years, but I'd hate to know my favorite games won't play online.
