PC: Crysis 1 & 2 Lose Online Multiplayer In GameSpy Closure
Crytek has officially confirmed the online multiplayer portions of Crysis 1 and 2 on PC will be closed down when GameSpy shuts its servers off on May 31. The first two games in the futuristic first-person shooter series are just two of many titles to lose their multiplayer at the end of May.
Older Battlefield titles are among the large list affected by the GameSpy closure. However, EA intends to transfer the servers, allowing players to continue playing the older shooters. Crytek, however, has confirmed they will not do the same to the first two Crysis games. They said:
The single-player campaigns in both games are unaffected by this transition, and the multiplayer mode in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 versions of Crysis 2 remain playable.
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.
Crysis 3 is still available, thankfully. Crysis 4 needs to be released soon, we could use another entry in the first-person shooter franchise, especially on the next-gen consoles.
