Halo: Combat Evolved Multiplayer Now Playable Through GameRanger

By   /   May 1, 2014

GameSpy shutting down on May 31 spells bad news for those titles that rely on the online matchmaking client for their multiplayer mode. Once GameSpy is no more, these titles will either have to opt for an alternative or cease to exist as a multiplayer game.

Some of the affected titles are being shifted to Steamworks while other developers are working for alternative solutions. In the case of Halo: Combat Evolved, the game is going to be still playable online thanks to GameRanger, a service that provides a home for games without server support.

GameRanger is free to download and not only supports Halo: Combat Evolved, but also Halo: Combat Evolved Demo and Halo: Custom Edition. The company has also jumped in to save GRID and Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

Previously publishers EA, 2K, Activision, Epic Games, Capcom and Bohemia Interactive have all announced that some or all of their games will survive without the need for GameSpy in some way or another.

In March of this year, GameRanger announced to have had crossed five million registered members.
