Codemasters executive Ian Webster said in a statement:
After three years of service, 2008’s Race Driver: GRID’s online play service has been discontinued for the PS3 and PC editions of the game. This follows the decision by a third party provider to decline the offer of an extended contract to continue online play on these platforms. Race Driver: GRID for Xbox 360 is not affected. We thank fans for their support and apologise to those affected by the end of this service.
It’s been three years since GRID was released and I don’t see anyone affected by this decision. There has been so many good racing games off late. If you are the one affected, shift to Shift 2 Unleashed on PC and Gran Turismo 5 on Playstation 3. Then there is also DiRT 3 on all platforms.
