Crysis 1 and Crysis 2 Added to the List of Games Affected by GameSpy Shutdown
Crytek has affirmed that its popular first-person shooters Crysis 1 and Crysis 2 will lose their online multiplayer on May 31, 2014 along with GameSpy servers.
Earlier this month, it was announced that Glu will be Shutting Down GameSpy on May 31, 2014 and will cease to provide support for every game that depends on it for online connectivity.
The news comes directly from Crysis Forums and reads that single-player aspect of the game will remain unaffected by the transition (which is pretty obvious). However, the multiplayer mode of Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 will remain playable.
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.
The next portion of the statement is solely dedicated to the small community of users who enjoyed playing Crysis.
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.
