You may have heard that GameSpy is to shut off all of their services later this year,. Well PC gamers have to say goodbye to the multiplayer offerings of Crysis and Crysis 2.
Crytek announced the following in regards to Crysis and Crysis 2:
There has been a bit of discussion surrounding the ceasing of operations at Gamespy, and we wanted to take the opportunity to clear the air a bit as it were, by providing some informaiton on the whole topic;
As of May 31 this year, the multiplayer modes in Crysis and Crysis 2 for PC will no longer be playable. The conclusion of online multiplayer support comes as a result of GameSpy Technology shutting down all their hosting services. GameSpy have been providing multiplayer functionality for Crysis and Crysis 2 since they launched. 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.
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.
If you own the PC version of Crysis and/or Crysis 2, you better get online now before their multiplayer features are gone forever…
