GameSpy shutdown at any time now

Post by PÕQ~Technut on Sun Jun 01, 2014 12:55 pm

Just a reminder that GameSpy could shut down at any time now.

Those of us who have updated to 1.10 have nothing to worry about, but the rest of the community is going to get a shock when it happens. Please encourage them to update to 1.10 as soon as possible to reduce the size of the mob that will panic when it actually happens. Thanks.

GameSpy will continue until 30 June 2014 or at least for EA games

I assume you're referring to this part:
Online services for EA games on the GameSpy platform will be closed down at the end of June.
I don't know what arrangements EA made for an extra month on GameSpy. I'm guessing it involved money. I suppose it's possible that GameSpy will allow other games to continue for an extra month as well (for free? hardly fair to EA), but we have no assurances of that.

At least we have our alternate Lobby service up and running so we're ready for anything now.

I have emailed glu (owners of GameSpy) to try to get a firm date for the shutdown of GameSpy.  I'll post any answer I get here.

Finally got a non-answer.

We are sorry but we are unable to make any statements regarding Gamespy at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Thanks for nothing, Glu. Just as useless as GameSpy.

Bump to remind you that the GameSpy Master Server could be shut down at any time now. There is a possibility that June is the last month (assuming that EA Games only arranged for 1 extra month).

Update to 1.10 to be ready!

Version 1.10 uses the new Master Server which was coded by Btcc22 and is hosted by Bungie. It has been running strong for over a month now (well done!) with many players and servers using it every day, so don't hesitate to switch over.

thank you for your help 

but now i have this questions

It has passed one month since they announced that GAMESPY would close its doors but I see that there are still many servers using version 1.09 and I wonder if we have to stay with version 1.09 or the new version 1.10 or what will happen to gamespy since with this new updates so many people was removed the game as before over 3000 people played on servers and now barely 1000 people play with this new version of Halo

we must change or keep some version of Halo?

GAMESPY really will shutdown or not and when?


why there are fewer players on the servers now with this new version of Halo?

The GameSpy master server is still up. And I have no idea what their plans are since they haven't stuck to what they publicly announced and they won't say what their new plans are.

This unpredictable situation with GameSpy has complicated things. If GameSpy had shut down when they said they were going to, we would all be on 1.10 by now. But instead we are split across versions and master servers.

Unfortunately many players are still using old warez/hacked versions of Halo that did not automatically get updated to 1.10 like the legit copies did. Those players probably won't update to 1.10 until GameSpy actually does shut down (which breaks the Lobby in their old version).

If you have updated to the 1.10 Halo client I suggest you install HAC 2. It will help you to see all the players and servers that are available on the new Master Server (by removing the version filtering that hides some of them).

And when the GameSpy server finally does shut down, the remaining servers and players will discover their Halo is broken and realize that they MUST update and join the rest of us on 1.10.

Ah fair enough, I did have a feeling the person telling me the GameSpy master server is down was just assuming that's the case based on the previous proposed closedown date of June 31st. xD

Thanks Technut. Smile

GameSpy finally shut down today?  Looking into it.

Edit: Yes... it appears GameSpy has shut down as of July 26, 2014.
