EA announces dozens of games going offline due to GameSpy closure

Electronic Arts announced a sizable list of games that will go offline after June 30, as a result of the GameSpy online services closure. Though it still says it is investigating "community-supported options," no official solution is in place yet for games like Battlefield 2, Battlefield 1942, and various Command & Conquer games.

"Since GameSpy’s announcement, our teams have been working to evaluate options to keep services up and running," the company stated in an update (via GameSpot). "Unfortunately, due to technical challenges and concerns about the player experience, we do not have a solution at this time. Online services for EA games on the GameSpy platform will be closed down at the end of June."

Many of the most popular and still-active games are for PC, but the listings show GameSpy's servers were used for games across platforms like PlayStation 2, Wii, and DS. You can check out the full list to see all of the games being shut down.
