Codemasters are joining the ranks of the developers leaving Games for Windows LIVE behind, announcing on Twitter that they were currently working on removing GFWL integration from DiRT 3.

“We are working on it but it may not be until the new year,” said the company’s official account on Monday.

Games like Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City have already left the service behind, ahead of its shutdown in July 2014.

Codies putting work into a game older than 1 month??? No way!



lol, was just thinking the same thing…


Now they need to remove it from their other titles that have it.

@Codemasters @TweetingTommy32 thank you guys. This is what separates a great dev from a mediocre one

What a stupid f***. Codies are terrible at after sales support… Anywho… they are still selling Dirt 1 and 2 and whatever other games that use GFWL. Either they lose profits and remove them forever, or they get 1 blind monkey to program out GFWL and continue on for glory. Thus, the downfall of digital games (not on steamworks)



Me too.


Keep em coming boys! Though it looks like there are a ton of other Codemasters games that are yet to be confirmed/denied to be removing GFWL.


Now if only codemasters can remove the abhorrent overlay of BUY OUR DLC integrated throughout dirt 3, so disgusting – this isn’t a free to play game you idiots, i ALREADY GAVE YOU MY MONEY.


I didn’t even know GFWL was still a “thing” per say.


The 1st game i got that used GFWL was GTA4, and i instantly hated the whole thing (GFWL that is)….but recently I got Street Fighter X Tekken on steam yet it still required GFWL installed….(which Im still dirty about)

When will this thing die and go away already? its like windows vista, no one wants it, no one wants to deal with it, just please let it die…


I recently decomissioned my ‘GFWL’ category in my Steam Library… some 30+ games that I can no longer suck my beloved gamerscore from.

Goodbye, dear friend, I will miss you :’(
