This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.

So. Halfway through April we learned that EA would attempt to support games affected by the closure of Gamespy like Battlefield 2, Bad Company 2 and Battlefield 2142 – a single thread of hope for dedicated gamers still playing those excellent games. Unfortunately, according to a new update posted by EA to their news feed, that thread is probably not connected to anything, and if you are clinging to it you are currently plummeting to despair.
As the update explains, EA teams have been working to find possible solutions to keep games running, but have not yet found a solution. And so for now EA games utilising the Gamespy platform will be closed down at the end of June.
They haven’t given up however, as the update goes on to say:
We know some of these games are still fan favorites, including Battlefield 2, Battlefield 1942, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and Command & Conquer games. We are still investigating community-supported options to preserve online functionality for these titles, such as multiplayer.
