  • Subject: Crysis and Crysis 2 PC Multiplayer Modes Set to Shut Down

    Hi all,

    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.

    That's a shame. Crysis Wars was my first ever first person shooter. I will miss playing that game. :( Better reinstall it for a few more games before the servers go down. Really hope to see a re-release of Crysis Wars in a free to play model in the future.

    To think that Crysis 2, a game that came out in the same year as Battlefield 3 (2011) and sold 2.1 Million copies in the Origin Humble Bundle will cease to have online Multiplayer functionality on PC but will on console is pretty sad and extremely disappointing, to say the least. You would think that a reasonable compromise would be to port over the game from GameSpy but at the cost of a few years of Multiplayer support, this for me just re-establishes my long held opinion about EA and something tells me that it won't be long until they are again voted the worst company in America.

    Since this had now been announced the store listings for Crysis and Crysis 2 Maximum Edition need to be updated as it is now official that EA are selling condemned Multiplayer games and are selling features to users that at the end of next month they won't be able to deliver on. Let’s hope that third party software can do something to restore some functionality but I'm very doubtful.

    This is a very sad and disappointing moment for me; Crysis 2 was my first modern FPS and the only one I have loved since. I love Crysis 2 so much that I recreated a part of my school for a multiplayer map, a map which I have still been working on till this day and have been preparing to release for the past week in the wake of the news that Gamespy is shutting down.

    Crysis 2 is a great game, and without it my life would probably not be the same, I know how it sounds but Crysis 2 was a catalyst for many things in my life today and it hurts to see it go. I have had a fantastic time playing, the Crysis community is one of the best around and I have got to know many different people because of this game. We better make the best out of what we still have left and enjoy it while it lasts.

    Oh God! I am VERY disappointed, indeed. Crysis 1 was my first FPS game, and Crysis 2 was the first FPS game, where I played multiplayer. Yes, it has a lot of bugs, glitches, but hey, it's one of the best games that I've ever played. Crysis Wars is a cool game, too. I had a lot of fun, and Power Struggle is a very creative game mode. Crysis 1's singleplayer campaign was very enjoyable. I played it over and over and over again.

    I will never forget this game. Never. One of the best series ever! Get better soon!

    R.I.P Crysis!

    Well, direct IP access is still possible.
    I'm pissed. Had a great great evening with friends, come home and now this.
    I would have got freaking Origin just to continue playing Crysis Wars without it.
    Let's see how the inner circle will react.

    Guys I don't believe this! I play crysis2 since 2 years, and I think it has the best engine in therms of aim and movement.
    To the crytek staff: remember this, this game is amazing! you created a jewel but you miss in support to your customers for not creating an anticheat (but we can fix that with admins on servers), for not answering on forum and finally want to close down. We are still there playing!!

    To you guys
    We can launch a petition! I checked on avaaz and they don't specify that it must be an humanitarian cause.

    War_spirit would you like to do it in english? My english is not the best, I'm happy to translate it in italian. Are there other volunteers?

    We must organize ourselves guys.

    Thinking what to ask: is principally Crytek to continue the multiplayer access from the gamepanel.
    Do I miss something important? I don't even know if the shut down is legal, as we payed for the single and multiplayer probably we cud claim a refund. But the point is oneother.

    I have no idea why crytek needs gamespy and what is the function of it. If the server list cud just be hosted in some other way, but it must be publicly accessible as it is now.


    Btw I also just opened a server for a six mounth time it's called "the DLC CONNECTION".


    I AM WORKING TO MAKE A PETITION, on the crysis2 forum check the topic
