    I forgot
    It was actually the 31st of May IIRC, and yeah the games that don't have dedicated servers and such were ended. Though EA did save a few of their older titles, most of the Battlefield games still work and stuff.

    They extended their period of shutdown to June 30, so far still don't know if they are dead or not.

    I thought they were dead since 2010. I haven't heard the word Gamespy since 2007.

    I remember tunnelling system link matches of Halo CE on Gamespy's servers pre xbox live. Good old days :')
