Stronghold 2 Multiplayer Shutdown

Recommended Posts

I would like to note that it is quite possible that they will come up with an alternative solution however it should be noted they have their hands full with the new Crusader game coming out so it probably isn't a priority. Felt it was important everyone should know so if I wasn't allowed to post here I'd like to apologise.

 

Many of you will have seen the news today that GameSpy Technologies have announced they will be shutting off their remaining servers on 31st May 2014. Their decision affects all games that use Gamespy for multiplayer matchmaking, which unfortunately includes Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends. As a result multiplayer mode (including LAN) in Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends will no longer work as of 31st May 2014.

 

We are currently looking at the feasibility of implementing an alternative multiplayer solution. The team is hard at work on Stronghold Crusader 2 and Stronghold Kingdoms at the moment, but we hope to be able to give you a status update later on in the year.

 

Please note that Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD are unaffected by this decision.

Oh dear, that's a shame. :( We'll have to certainly make use of the last two months of it. Nothing can last forever I suppose but hopefully they'll find a way soon enough after SHC2. Thanks for letting us know.

 

However, there are some positives, version 1.4.1 was only really downloaded because of multiplayer; you couldn't modify it much, and there were issues between versions. Maybe now people will go back to the Deluxe version and maps will not have the same issues that they do at the moment hen they only work fully on some versions.

No problem, you post where you feel it's appropriate. :)
