In case you didn't know, IGN sold GameSpy to Glu Mobile earlier this year.

Well, according to some reports, the new owner has been shutting down several game multiplayer servers!

These are the affected games:

• Sniper Elite,
• Neverwinter Nights 1 & 2,
• Microsoft Flight Simulator X,
• Hidden and Dangerous 2,
• SWAT 4,
• Wings of War,
• Star Wars: Battlefront.

According to Rebellion, maker of Sniper Elite, the decision was made without its input and it has little means of rectifying the situation. "We have been talking to [Glu Mobile/GameSpy] since to try and get the servers turned back on," said the developer in an official statement. "We have been informed that in order to do so would cost us tens of thousands of pounds a year - far in excess of how much we were paying previously." So the servers will stay off.

GameSpy has yet to comment on the closures, beyond saying - in the case of Star Wars: Battlefront - that, as LucasArts was no longer supporting the title "we're obligated to disable the service per our Agreement with them." However a look at GameSpy's Facebook page shows a lot of disgruntled gamers are out there. They really don't understand what's going on, and want their games back.

GLU Mobile hasn't given an official statement about this, but things definitely don't look good for GameSpy.

What do you think about this?
