    GameSpy's new owner Glu Mobile has shut down services for several 'old' PC games, leaving players in the dark...

    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.

    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?
