TRON 2.0 Gamespy Master Server Offline For Good?

January 20th, 2013 UPDATE: A fix for TRON 2.0 Multiplayer has been released. You will need the fix to play online.

After some good news (TRON 3 sequel moving forward) comes some bad news.

I just found out that Gamespy Technologies was sold by IGN to another company named Glu Mobile, a few months ago. Didn't even know about it, until now.

Well, that company has decided to drop support for a lot of older games that use Gamespy for multiplayer connectivity, some time in the week preceeding the date of this article. Hundreds of games are affected, and TRON 2.0 is one of them. Players of these older games are incensed as you might well imagine, bombarding the Facebook Gamespy page with lots of angry comments.

So, basically, you will no longer be able to find any servers for TRON 2.0 Multiplayer, from inside the game. We'll either have to wait it out and see if the new owners reverse their decision due to the uproar, or if we need to: come up with an alternative way to find servers.

Either way, TRON 2.0 Multiplayer is currently crippled. The LDSO servers that would normally be running on weekends, will remain offline for the time being because of the current situation.

Sad times.
