Emanuel Maiberg of PC Gamer has noted that like the rumored shutdown of Games for Windows Live, its up to the publishers if feel its in their interest to develop a patch to switch servers or abandon the titles.

GameSpy is scheduled to be shutdown on May 31, 2014 and unless the publishers have switched servers the games will no longer have an online multiplayer feature.
