EA has said that it is "investigating community-supported options to preserve online functionality" in titles affected by GameSpy's imminent server closure, but that "significant technical hurdles" mean those affected may be forced offline forever.

In an update on its official blog, EA said that its teams had been "working to evaluate options to keep services up and running" following GameSpy's announcement, but "due to technical challenges and concerns about the player experience, we do not have a solution at this time. Online services for EA games on the GameSpy platform will be closed down at the end of June.

"We know some of these games are still fan favorites, including Battlefield 2, Battlefield 1942, Medal of Honor: Allied Assault and Command & Conquer games. We are still investigating community-supported options to preserve online functionality for these titles, such as multiplayer. Significant technical hurdles remain, and at this time we don’t have anything to announce."

Unless a solution can be found, up to 50 EA titles will lose their multiplayer functionality next month. The full list of titles impacted can be found here.

Which translated means: We don't give a crap what you think! We don't want our games modded anymore and we think digital is the way of the future because it is much easier for us to control what happens to the game.

Gotta love the Tom Wheeler of video games. :D
