Capcom shifts online before Gamespy shutdown

Another day, another publisher discussing how the Gamespy shutdown will affect them. Today, it’s Capcom – and, honestly, there’s only a couple of games that’ll be affected.

Brelston broke the news via Capcom Unity:

We sincerely appreciate the dedication these games have seen over the years and hope you continue to enjoy them after the shutdown.

  • Lost Planet 3 (PC/PS3): Migration to a new service has already begun, so we’re not anticipating any online downtime. However, due to switching servers the leaderboards and current play stats will be reset. We’ll have more information about the reset soon, so please check back. (Note the X360 version is unaffected.)
  • Age of Booty (All versions): Unfortunately there are no plans to update or migrate this title to a new service. It’s been a great ride (2008/09-2014) and we thank everyone who sailed these seas. You can still play this title offline or grab friends for some LAN action, however.
  • Flock! (All Versions): Same as Age of Booty; there are no plans to migrate this title. You can still download and play the game, but be aware online features – such as the level editor sharing function – will no longer be active.
  • Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition: Already migrated and there are no issues.
  • Marvel vs Capcom Origins: Already migrated and there are no issues.

There are still some Capcom games that have not been detailed – Dead Rising 2 is an obvious one – but this will at least give some gamers some good news.

GameSpy is shutting down its online service on May 31st – publishers like EA have been seriously affected.
