Do whatever you can Father EA, this one's deserving of the deep grave trench out in your backyard.

Glu Mobile bought Gamespy Technologies (the entity responsible for GameSpy multiplayer services) from IGN Entertainment in August 2012, and proceeded in December to raise integration costs and shut down servers for many older games, including the Star Wars: Battlefront series, Sniper Elite, Microsoft Flight Simulator X and Neverwinter Nights, with no warning to developers or consumers. GameSpy Technologies remained operational and did not make any announcements of an impending shutdown; the two GameSpy companies were separate entities and only related by name. Glu also shut down online multiplayer servers for several titles on the Nintendo DS and Wii, such as Mario Kart DS, Super Smash Bros Brawl, and Mario Kart Wii. Glu shut down the rest of Gamespy effective on May 31, 2014.

This and the Codemasters acquisition are to inflate their value and/or stave off interested parties. Last rumor I had heard around these parts was M$ had a near-site M&A company pushing a deal. The same group that got EA Play for Gamepass. Since then EA has been interested in seeking to not get sold for less than a certain undisclosed amount. Which is why M$ is going somewhere else most likely with their bags of cash.

that makes sense about codemasters, i didn't really see what ea would have wanted from them other than the Formula 1 license, its not like EA are the kind of company into adding a load of racing game series that are well regarded but aren't mega sellers into their portfolio.
