Borderlands Servers for the PS3 Go Offline From 31st May


Borderlands 2 was one of the most played games of 2013 and has won multiple awards but sadly all good things come to an end. GameSpy has provided and hosted multiplayer services for a variety of video games and in 2012, GameSpy was purchased and people started to wonder what impact that would have on the games which use the GameSpy online servers.

From 31st May, players will not be able to connect to the online servers of the games which had GameSpy servers. Borderlands 2 publisher 2K Games are one of many victims of this dilemma and are greatly effected by it. Fans will not be able to play Borderlands 2 online with other friends. Another 2K game which will be effected by the GameSpy termination is 2K Games’ Civilization Revolution. So online services for Borderlands and Civilization Revolution on the PS3 will be shutting down beginning May 31. But all hope is not lost, 2K Games are trying to migrate these two titles to another online servers service.


The PS3 owners aren’t as lucky as the PC users. The PC users have a fxr shorter delay in the server migration so the servers for Borderlands and Civilization on the PC, will shut down temporarily until 2K Games online servers shift to Valve’s Steamworks but players will be able to play the game offline for the time it takes 2K to migrate servers. Meanwhile you can check out our comparison of Borderlands Vita, which is just as good as the PS3 version.

    It is only the first Borderlands that is being shut down. Borderlands 2 still has plenty of online life ahead of it.
