GRID online multiplayer for PS3 and PC discontinued

Friday, 17th June 2011 14:09 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Codemasters has announced that online multiplayer for the PS3 and PC versions of GRID: Race Driver has been discontinued after three years.

The Xbox 360 version remains unaffected, however. Just the keyboard-mouse and Triple has been affected.

“After three years of service, 2008’s Race Driver: GRID’s online play service has been discontinued for the PS3 and PC editions of the game,” said Codies community boss Ian Webster.

“This follows the decision by a third party provider to decline the offer of an extended contract to continue online play on these platforms. Race Driver: GRID for Xbox 360 is not affected. We thank fans for their support and apologise to those affected by the end of this service.”

GRID launched in 2008 for 360, PC and PS3. GRID 2 is on its way for a 2012 launch.

    Little bit stupid they should wait for GRID 2 but probably no one play it.

    That’s a bit shoddy – really don’t care that the third party has declined shit, it’s Codemasters responsibility to maintain this for a reasonable amount of time.

    ^ Probably because they had to run their own servers on PS3 & PC.

    This is why you pay for Xbox Live.

    @6 – Xbox Live (and consoles in general) is mostly peer-to-peer, meaning a player hosts the match.
