GRID Multiplayer Shut Down On PS3, PC

Owners of the PC and PS3 versions of GRID will have to be content with racing against A.I. opponents. Codemasters confirmed today that multiplayer servers for both platforms have been shut down.

"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," says the announcement from Codemasters. "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 (known as Race Driver: GRID outside of North America) was released back in 2008. While players are no doubt upset that multiplayer has been discontinued, it's worth pointing out that publishers (namely EA) have shut down game servers far quicker with other titles.
