Star Wars: Battlefront II Gets GameSpy Reprieve
Popular title should have no problems after May 31st...

As we hurtle towards May 31st and the closure of the GameSpy servers, it's becoming increasingly clear to gamers which titles are going to be adversely affected - and there's no shortage of them - but one game that's managed to avoid running into major issues is Star Wars: Battlefront II.

Although the game does actually use GameSpy servers, uses can switch over to GameRanger instead, with no adverse affects, and it's not foreseen that the closeure of GameSpy will cause any issues with the title according to GameRanger's Scott Kevill (although he probably would say that).

In a thread about the subject over on Reddit, Kevill shed some light on the situation, saying:

People are already playing it just fine on GameRanger, and will continue to after May 31. I've already simulated it with GameSpy blocked and cut-off.

Star Wars: Battlefront II was originally released back in November of 2005, and despite its age the title still has an active online community. Electronic Arts yesterday confirmed that it was working on a new version of the game, which it'll showcase at E3 next month.
