Online shutdown for GRID

Just three years after it hit retail Codemasters has shut down the online servers for Race Driver: Grid.

The move only relates to the PS3 and PC versions of the title. The Xbox 360 servers will continue to operate as normal.

"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," the company confirmed.

"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."

Unsuprisingly fans have reacted badly to the move on the Codemasters forums, with some calling for protests and others even for a boycott (or ‘boicott’) on all other games from the publisher.
