Via their forums, Codemasters has some not-so-pleasant news for the PS3 and PC fans of GRID out there.
Basically, support for online multiplayer in the PS3 and PC versions of GRID will now be suspended. As of this point, however, the Xbox 360 version will still be online. Here’s the official announcement that was posted:
“Hi all, I have an update for you all regarding GRID online multiplayer on the PS3 & PC.
After three years of service, 2008s Race Driver: GRID’s online play service has been discontinued for the PS3 and PC editions of the game. 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.”
