    You are thinking about two different GameSpy's here. The MP services company was before the gaming news site shut down recently, according to Wikipedia:

    GameSpy was acquired by IGN Entertainment in March 2004. GameSpy Technologies (the entity responsible for GameSpy multiplayer services) was then bought from IGN Entertainment by Glu Mobile in August 2012,[4] and proceeded in December to rise integration costs and shut down servers for many older games, including Star Wars: Battlefront, Sniper Elite and Neverwinter Nights,with no warning to developers or consumers, much to the outrage of communities of those games
