NBA 2K11 Servers To Remain Running Until 2012

NBA 2K11 Servers To Remain Running Until 2012

2K Sports postpone planned server closure

Written by Andrew Ogley (Nexus Grunt) on 11 November 11 at 11:17 | Credit to Hoffman

Recently we reported that 2K Sports had announced that would be closing down their servers for their http://www.trueachievements.com/NBA-2K11-xbox-360.htm title.

However, recently a short post has quietly appeared on the 2K Sports news page confirming a reversal in this decision and announcing that the servers would be remain available until April, 2012.

It is worth making a note of the final paragraph in the statement. With the 2K10 and earlier titles, a number of features on Xbox LIVE will still be available, including match making and leaderboards. This would imply that those related online achievements should still be attainable, but that has not been confirmed at this time.

As outlined in the NBA 2K11 manual, online multiplayer support for NBA 2K11 was scheduled to be turned off in November 2011, but 2K Sports has decided to leave servers for NBA 2K11 on until April, 2012.

Here is the list of games that are currently functional as of 12/1/2011:

NBA 2K12 and NBA 2K11 / MLB 2K11
NHL 2K11 (Wii), NHL 2K10 (360/PS3)
All Last Edition Titles (Top Spin 4, BIGS 2, etc.)
All Series With No Revision - NFL 2K5, APF 2K8, CH 2K8

For the discontinued 2K10 and prior 360 titles, match making and leaderboards on LIVE will still be available, but the additional features we offer (leagues, sports ticker, lobbies) will not be available.
If you're a fan of the 2K Sports titles listed, it might be worth trying to get those online achievements wrapped up before the closure in April just to be certain.

or maybe your right and EA just truly dont give a crap about complaints they receive

hmm the 2nd sounds more likely so ur probably correct

I just don't like it when companies shut down their servers, period. There are plenty of old ass games that are still able to be played online.

2k and ea release a hugh number of popular titles per year that require servers, they shut the old ones down to open up more space for the new ones and get you off the old ones...

I'm tired of server shutdowns and gamers making excuses for them. If a company can't keep a game servers open (mainly sports titles) because of a 'server space', maybe they shouldn't release the same exact game every year. We really don't need to pay 60$ every year for a sports game, that is almost the exact same as the one that came the year before it, just to have it servers shut down within months.


Just make a good sports game and keep updating it's rosters.

I remember when Sega Sports became 2K Sports and almost toppled Madden, and now they're on their way back to the void.

Why are they so eager to shut down the servers on their only remaining successful sports title? With how much losing they're doing to EA this generation you'd think they'd stop trying to follow in their footsteps.
