    Guess I won't be starting Shift anytime soon.
    Be honest - you weren't planning on it anyway. wink
    Honestly, I was waiting until I was done some other stuff and I bought the DLC BEFORE I started this game.dance
    Well, if you have any other future projects I would suggest buying the DLC now instead of waiting until it's too late.

    The DLC has been delisted, sadly.

    As I mentioned in another post - I always get a laugh at the panic of people when these servers close. It's not like you had 10-15 years to play it already headspin. Not only that, but every NFS being delisted along with the DLC has been on sale for over a week. Be honest, you were never getting around to it, you just love to complain.
    There has always been loads of games constantly being released to take up our time, but now with the new consoles releases are slowing down, and the games are not as good as these older ones, so yes will be getting around to it.

    The only game on Series X is the Medium, and on PS5 Returnal was released broken and told not play it until it had been fixed!

    New games are a joke, but old games even rubbish games are looking more fun and enjoyable than what we are getting now

    Halo was delisted suddenly, now boycotting Halo Infite

    Now to boycott Need for Speed games.

    Time not playing all the new games gives more time to catch up on the backlog.
    You're like a toddler throwing all your toys out of the box in a tantrum. Good luck with your boycott, I'm sure you'll certainly put a dent into the pockets of these publishers.
    You do realize that not everyone has the money to buy DLC when it comes out, correct? Especially right now, with money being tight for a lot of people. Things get delisted, but you sound like you're just trying to have a one-man gloat fest.

    Doubt they're gonna bring back the DLCs even for a day. I should have bought them earlier, but oh well.

    Best get started on Undercover, just hope the servers are working properly.

    Well with racing games especially you always take risk of not downloadinh DLC in time and completing achievements in time. Licensing issues are the main reason for DLC disappearing without any warning.

    Seems like in reality the servers for Shift 2 atleast stopped working when 2021 started, seems oddly "convenient" considering the game turned 10 years old in March.

    I completed original Shift MP and DLC online achievements year before last and was supposed to do Shift 2 as well but other things/games got in the way

    Its impossible to finish everything you care about in time that why early warnings and notices are required !!!
    There is no impossible achievement if you put all your skills on it !!!

    I know and most publisher do give early warning but unfortunately some just dont care and will not give any warnigs at all. Im in the same boat that I try to finish all games in my library but there is only so much time and way too many games in my backlog as well. Thats why I try to go the games in order from oldest to newest but I also dont want to do MP boosting/achievements all the time either.

    They didn't even bother to fix the Urban Legend achievement in Carbon and it's been what? Almost 15 years? People have been begging for so long. Says everything about EA as a company lol.

    According to a chat a had with Mohit on EA Support, this is a response I got back after asking if the content would be put back in the store, since it’s still available in the PlayStation store. I specifically asked if the Italian Pack for The Run would be added back, then changed my question to all the content that was delisted today, so I guess this is good news?

    “I request you to wait for some time now as the respective expansion pack will be available on the XBOX store.”
    “Yes, I meant that only, please wait for some time as our team is working to re-list the content.”
    From a chat I had today with Vareesha, requesting an update on this issue. This is her response:

    "Since, it is being available on PS4 and taken away from Xbox. Means this is completely being managed by Xbox what content to put or what to take off from their Xbox store."

    So for Carbon, there's no hope of unlocking the one unobtainable achievement?

    I have a PlayStation 3 and I checked if the DLCs are available in PS Store and they are. All of them, actually. You can even buy the digital complete edition of Shift 2 Unleashed (Base Game + 2 DLCs + Every Car/Track unlocked). So I guess it's indeed a problem on the Microsoft's side, not EA's. Weird.

    I’m all for the DLC being relisted but what about the servers that are already not working? Seems that should be fixed first.

    Does anybody have any EA contacts? These servers should run through the end of August, per the official announcement. They should at the very least honor that.
