The guys over at The Blue Entertainment are planning on reviving Battlefield 2.
In the light of gamespy shutting down, a project of keeping Battlefield 2 alive has started.
Here's what they are planning (taken from their website):
To bypass the death of Gamespy servers and offer a patch to continue service of Battlefield 2 and allow players to login, browse servers and more. We will be redoing the BFHQ Stats system and plan on releasing an unofficial update to fix any issues left over from the 1.5 update from 2009.
Who we are:
Blue Entertainment. We've been friends with many big modding groups and communities in BF2 ever since the start. We are Battlefield veterans and hate to see the game die.
What is planned:
- Redo BFHQ Stats
- Patch issues left over from the last BF2 Update
- Add high quality community maps as default maps
- And more!
