    You are thinking about two different GameSpy's here. The MP services company was before GameSpy.com 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
    Here is a Gamespy.com article about the matter.

    It's a terrible news that CEO of LGP probably is spending more time on developing and publishing games as DarkArts Studios instead porting games to Linux as LGP:
