Codemasters Announce Withdrawal of Services
Just a quick post to warn all players on the EU servers that Codemasters will be gradually withdrawing some of the services offered, in preparation for being reabsorbed into the Turbine fold, scheduled for June 1st. Please also note that those of us on the EU servers will not be receiving the new update, scheduled for 24th May, until after the change over. We personally anticipate that the EU servers will probably experience about a weeks downtime while this takes place, I hope it’s a day or two, and not a few weeks, but realistically we think expect a week.
Here is a list of the following services due to be withdrawn first:
Players will be unable to purchase or raise tickets for the following services on or after the dates shown:
Tuesday 24th May, 2011 9:00 AM (GMT+1)
World Character Transfer
Hacked Account Restart Programme
Monday 30th May, 2011 9:00 AM (GMT+1)
Any open requests or orders for these services at the time of their closing will continue to be processed normally.
Announcements will be made later on telling all Codemasters customers what procedure they will need for switching to a Turbine account, and we will keep you posted as soon as we can.
