The other day we told you about 2K Sports intent to shut down the servers for NBA 2K11 which we didn’t think was a great move considering all the issues they are having with the online content in NBA 2K12. Well wouldn’t you know it, it looks like 2K Sports has had a change of heart and decided not to shut down the NBA 2K11 servers as originally stated. The NBA 2K11 servers will now be operational until April 2012. This is great news for folks who had held off from making the change to NBA 2K12 because they didn’t like all the stuff that had to be held out of NBA 2K12’s online modes due to the massive code rewrite that 2K Sports did to online in NBA 2K12. Now you get a few more months of My Crew and other popular features from last year’s game.
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.
