The PC gaming community might be unanimous in their disdain for Games for Windows Live, but creators Microsoft aren't ready to let their online gaming service die off just yet.
In a statement sent to Game informer the company said that they "are continuing to support the Games for Windows Live service". Here's the statement in full:
"We are continuing to support the Games for Windows Live service. As previously announced, as part of the retirement of Microsoft Points the Xbox.com PC marketplace was closed. Although customers are unable to purchase new games from the marketplace or receive title updates, they can continue to enjoy previously purchased content by downloading them through the Games for Windows Live client as usual. We remain committed to investing in PC gaming in the years ahead, and look forward to sharing more in the future."
That statement was in response to rumours that GFWL would be shut down for good in July, after a mass exodus of titles looking to cross to other, less-despised platforms such as Valve's Steam.
Just recently Twisted Pixel Games - a studio owned by Microsoft, let's not forget - announced that its game Ms. Splosion Man would be moving over to Steamworks.
It might be time to let it go, guys.
