IGNís online gaming technology platform GameSpy has announced a licensing deal to incorporate its multiplayer technology into Crysis, the upcoming sci-fi first-person shooter from Crytek.

Under the terms of the agreement, in addition to using GameSpy's technology for online gaming, Crytek will also utilize it for community integration and beta testing.

GameSpy technologies to be included in Crysis include the "Comrade" in-game middleware, which adds instant messaging, friend rosters and matchmaking capabilities; "Sake," which allows Crytek to store player profiles and stats online, and "ATLAS," which enables the creation of a stat system for competitions in-game and on the Crysis Web site.

GameSpy has also recently announced that it has joined Epic's Integrated Partners Program to make the company's suite of online technology available to all Unreal Engine 3 licensees to enable seamless PC and PlayStation 3 interoperability.

ďBy utilizing the beta test program and latest GameSpy technologies, we have been able to provide a complete solution in developing a multiplayer experience that meets our high standard of excellence," said Avni Yerli, Crysis managing director.

I used to be all for this Live! on windows crap, but after seeing how it doesn't actually work... Yeah I'm kinda glad to see games not using.

I'm guessing it's going to be similar to Battlefield's interface/functionality. Supposedly it will also use punkbuster.

I don't care much for Gamespy or the Live service but at least Live is crossplatform and is supposed to work between the two gaming platforms I use.I have yet to try it out from the PC side.I will be interested to see how it works with Bioshock eventhough no multiplayer will be involved.

But it does work... As long as you don't want to play online.
