  2. Is it just TDU or they will shut down servers for the TDU 2 as well with this? Because I was just going to start playing it online, lol.

    It doesn't mention TDU2 and seeing that it's been on the market for only around 18 months I'd say it's unlikely TDU2 will be affected as well. :)

    Yeah just kill the best TDU ever made. Great stuff again Atari :thumbsdown: Can we host the servers ourselves?

    As Game dev of TDU Physics I feel a bit sad :(
    Atari is going down.
    Eden Games is going down.
    Atari is SOOO great to destruct good I.P. and make poor sequel :unsure:

    Made the good decision leaving that ship in 2008.

  6. That's it for the best TDU. It was great fun.
     
  7. @Bram Hengeveld Totally.
    I never actually played TDU but I know people who love it. Being able to host one's own server would be very useful.

    There's a guy on TDU-Central who owns a datacenter in Spain. He's asking about getting hold of Atari to take over the servers.. so there's still hope. Assuming Atari will actually respond.

    I don't think they will answer.
    The IP for main server is encrypted in data base, that would need to patch the game.
    This mean working on TDU 1 ... I doubt they will do it.

    Ha, well if work is required on their part then it's maybe unlikely. However if money is involved perhaps that could be an incentive? :)

    Servers are closed mate.

    Now... well we move on. It seems Atari, despite saying they had passed the idea on to the team, have decided to do nothing.

    I recommend Forza Horizon.
