The death of GameSpy was a long time coming but unfortunately the demise has called into question the ability to continue to play multiplayer matches on a long list of legacy games such as Civilization 4.  A list of older 2K games were released, whose fate was undetermined until now when it was announced that Borderlands and Civ3 and 4 will be migrated to Steamworks to allow continued multiplayer support.  At the end of May we will see these games go offline, hopefully for a very short time, as they are migrated.  Follow the link to 2K support on Hexus for the list of games which will not be saved.

"Beginning May 31, 2014, Borderlands 1 and select tiles from the Civilization catalogs will temporarily go offline while service is transitioned to Steamworks. During the transition, players will experience interruption of several features, including online play, matchmaking and voiceover Internet protocol (VOIP). Players will not experience interruptions to offline play."
