Test Drive Unlimited 2 comes to a screeching halt

, | Games

I was just kind of goofing on Test Drive Unlimited 2’s technical snags earlier, because they seemed like the sort of teething problems you’d expect from any MMO on launch week. I was still having a grand time driving around, collecting, exploring, racing, and becoming a more and more famous jerk-off among the jetsetting high-life reality TV celebrities of Ibiza and Hawaii getting cosmetic surgery and collecting clothes and buying houses I never used.

But then today happened. On the Friday after your game is released, no one on the Xbox 360 can play because the servers are down? And there’s no message explaining this? The opening screen just hangs? And the forums are taken offline at the same time?

Figure it out already, Atari.
