From the Firefly website:

"Stronghold 2 & Legends Multiplayer
Friday, 04 April 2014


Many of you will have seen the news today that GameSpy Technologies have announced they will be shutting off their remaining servers on 31st May 2014. Their decision affects all games that use Gamespy for multiplayer matchmaking, which unfortunately includes Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends. As a result multiplayer mode (including LAN) in Stronghold 2 and Stronghold Legends will no longer work as of 31st May 2014.

We are currently looking at the feasibility of implementing an alternative multiplayer solution. The team is hard at work on Stronghold Crusader 2 and Stronghold Kingdoms at the moment, but we hope to be able to give you a status update later on in the year.

Please note that Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD are unaffected by this decision. "

Rumor online is Gamespy servers will be up through the end of June.

I have only now read this and had to make sure for myself. I have never been through such an emotional time in my life ever. Stronghold 2 is my favourite SH ever ever ever, and now to find this out, I'm genuinely upset.
