Yeah that would make sense why they shut the servers off it really sucks because this was a game just put out at the wrong time. It had multiplayer down but it came out when Halo 3 did literally so it never got the attention it garnered. If it had launched now it wouldn’t have received so much flak.

Well except that it had nothing to do with Shadowrun.  I actually liked playing it as long as I didn't think about what they called it.

Do I remember correctly that multiplayer was online only?

I believe so yes.

Nerd Slayer did a "Death of a Game" video on it.

While not Multiplayer, might I suggest people that haven't tried Shadowrun:  Returns, Shadowrun:  Dragonfall, and Shadowrun:  Hong Kong give those a shot.  They're all on Steam, and are by Harebrained Schemes, who licensed the video games from Microsoft.

Microsoft owns the rights to Shadowrun as a video game.  Topps owns the rights to Shadowrun as a Tabletop game (and CGL licenses it from them.).

If you're into Retro Gaming, there is also the SNES and Sega Genesis Shadowrun games.

And for my next trick, anvils!
