MX VS ATV Reflex Servers Back Online Soon

MX VS ATV-FEATURED

The currently in development MX VS ATV Supercross spells good news for MX VS ATV Reflex. While a date has yet to be announced, it has been confirmed that Reflex’s servers will be back online soon.

At the time of THQ‘s closure, Reflex’s servers were taken down despite a large fan following. Cult following would be a better term as those fans flocked to forums to ask, beg and plead for Nordic Games to reinstate the servers and never stopped asking. It’s been over a year since THQ’s closure and tonight, Reflex fans have an answer. Ken George, Executive Producer of MX VS ATV Supercross, commented on the status of Reflex’s servers in a post on Nordic’s forums this evening. “We have to replace the network code in Reflex to get the servers back up and running. This work also translates to MvA Supercross, and once our network team finished the code for MvA Supercross, we’ll implement that new network code into Reflex and get the servers back up and running.”

The reincarnation of Reflex’s servers may be an unprecedented move in online gaming. Reflex was originally released in 2009. When the servers shut down a year ago, it looked like the end for Reflex online despite its following. After all, what incentive would Nordic have to revitalize a four year old game? Given that Nordic plans to release the next entry in the franchise this year, it did not seem likely they would want competition for their upcoming title. Fortunately for Reflex fans, that’s not the way Nordic sees it. “When sequels are released, they tend to increase sales of the older titles, and in this case, people playing Reflex again will help bring awareness to Supercross, so we definitely plan to get the Reflex servers back up.” Commented Mr. George on the Nordic forums.

MX VS ATV Supercross is expected to release some time in the first half of this year.
