We have previously offered Beaconpush in two editions - cloud and on-site. The latter has been packaged software to be housed inside your data center, primarily offered for larger installations or where privacy has been a concern.
While On-Site edition has proven itself to be stable and reliable technology, we’ve decided to end our offering of this edition due to shortage in demand. If you’re a user of On-Site, you’ll be contacted through e-mail with more details.
Worth mentioning also is that our Cloud service was closed September 1 as communicated since February. But rather than abruptly pulling the plug, we want to ensure a smooth transition for all of our users that have trusted us through the years. We advise you to set up or move to another similar service. Do note that Cloud edition is no longer officially supported. If you have any questions what this means for you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
ESN acquired by EA
The company behind Beaconpush, ESN, has been acquired by Electronic Arts (EA).
Already four years ago during the first steps of the development of Battlefield 3 DICE (an EA studio) and ESN had a common vision of how social and web centric gaming would change the business. Since then we’ve worked close together and this deal was the next natural step.
The next step for us is to move forward on all the platforms which Battlefield is released on, focusing on a deeper integration between the actual game and the social interfaces which makes the game even more engaging when playing together with friends.
For more details and what this means, see the ESN web site.
