This petition is for Activision and/or Neversoft to restore the GHTunes servers or we are asking that Activision release a Title Update for the Games mentioned above that would make all players unlock the aforementioned achievements immediately upon logging onto the game. While most publishers and/or developers would have never considered such an action before, mostly due to the costly nature of issuing a new patch over Xbox Live, Microsoft revised their policies to make the issuing of Title Updates free.

The game-playing audience's inability to unlock these achievements may seem like an inconsequential matter; why would we care so much about a couple of dumb achievements? However, our ability to successfully unlock a game's achievements composes an absolutely essential part of the game-playing experience for many players in the achievement-related online communities, such as TrueAchievements and Xbox360Achievements. Now that Title Updates are free to distribute over Xbox Live, we feel that there is absolutely no reason for action on Activision's part to not be conducted concerning our inability to unlock these achievements, especially when no clear notice was given as to the GHTunes servers' closure.

If such a global action on the issue cannot be taken by Activision, Neversoft, Vicarious Visions, or Beenox for whatever reason, we ask that the stated parties provide some outlet for those concerned gamers to unlock the achievements on a case-to-case basis, such as was done when representatives from DICE helped players unlock the glitched "I am Bad Company" in Battlefield: Bad Company on a case-to-case basis.

 

Below are known ways to contact the parties involved.

Neversoft:

 In May 2014 it was reported that Neversoft had been merged with Call of Duty creators Infinity Ward to create what was internally referred to as a "super-studio".

Neversoft was officially made defunct on July 10, 2014, 20 years to the day of its founding.
