Command & Conquer
has been cancelled and EA has closed developer Victory Games. The cancellation comes via a post
on the game's site and the studio closure comes from EA in a statement to Game Informer
"This does mean that the Victory Games team will be disbanded. Wherever possible, we are working to help these talented people find other opportunities with EA."
The cancellation post says the multiplayer approach to Command & Conquer
was its downfall.
"Your feedback from the alpha trial is clear: We are not making the game you want to play," the post reads. "That is why, after much difficult deliberation, we have decided to cease production of this version of the game. Although we deeply respect the great work done by our talented team, ultimately it's about getting you the game you expect and deserve."
Victory and EA will refund all money spent in the alpha, expected to be handled over the next 10 days. EA say it is looking at ways to "get the game back on track." The blog post, attributed to Victory Studios, was not approved by the development team, Command & Conquer
