Victory Games has announced that the Frostbite 3-powered free to play Command & Conquer has been cancelled. The blog post stated that, “Your feedback from the alpha trial is clear: We are not making the game you want to play. 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.”
Those who participated in the closed alpha will be refunded. As of now, the plan is seemingly to use what’s already been created for another Command & Conquer. However, an EA spokesperson told Polygon the development team has been disbanded. “The team at Victory Games will be disbanded. Wherever possible, we are working to help these talented people find other opportunities within EA.”
It’s a real shame, especially since Victory Games was adamant to go back to what made the C&C franchise so awesome. What are your thoughts on this recent development?
