EA cancels Command & Conquer, shuts Victory Games

EA has announced that the firm has cancelled production of free to play title, Command & Conquer along with closing Victory Games, the developers behind the project.

The long awaited RTS title, which was already in a playable alpha, was first announced back at the 2011 Video Games Awards as Command & Conquer: Generals 2, and had undergone a significant number of changes before the F2P mechanics were decided upon.  

Victory Games issued a statement on the C&C Website last night:

Thank you for your participation over the last few months in the Command & Conquer closed alpha test. It’s been much appreciated, and you’ve been instrumental in helping define what a new Command & Conquer experience should and shouldn’t be.

Part of being in a creative team is the understanding that not all of your choices are going to work out. In this case, we shifted the game away from campaign mode and built an economy-based, multiplayer experience. 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.

Over the next 10 days we will be refunding any and all money spent in the alpha. If you have a question about your refund, please contact help.ea.com.

We believe that Command & Conquer is a powerful franchise with huge potential and a great history, and we are determined to get the best game made as soon as possible. To that end, we have already begun looking at a number of alternatives to get the game back on track. We look forward to sharing more news about the franchise as it develops. Thank you again for your participation and support.

- Victory Games

For some bizarre reason I thought this was being developed by Bioware?
