That's right, Electronic Arts has made the decision to cease production of its free-to-play Command & Conquer attempt according to a post on the games official website.
The development team at Victory Games has also been disbanded. An EA spokesperson recently said that "The team at Victory Games will be disbanded. Wherever possible, we are working to help these talented people find other opportunities within EA."
You'll find the full statement from the Command & Conquer website below:
Thank you for your participation over the last few months in the Command & Conquer closed alpha test. Itís been much appreciated, and youíve been instrumental in helping define what a new Command & Conquer experience should and shouldnít 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 itís 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 Studios"
