Frostbite-powered Command & Conquer cancelled by EA

I was waiting with anticipation of the upcoming Frostbite-powered Command & Conquer, but unfortunately Victory Games' free-to-play title has been scrapped by EA.

The new C&C game was featured at the recent GamesCom in an early alpha form, but feedback from players said that the developers "are not making the game you want to play." If you want to know more about why the C&C reboot was canned, you can read more about it here, but it looks like it was a result of the economy-based multiplayer experience which wasn't enjoyed by players of the closed alpha test.

 

EA said: "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."
