EA Cancels Command & Conquer, Announces Closure of Victory Games

October 30, 2013

Electronic Arts have today announced that it will no longer be developing the upcoming free to play RTS revival of Command & Conquer, and have also confirmed that the games developer, Victory Games, will be disbanded.

The news comes via a statement on the official Command & Conquer website, which states the reason for cancellation – quality. Speaking specifically: “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.”

This variant of Command & Conquer started life as a sequel to 2002′s Command & Conquer Generals, announced way back in December 2011 as part of the Spike Video Game Awards. It was later re-branded as a non-specific Command & Conquer game, slated to be multiplayer only (before massive backlash provided a single player mode) and even announced to be episodic. Interestingly enough, this marks the second Command & Conquer game to be cancelled for “quality” reasons, EA had announced a first person shooter known as “Tiberium” back in 2008, which got cancelled later that year.

We here at New Game Plus wish the former developers at Victory Games the best of luck in their future endeavours.
