Electronic Arts has canceled its free-to-play Command & Conquer game, according to a post on the game’s website. EA has also confirmed to Polygon that the Victory Games team will be disbanded, although the company is looking to find the employees other opportunities within EA.
“Part of being in a creative team is the understanding that not all of your choices are going to work out,” the statement on the website reads, in part. “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.”
“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.”
The post also states that any money spent in the Command & Conquer alpha will be refunded over the next 10 days.
