| EA Cancels F2P Command & Conquer - briefly|
|(hx) 06:09 PM EDT - Oct,29 2013 |
| Gamasutra reports that EA has shut down Victory Studios' free-to-play Command & Conquer title. The studio itself is also facing closure. In a statement posted to the game's official website, Victory Studios said the cancellation was due to poor reception to the game's alpha.
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.

|Weeding out rubbish early is a good thing for everyone.
They should do this more often though - their junk filter does not seem to be good enough.

|Actually the game didn't look that bad but figures they'd cancel it.|
