EA Cancels Command & Conquer And Shuts Down Victory Studios
Victory Studios, the game studio behind what was to be the upcoming free-to-play Command & Conquer game, has been closed along with the cancellation of said game. It would seem that after feedback from the game’s alpha, gamers were underwhelmed by what was on offer.
In a letter available on the Command & Conquer website, Victory Studios goes on to say that “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.” They also went on to mention that alpha users who spent money during the alpha’s availability will be refunded over the course of the next 10 days.
While I personally had no interest in this particular Command & Conquer game, I am disappointed to hear of its cancellation but more so for the closure of Victory Studios and the negative effects that this will have on its staff. What do you guys think? Disappointed for the game’s cancellation? Dislike free-to-play games? Let us know in the comments!
