EA to Give Command & Conquer to New Developer

A few weeks back, EA made the official announcement that they were cancelling production being made on the Command and Conquer reboot, citing the fact that, based on the alpha tested trials, they felt they weren’t making the game fans wanted.  Beyond that, they even went so far as to completely shut down the EA Victory studio, which had been established specifically for the purpose of creating the next Command and Conquer game.  But now, thanks to some digging from Blue’s News and a statement released by EA shortly after the cancellation and closure, it looks to be a bit more of a complicated situation.

Put it plainly, from the looks of it, EA cancelled the game likely with the hopes of handing the franchise off to another developer.  In a statement made by EA to beta testers shortly after the cancellation, their continued intentions with the future of the franchise are made clear.  “For those of you who bought The C&C Ultimate Collection, your early access beta will be honored once production of this title resumes under a new studio,” the statement says.  “We would like to thank you for your time and interest in Command & Conquer, and we look forward to sharing the news with you when production resumes on this title in the future.”

So what exactly this means exactly for the franchise is uncertain.  While no official information has been given, details definitely point toward EA looking elsewhere for somewhere else to pick up the project.  It’s unfortunate for the workers of EA Victory in particular, and while it’s clear that they and EA were struggling to develop a satisfying game to please the tested users, it’s hard not to sympathize with the workers who got laid off in this process – even if there was a communications breakdown somewhere within EA, resulting in the decisions being made by different folk that never crossed path.  On the other hand, one can only hope that whatever new developer is given the task will be up to be creating a satisfying new experience for the franchise.
