It seems as though the RTS series Command and Conquer is destined for a Free-to-Play title after-all. After EA’s latest major attempt at reviving the troubled series imploded before ever reaching open beta, the idea of a new legitimate C&C title -let alone another free one- seemed to have died with it. That is until [...]

No Tea left for Tea-Bagging: Offensive Combat Shuts Down

When Dusty Welch said in 2011 that his goal was to “dethrone the established leaders” with his new studio U4iA, it was easy to believe the former Activision employee and CoD developers offensive mentality toward reemerging in the FPS industry.
