Well, we now know why EA decided to pull their recent announcement concerning the Command & Conquer closed beta, the publisher wasn't planning on a closed beta at all. Today on Command & Conquer's official site, a spokesperson for Victory Games released a blog post which announced the developer would "cease production of this version of the game".
The full blog post openly admits that based on player feedback during the alpha, the developers were "not making the game you want to play". Originally intended to be a sequel to Command and Conquer: Generals, Command & Conquer was the 4th C&C related title to be canceled in the last decade.
The news worsens as EA confirmed with Polygon earlier today that "the team at Victory Games will be disbanded". "Wherever possible, we are working to help these talented people find other opportunities within EA", said the EA Spokesperson.
This obviously spells trouble for the future of Command & Conquer as Victory Games was suppose to be the studio devoted to expanding the Command & Conquer series. While the blog post does say the team has "already begun looking at a number of alternatives to get the game back on track", those alternatives do not seem to include Victory Games.
