InnoGames is reporting that the development of their upcoming strategy game, Rising Generals, will be brought to a halt and the teams working on the game will be reassigned to Elvenar (recently entered closed beta) and to other mobile related projects.
Our First Look video of Rising Generals revealed some performance issues with the game and a pretty standard strategy formula where production of units was tied to a timer that could be bypassed with cold hard cash. While we gave the performance issues a bit of a pass due to the game being in beta, it was clear that the overall quality of the game might not have been that stellar.
The reason for the development cancellation is cited as, "InnoGames’ high standards in its products’ quality, which were not entirely met during the closed beta of the game. Player feedback during that phase supported the decision to discontinue the project."
Looks like it's back to Forge of Empires for those looking for some InnoGames strategy.
