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.

InnoGames agrees.

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.

    Innogames may create some fun games but their customer service is absolutely terrible. For starters, they let their players also be moderators, allowing for a serious conflict of interest. Keep in mind that they also support all decisions made by these moderators, which include decisions to ban other players, from not only the forums, but the game as well. They say you can escalate any issues beyond the moderators but its not clearly defined at all. In fact, the most obvious link to try to do this only sends you to the “Community Manager”, which is just the highest level moderator. In my own case, when dealing with them they even decided to promote the moderator who mistreated me and even broke their own rules, he is now a “Co-Community Manager”.

    I would suggest that if you play any of their games be sure to remain a free-player and don’t bother trying to report any issues to them. At least, if you do, don’t get any hopes up of getting any kind of good customer service!

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
