No matter what business model it falls under, one thing is certain: We could all do with a little bit more Command and Conquer in our lives. EA and Victory Games were developing just such a new entry in the franchise, before that studio got canned and the game cancelled. But it may not be as dead as previously thought.
According to a recent EA support page post via Rock Paper Shotgun, it looks like a new studio will be picking up the free to play reboot from the now defunct Victory Games. The post explained that EA would refund any cash spent in the alpha version and that:
For those of you who bought The C&C Ultimate Collection, your early access to the beta will be honored once production of this title resumes under a new studio. 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.
Some good news not related to a console then. From my E3 time with the game, it was clear to me that anyone who had a love for the CnC Generals games, would dig this new iteration. Hopefully this time, EA can keep things on a steady track.
