Victory Games Begins Packing Up

These are some sad and disappointing photos here. Community manager Eric Krause shared these on Facebook today - photos of the big cleanup and packing-up of all the gear at the Victory Games studio in Los Angeles. I will say it's extremely disappointing for me on a personal level seeing these photos. Having been through the studio in person, I got a first-hand look at how cool a place it was, but it doesn't look so great now. Last December for the C&C Community Summit, it was filled with hope and dreams as the team laid the foundations for a new Command & Conquer. And now, here we are about 11 months later.... well, the photos speak for themselves.....

Definitely the end of an era.

just SAD! :(

 

i nevered liked the free 2 play idea, but this engine and this universe was working really great and there was potentials to become a very good game, or at least solid base for future titles!

they were keep talking about the beginning of something that will last for years......and it didnt even started!

 

the luck of new information, the luck of real progress and changes in the patches, was a worried sign.....but i nevered thought EA was SO damn stupid.

they did it with all the CnC games.....they are spending few money, gather a team and hope the public will be exited and buy this game! HOW? when you have such a damn history closing down everything in the past? how can we trust a publisher with that kind of "blood in their hands" that "this time will be different?!" :mad:

 

i am really sorry for all those developers, and for the community that are been waiting for almost a decade for a successful rebirth of the franchise!

why the heck EA keeps the copyrights and does nothing with them i Do not know! i just wish i was a millionaire to buy the copyrights and make the best CnC game ever. (the way Planetary Annihilation is doing it, single, offline, lan, online, private servers, modern, fast, fluid)

 

such a disappointment and anger. :thumbsdown:

Let these pictures sink in for the foolish developers believing joining EA is a good idea. This WILL be your fate...

Definitely the end of an era.



More like the end of everything it seems. Edited by Sonic

EA, please sell the C&C franchise to somewhere else if you are not gonna make it happened. There are many better Publisher than you that will make this game live.

 

I will join your preyer, but know this would never happen, like sun would rise rise from the west...

Not gonna happen, experience shows EA rather prefers franchises to get buried than sell them, and no, dont count on EA falling apart, they are too big and have too much of a widespread array of products to end like, for example, THQ.

      Here's a video found on YouTube recently, featuring a look at the systems and gameplay of last year's cancelled Command & Conquer. Apparently it was narrated by a former Victory Games developer about a month after the game was cancelled. He explains a lot of stuff about what the development team had in store for game. For instance, a big content patch was planned to be released on the day the plugged was pulled!
      Intro, 1v1 match Featuring GLA Salvage General Explanation of the Generals' Kits Perks and Metagame Discussion The Road to Public Release 1v1 match Featuring APA Espionage General 1v1 match Featuring EU Experimental Weapons General 1v1 match Featuring EU Classic General 1v1 match Featuring GLA Marauder General 3v3 match Featuring APA Urban Assault General

       
      This video was posted on the 22nd of Novemeber 2013. It runs for around 2 hours.

      A few more details about the shock cancellation of Command & Conquer and sad closure of Victory Games have emerged. Reports suggest that the blog posted on the Official Command & Conquer Site, which details the reason for ceasing production, was allegedly "not ok'd by the development team". Here's a recap of this news from IGN.

      There must more that has happened behind closed doors that led to the game being axed and the studio closing. As we discover it, we will be sure to report any new information to you.

      The official C&C website at www.commandandconquer.com has been redesigned once more. The visual design itself is more advanced than it was before, and some of the most noticeable changes are more (yet still scarce) information on C&C - Free To Play, as well as video and screenshot sections. However, the forums were completely missing at the time of posting this news and were inaccessible even through visiting direct links accessed before. All information on EALA games' ladders and legacy games is also gone, however this all can be considered a WIP period. Here's part of EA_CIRE's statement:
