In a short article on EA's Customer Service Help site, our first clue to the future of the Command & Conquer franchise may have been found. The help article explains what people can do to get any money they have spent, on the now cancelled Command & Conquer alpha, refunded. But it also says that people who purchased Command & Conquer: The Ultimate Collection, will still get early beta access once production resumes under a new studio.
After much deliberation and feedback from the closed alpha test period, the current version of Command & Conquer is no longer being produced.
Over the next 10 days we will be refunding any and all money spent in the alpha. If, after November 8, 2013, you still have not received refunds for your purchases, you should contact a game advisor and we will be happy to assist you.
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.
There is already some rumour and speculation that Command & Conquer has already been given to a new studio. Presumably another one within EA. But of course we can't confirm this right now.
