Chris Mancil, the Director of Digital Communications at EA has posted a statement on the Official C&C Forums confirming the shut-down of the servers for the Command & Conquer Alpha. Development on the new Command & Conquer ceased in late October but fans were still able to play the game, until today. There is one silver lining to this statement, it says that Command & Conquer will return sometime in the future.
