The new Free to play Command & Conquer has been cancelled and EA has closed developer, Victory Games and disbanded it's development team. The news comes confirmed after an announcement made on the official Command & Conquer Website. Many people have different views of this situation, some say it's for the greater good and some were very disappointed with the news especially that the fans have been waiting since the early "New C&C Game is Being Developed" announcement that was made in 2010 and after all they saw in the GamesScom event last August. Below is a blog post made on the official website.

Generals,

Thank you for your participation over the last few months in the Command & Conquer closed alpha test. It’s been much appreciated, and you’ve been instrumental in helping define what a new Command & Conquer experience should and shouldn’t be.

Part of being in a creative team is the understanding that not all of your choices are going to work out. In this case, we shifted the game away from campaign mode and built an economy-based, multiplayer experience. Your feedback from the alpha trial is clear: We are not making the game you want to play. That is why, after much difficult deliberation, we have decided to cease production of this version of the game. Although we deeply respect the great work done by our talented team, ultimately it’s about getting you the game you expect and deserve.

Over the next 10 days we will be refunding any and all money spent in the alpha. If you have a question about your refund, please contact help.ea.com.

We believe that Command & Conquer is a powerful franchise with huge potential and a great history, and we are determined to get the best game made as soon as possible. To that end, we have already begun looking at a number of alternatives to get the game back on track. We look forward to sharing more news about the franchise as it develops. Thank you again for your participation and support.

- Victory Studios

I have to disagree here, i think its better since when do we play a C&C game without a story campaign anyways. he actually got it right by saying that they were not making a game that we wanted to play or me at least. :hmph:
