The marketing manager for Victory announced tha the studio is now closed on Twitter saying, “Well that was fun. Victory Games is closed. LFW.”

The new Command & Conquer game was to be free-to-play but it had received a pretty tepid reception at the alpha stage and Victory Studios had paused development to decide what to do next. Victory Games closed, new Command & Conquer canned

A message on the Victory Games website said, "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."

"We believe that Command & Conquer is a powerful franchise with huge potential and a great history,”it continued, “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."
