Ea_Cire Saying Goodbye

31 October 2013 - 06:04 AM

Well,

 

where to start - I am actually very sad to see my favorite franchise being put to rest, especially that sudden and a game close to launching. Did we do everything right - Hell no! But we were a talented team that made a lot out of what we had. But with your help and those die-hard gamers within the studio, we were trying to influence and challenge more and more of those "given" mechanics - the status quo - to make a game that could wear the C&C badge with pride. The game wasn't there yet and it would have taken a few more month to get the basics to where they needed to be. Our future roadmap looked also much more promising - Crushing would have been added with the patch this monday together with the first part of our movement/pathfinding overhaul and we had announced Campaign Missions at GamesCom :(

 

But well, EA decided that they don't want to continue the project and there are many sides to the story of why exactly they decided to do so. I will not go into the details because i don't know all the pieces and the ones i know are not necessarily meant to be discussed on a public forum.

 

As most of you know, the whole team has been let go, including long-term C&C Veterans. Unfortunately i don't know what will happen to Command & Conquer. While i hope that the franchise will finally get a worthy new installment to positively overshadow C&C4 and the cancellation of this attempt, i don't think that it will happen any time soon.

 

I would like to thank our voluntary Moderator team, aka "Apoc's Army", as they busted their butts days and nights to keep this place a happy place. Even though they were a little bit hard on me sometimes when it came down to feedback - I will always remember the day when i told them that Generals 2 has been canceled and we are going to move to F2P - but they always showed the passion i so much love about this community. We have seen so many negatives in the last 10 years, but fans around the world came together and made fantastic maps, mods, videos, contests, art, tournaments and fansites. There is so much potential in this community and it makes me even more sad to think about what we could have been able to achieve if a new and good Command & Conquer game would have made it to the release line. Bottom line is THANK YOU for being a great Community (outside of the typical trolls you find everywhere in modern days).

 

You are dismissed, Commander/General!

 

Sincerly,

Eric

 

PS: CIRE is Eric backwards - Now you know my big secret ;)

 

PPS: I did not write the blog post that went up on the website - it was pre-written

Best of luck in the future Eric!

 

I think the best thing that could happen for C&C would be for EA to sell the rights....

With you actually on the helm Eric I was more than thrilled that the C&C franchise returns to its root and overshadow the failed installment of C&C 4. You and I worked together before and we both know how unhappy we were about C&C 4. We have shared on many occasions what we actually wished for in a new Command & Conquer game and it was a pleasure seeing you actually working on a new installment. EA's politics and shenanigans costed your job now and you are being punished for amazing work you have loved.

 

Command your army

and

Conquer the world!

 

See you in the future!

Best of luck Eric, I hope you land back on your feet soon!  I really wish this would have gone a different route, as I would have loved to see what was really on the horizon for C&C.

Good luck Eric and all dev team members. I sincerely hope that some team in the future adopts our dear C&C and brings back the true glory to the series.

Damn it EA, you could have waited for at least that!

 

EA should just sell the rights to someone who actually cares to make a good game. They are obviously just too warped with greed to think coherently about the long term game.

I think EA did installed the crushing part of the game pretty early, by cancelling the game :(

 

Thank you for the hard work, I hope you and all the other folks who are working around for the community and the game will return once we have a new cnc on the horizon.
