Despite being canned and the developer closed, EA's free-to-play Command & Conquer may not be as dead as previously thought, with development on the title set to resume under a new studio.

In an update on EA's support website, the publisher revealed that it would be offering The C&C Ultimate Collection customers early access to a new beta "once production of [Command & Conquer] resumes under a new studio".

Victory Games announced that the game had been cancelled and the studio closed last month, stating that negative feedback had led to the project's termination.

"Your feedback from the alpha trial is clear: We are not making the game you want to play," said Victory. "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."

At the time, the studio added that it had "already begun looking at a number of alternatives to get the game back on track."

It's possible, of course, that the game could return as Command & Conquer: Generals 2, the non-F2P title it was originally expected to be. Or it could come back as a sequel to Command & Conquer 4. Which would you prefer...?

EA should brand it as C&C Red Alert (2015). I think that the red alert has the biggest fan base and best reputation. They should "remake" the first Red Alert, and by that I mean a USA v. Soviet situation. Base Building, tanks, and absolutely no scifi *****! The game should have more realistic feel and less cartoony (RA3). I think this will appeal to all c&c fans and easily pull in gamers who want a break from all the scifi based RTS games (which is all of them). And yes free to play is hot, but you don't see call of duty or any triple A title switching over. Keep the upfront price tag.
