Tiberium canned for “not meeting standards”

Tuesday, 30th September 2008 20:21 GMT By Patrick Garratt


According to this Kotaku story, EA’s stopped work on C&C-based FPS Tiberium because, essentially, it wasn’t up to scratch.

“EA has suspended work on Tiberium effective immediately,” said Mariam Sughayer, EA spokesperson. “The game was not on track to meet the high quality standards set by the team and by the EA Games Label. A lower quality game is not in the best interest of the consumers and would not succeed in this market.

“This decision will result in some individuals being released. However, EA will make every effort to place talented people on other projects. Eligible employees will receive severance and outplacement support.”

    I was wondering what happened to this game, to be honnest i’m glad its been stoped, i’m a fan of C&C and this game looked like it would have pretty much walked all over the lore with dirty boots.

    Oh right so that high quality game Facebreaker met all the crazy high standards required for release.
    Still as a C&C fan i’m glad they canned this. Renegade didn’t work and neither would this, just stick to strategy imo.

    Selective QA at its best.

    Well count me as disappointed I was rather looking forward to a new C&C FPS, I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.

    EA cancelling a game for not meeting standards?
    Not like them to do that.
    The amount of trashy film licences and sub-standard software they’ve produced in the past.
    Is this the sign that EA have changed?

    I wouldn’t bet on it.

    Bit of a shame but tbh, Renegade was horrible enough. And this was never really going to be anything other than Battlefield in C & C clothes was it.

    So no big loss. At least EA are doing a fair amount to get a bit of new IP going rather than shoring up too much of the old crap.
