Command & Conquer Arena cancelled before it was announced

Command & Conquer fans, prepare to mourn for the game you never knew existed. A leaked cinematic trailer has revealed the cancelled Command & Conquer Arena, which never made it past the drawing board.

Command & Conquer Arena

Electronic Arts never officially announced Command & Conquer Arena, choosing instead to condemn it to the ever-growing list of cancelled games in the franchise.

Judging by that footage, we may have missed out on an massively multiplayer online real time strategy game,

Arena’s not forgotten completely, however! Elements from the game have since shown up in last year’s Command & Conquer 4, which also pitted the Global Defense Initiative against the Brotherhood of NOD and the Scrin aliens.

The war is over. But the battles continue.

This does of course mean that we’re not sure just how many other Command & Conquer missions were aborted before seeing the light of day. This one makes six, on top of Tiberian Sun 2, Renegade 2, Continuum, Tiberian Incursion and the simply-named Tiberium.

Thanks to Video Games Blogger and French site CnC Saga for the footage.

    The Tiberium series is dead. EA should just work on making a decent Red Alert 4 now, the end of Uprising obviously suggests a sequel.

    I’m fairly certain this was just turned into C&C4. They said they’d built an MP game, and then converted it into C&C4, so to say it’s cancelled it more a half-truth.

    fed up of them cancelling games, still to this day the best one is renegade online, esp with the mods added to it so you can use aircrafts, brillant game online, wish theyd bring it to xbox. Plus the guys behind Renalert, the red alert version of renegade, awesome game.

    EA should give Petroglyph a call and beg them to remake Command and Conquer. After all, almost all of the original C&C vets work there
