The blog reads: “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.”
It goes on to say that they will attempt to figure out how to use what they’ve built on some other Command & Conquer thing, and that anybody who spent cash in the close alpha will get refunds.
