Here’s a little look at the game, which never actually made it to retail.
Command & Conquer: Generals 2 is the game from the past. The game was announced back in 2011. This real-time strategy was developed by Victory Games – one of Electronic Arts sister studios. It was a relatively big company, which was part of BioWare (it was even called BioWare Victory) at one time and worked solely on Command and Conquer games. It seemed like the studio had potential, but it never actually worked.
Their debut Command & Conquer project was a real troubled development story. What started as a continuation of a successful franchise gradually turned into free-to-play simply called Command & Conquer. What a horrible way to go for one of the most beloved franchises in history.
The game actually allowed you to buy new generals and extra game modes for cash. The story was simple. There was Europe, Asian Alliance, and terrorists fighting each other. The gameplay was pretty much the same: building the base, harvesting resources, creating units. There was no limit on the unit count. The greatest thing was that the game was powered by Frostbite 2, and later Frostbite 3. Unfortunately, the development took a very bad turn.
EA suddenly closed the company and canceled the game. The main reason was the low quality of the game, which didn’t do very well during the beta-testing phase. last time we’ve heard about the game was in 2013. The worst thing was that the game was actually the last big entry in C&C franchise. What a disappointing way to go. Let’s hope 2017 brings some nice surprises for the C&C lovers.
