EA cancels Tiberium first person shooter

By on October 1, 2008, 2:40 PM
Originally set to be released this year, Electronic Arts has announced that it has canceled the upcoming Command & Conquer first-person shooter spinoff, Tiberium. According to the company, Tiberium was “not on track to meet the high quality standards” EA sets for its games.

While this is certainly bad news for fans of the Command & Conquer and perhaps a costly move by EA, canceling a fairly high profile game for quality reasons at least shows that the company is being serious with their recent push to create great, original games rather than keep churning out poorly-made ones just because it makes sense financially. This mentality might not sit well with investors, but will end up benefiting the company in the long run.

HA..HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"High quality standards"???HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!The title of the article could be "EA drafts quality standards". It would be news to me!For reference how's this for quality? FIFA 08. You kick the ball a MILE over the keeper. "Good save by the keeper!...Referee has given a goal kick." I mean the result is right but how is it possible that the commentator voice trigger is so wrong? And the damn thing still has it wrong after 2 patches! It's like left hand doesn't know what right is doing.Good luck with the whole quality standards thing EA. I'm not sure you know what that actually means.[Edited by Darth Shiv on 2008-10-01 20:27:47]

EA is far from creating high quality games. they simply put a game out, make a couple of useless patches and move on to creating same. I was disheartened when I found out that they took over FarCry 2.
