The Command & Conquer game is apparently down but not out. Though EA recently ceased production and shut down the development studio in the process, a recent statement implies that it could be making a comeback.
That certainly seems to imply that EA plans to continue development of the free-to-play Command & Conquer game, albeit with a new team and likely a new direction. When the game was canceled, the team bluntly stated, "We are not making the game you want to play." Even then, though, they did state that production was being halted on "this version," and another version appears to be forthcoming.
