Tiberium Goes Bye-Bye

I was thinking only the other day that we hadn't heard anything about that somewhat dreary-looking Command & Conquer FPS for a while, and then I spot news over at Blue's that EA have unexpectedly put it out of its misery.

"It is with a heavy heart that I announce the end to all work on 'Tiberium,' effective immediately", sez Ea's Mike Verdu. "The game had fundamental design challenges from the start."

Given it really wasn't looking all that stellar (RPS readers at the time of the first footage certainly weren't terribly taken with it), it's probably for the best, what with C&C's populist profile recently being boosted by all that Red Alert 3 boob-mania. The real sad news is that it could affect some folks' jobs - here's hoping they're all moved onto interesting new projects. Below the cut: the trailer and some in-game footage, for old time's sakes.
