EA Says Warhammer-Looking Tanks Won't Show Up in Command & Conquer After All

The above concept art from Command and Conquer Tiberium Alliances, which appears to be ripped directly from Warhammer 40k, will not appear in the upcoming social game, publisher EA has told Kotaku.

The image, which depicts Command and Conquer tanks that look just like Warhammer tanks, has been floating around Reddit and other forums for the past day or two. But EA says the Command and Conquer tanks are just concept art.

"Games Workshop and EA are aware of the IP issues around the artwork in question, which have now been resolved," an EA representative told Kotaku. "The artwork was internal EA concept art that was unintentionally released publicly. No Warhammer 40,000 tanks have ever made an appearance in Command and Conquer Tiberium Alliances, and never will. Games Workshop and EA continue to have a strong relationship working together on Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning and the new free to play game Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes which just entered open beta."

So there you go then.
