Insiders Spill The Beans On EA's Tiberium Clusterfuck

Illustration for article titled Insiders Spill The Beans On EAs Tiberium Clusterfuck

Tiberium has been cancelled. Can't say we're devastated, since there's more than enough gritty sci-fi shooters on the market as it is, but whatever. Somebody, somewhere, will be upset. Looks like the write-off's not a total loss, however; in the comments section of Gamasutra's piece on the closure, some "insiders" have cut loose, ripping on EA, the development team's management, and...well, everything, really. It's all a bit of a mess, and there are conflicting stories, and there's no way to actually verify any of it (though from the detail and the venom it certainly feels legit), but hey, it's still a fun read.

DISCUSSION

Good insightful read into the grittybits of the industry. Would seem in the end the game was cancelled over extremely poor management issues. 'pparently EA has a problem of hiring too many producers and design directors who don't do a whole lot for the team.
