The lights are on
"Finally, a gamer’s game on Facebook," Ubisoft said earlier this year. Seven months later, that game, Ghost Recon: Commander, has been canceled.
Developer Loot Drop confirmed the game's cancellation this afternoon and said it had to let go employees from the studio. "Sad news. Today, Ghost Recon Commander was cancelled. As a result, we laid off a team of awesome developers," Loot Drop wrote on its Facebook wall.
According to the Facebook listing, 190,000 monthly users play the title.
"Ghost Recon Commander will unfortunately be discontinued because the game play mechanics did not resonate with the core gamer audience," an Ubisoft representative told Game Informer. "For our Ghost Recon fans, we will continue to operate Ghost Recon Commander from now until the end of the calendar year with monetization removed.
"This decision does not reflect a change of strategy for any of Ubisoft’s other social games currently in development or operation."
maybe some of those devs will get picked up by a better studio and go on to do something useful, like PC/console games
They were probably afraid of being sued by Apple somehow.
Man, that sux. They should've put this out for IOS and Android.
There is no such thing - literally.
I didn't even know this game existed, but as far as I'm concerned FB games don't add much to the gaming spectrum. Not to say they necessarily lack creativity but with so many other outlets there isn't a real need I feel for most of the "hardcore" audience. FB games were always for the stay at homes who got addicted and while FB is still relevant for most people's obsessions, I have noticed a severe decrease in time spent on the site since people have found it's more fun to be outside, then share.
quite frankly, Facebook is not for serious gamers and the games it has aren't even good. they are all just ways for companies to suck money out of people. personally i think Facebook games are a waste of time, hence why i play them when i need to waste time XD
Because, you know, Facebook is the future of gaming.
The karma is palpable.
Well that sucks. They have a PC edition right ?
i was bored of this game in a half hour.
I'm a huge gamer, and I do not play Facebook games. Ever.
When I think "video games," the last thing that comes to my mind is "Facebook."
