Cold War Strategy Title East vs. West Cancelled
Paradox Interactive has ended the development of BL-Logic’s East vs. West
The publisher revealed the news yesterday in a joint statement with the game’s developers. The game originally began development back in May 2011 but, according to the publisher, has failed to meet planned company timelines.
“We at Paradox Interactive have the utmost respect for BL-Logic and this is not a decision that has been taken lightly—quite the contrary—but ultimately we are a publisher and our actions and decisions must reflect that,” said the statement. “As the project has been severely delayed we don’t think that open beta / early access could, within our desired timeline, meet the set criteria.”
While this news is likely to disappoint strategy fans who has been looking forward to the Cold War-themed game, it’s unclear at the moment just how big a blow this will be to its developers at BL-Logic. Assembled by former modders, the studio has only released one other game besides East vs. West. According to Paradox, the company wishes the team “nothing but the best with future endeavors.”
