Posted on March 19, 2013, Ian Miles Cheong Victory Defeated As Petroglyph Pulls Plug On Kickstarter
Just days after its launch on Kickstarter, Petroglyph has pulled the plug of Victory due to lack of interest in the game.
The studio, which is largely made up of veterans from Westwood Studios—the developers of the original Command & Conquer games—announced its plans to Kickstart a new real-time strategy game called Victory with a goal of attaining $700,000 in crowd funding.
Petroglyph experienced lay-offs late last year when Trion announced that it had pulled development duties of End of Nations away from the studio to finish it themselves. They flew under the radar until the announcement of Victory.
Victory was slated to be a World War II-themed, team-based action strategy game in which players controlled (and collected) companies of units to battle in quick online matches. There is no system for resource management or base building. Had the game been released, it would have played a lot like End of Nations.
A video walkthrough of the canceled game can be seen below.
