    Exclamation EA's C&C designers steal tank designs from Warhammer...

    ...but apparently won’t show up in Command & Conquer TA after all



    Tank designs in Command and Conquer Tiberium Alliances appear to have been copied from Warhammer 40,000...

    Apparently, EA has been accused for ripping off tank designs for their social game Command and Conquer Tiberium Alliances. As seen in the following concept art, these appears to be copied directly from Warhammer 40k....



    Well, EA made an official statement in response to claims, and apparently these won’t show up in the final game, but with this, they basically admited it...

    "Games Workshop and EA are aware of the IP issues around the artwork in question, which have now been resolved. 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."
    They say that was only concept art, but most likely these would made to the final game if no one noticed it.

    Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances is currently on beta phase. This is a free-to-play online browser game and requires Origin to login.

    Thumbs down

    naaah!

    "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."

    that sentence says all i need to know

    probably (without looking at any further info):
    - shared game engine?
    - shared developers?
    - share art assets as PLACE HOLDERS?

    ...some Dev or whoever leaked a picture of a Placeholder Tank he took from that other game he/they are working on, big whoop de doo.

    The only result this kind of *news* brings is that developers are that much less likely to share any preview / leaks in the future, because the higher ups don't want any negative feedback.

    i dont think EA are concerned about negative feedback when you consider all the bad stuff they do all on their own.


    Anyone who wants to add me feel free to do so

    Steam, xbl & miiverse = ImpaledGryphon
    psn = Impaled-Gryphon
