    A joint statement from BL Logic and Paradox Interactive!

    Today it's our sad duty to inform you that it has been decided to cancel the game "East vs West". 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.

    As the project has been severly delayed we dont think that open beta / early acccess could, within our desired timeline, meet the set criteria.

    It has been a journey of ups and downs since we started the development of East Vs West back in May 2011. We wish each other nothing but the best with future endeavors.

    We also would like to thank the developers for their hard work and their tremendous effort, as well as the fans for their long term commitment and their never ending support.

    Yours sincerely
    Fredrik Wester, Lennart Berg, Gellert Keresztes

    Please note that any comments about this happening due to HOI4 will be considered as trolling, and acted upon as such!
    (this assumption is just plain silly. I won't even bother with going into more details about that)

    FAQ!

    - Why did you not tell us about the cancellation sooner?
    : We really struggled to the last to make this game happen. Sadly it reached a point where it was no longer possible. This decision is fresh, and you were told pretty much immediately.

    - Why not release what you got as an open beta as said before?
    : Revised information due to bad communication: So what is said in the initial post - As the project has been severly delayed we dont think that open beta / early acccess could, within our desired timeline, meet the set criteria.

    - Why not release the game to be finished by the community?
    : Releasing the source code would mean releasing the source code for Clausewitz. And I hope you understand why this is not something we could do.


    ***** ABOUT THE EDIT ******

    The revision of the FAQ was made by me who wrote it at first. In my feeble attempts to actually give you some of the answers you seek I misunderstood a piece of information. There is no conspiracy in the works. The decision was simply made that it would not be possible to produce a satisfactory version to release.

    I hope that somehow East vs West can still see the light of day. I would gladly donate to support this project's revival. It is a great concept and has gathered a dedicated following, as attested by this forum. Thanks to BL-Logic from someone who has keenly followed this game since its first announcement.

    Now we must drag everyone out the pit
    anyway, can you not just give us what was made?

    But if the game was such close too a beta... Why did you decide to cancle it, now where everyone was waiting for it? Wasn't it worth a try?

    welp, I was wrong

    I really thought they were going to finish it, and that it was going to be the best cold war game released yet

    YET ANOTHER THING TO TAKE OFF MY INCREASINGLY SHORTENING 'LIST OF THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TO'

    I do hope the BL-Logic guys aren't terribly off because of this

    THEY WERE TROLLING US WITH THEIR OPEN BETA!
    Seriously now why, if it was so close to open beta.

    What about releasing what you currently have and let the community take over? Please?

    I don't really understand this. Better to release as a Beta a'la SOTS2 than simply cancel.

    Really sad for all the developers. I wonder if the code will be made public or released in an incomplete form. I hope so.

    Yes, I do feel for them but come on; PI could have just told us this much earlier.

    I don't think so, because it's the HoI3 code...

    You really should have figured this out before the open beta was announced.

    This makes way for HoI4 and a Cold War DLC there I guess.

    Exactly this... I mean... They started We are the world for a week. And they tell to use like the game is in development... This discision to cancel the game wasn't take today, right?

    Please... No. It would be like a WW1 DLC for EU4.

    Well that is simply awful then. I'm really not sure what to think about Paradox as a company. Why cause all the hype with the open beta and then simply cancel it? Why not just cancel it like everyone was semi expecting?

    I suppose the open beta did reduce expectations, but this just seems dishonest.
