So, you spent time and money to develop a game, you have almost completed it (at 85 %, as developers said in Q&A) and promised us to release an open beta (after have delayed it so many times), and suddendly you decided to cancel it ? I can't understand it as a fan, i'm sorry to say it....

Innocent is right, what you did is cruel :( I really got my expectations up for atleast a beta, but seems we won't have nothing in the end. Best of luck to BLogic.

No. The developers aren't the publishers. The publishers canceled it. Not the developers.

It's a sad day, I was really looking forward to my SSBN's :(.

Any chance you guys can release the source code and turn this into a (non-profit) community project?
I don't see an issue with engine license because the guys from DH did the same thing with the HOI2 engine I guess and they made a profit out of it.
With HOI4 on a new engine version I think this would even be less of an issue.

I am truly devastated by this. I have no respect for PI, I'm sorry to the devs who spend all their time on this project. I was looking forward to this game for such a long time and to see it finally canceled is disappointment on a whole new level.

Checking the forums today, I was suprised to find that all the threads are locked. I did not get the full image or scale of what happened until I opened this one.

This was indeed a suprise. Although if the decison was made to dedicate more resources to making HOI4, then I hope HOI4 will eventually be a great game! :) (I am more a fan of WW2 than anything else)

I was very much hopeful for this game but damn :( I really hope PDS just creates a Cold War game themselves. Cold war is too great of a time period to not be covered by any game :(

But that's just another WW2 game. This was supposed to be different, a Cold War game that would be a new thing for Paradox.

Paradox, have you learned nothing?!

Very disappointed and very pessimistic about your abilities to make good on future claims.

What resources? The only thing that can be dedicated to HOI is money and that's it.
No coders, no artists, no researchers because those where employees of BL logic.

edit: Some people really need to calm down or maybe look for a psychiatrist.
It's a game if you are truly devestated by the fact that a game got cancelled than you have some other things to worry about.
