Agreed
I am so pissed right now...
Just... release it how it is right now please
This is horrible, been checking the forum daily even if I didn't log in and say anything
I even thought there was no new DD's because they were close to finishing the game
What the hell PI

I'm a bit confused here. What is the real reason this got cancelled? I'm so used to PR bs that I'm not sure if the opening post is genuine or... well... bs.

EDIT: Another question... why are these games even announced when they just end up canned like this? I'm starting to wonder if the industry as a whole should refrain from announcing anything until they're certain it will actually be released to begin with.

[ Why not release what you got as an open beta as said before?
: This is because Steam will not let us release it in it's current state, and it would cost a lot of money and time to re-write it to be distributed outside of Steam.

But wasn't the game planned to have a non-steam version...? Why is it a steam only engine now?

How much money could it cost to release it outside of steam? Come on it can't be that much and many people would gladly pay some money
Such a great game so close to release, gone straight to the trashcan

Nope. PI in a nutshell. Goes to show what they think of the fans and devs, I can see that it obviously wasn't within their means to support this project but not releasing it to the public to fix and make playable is a slap in the face to say the least.

First of all, I think it shows that they respect their customers and their brand. It would've been much easier to release whatever is there and leave it than to give the project an end.

But they're not going to open their engine to the general public and I'd imagine that's where the devs hit their roadblocks, not the moddable parts that they had significant experience working with. The game was based off an old and crappy version of the HOI3 engine and the amount of work to get that engine usable for a different purpose appears to have been overwhelming.

Were too close for this! The game was almost out in beta, and we the community would have given donations depending on the state of the game, and then it would have been patched and patched. Why did paradox take the decision from us( I know it's not really are decision, but the way they alluded to how the beta was going to work sounded like a way to let the community decide if it was worth it or not by donation), they already said that they may not release it, so it was up to us to decide if the game should live or die by the support we would have given or not given when the damn thing went to beta... Man, I was looking forward to this, a cold war game from bi-logic released by paradox, it was a dream come true. I just wonder why, was the game that unplayable?

Don't worry friends, just wait for the £29.99 Cold War Expansion pack for Hearts of Iron IV, even more enjoyable if you purchase the Soviet Steel expansion which lets you play as any of the Communist factions!


Also don't forget to buy the Axis minors and Allies minors expansion packs for £9.99 each, this unique expansion to the Hearts of Iron IV experience will allow you to play as minor nations in the Axis not previously available in the vanilla game, and the Allied pack will allow you to play as both the minor members of the allies in the war AND the members of NATO if you have purchased the Cold War Expansion pack!

Stay tuned for the new Neutral factions expansion later this year; RRP:£15.99

Welp, there it goes.

Would love to say that this was a groundbreaking event, but I (and we all) should've seen this one coming in 2013. The only reason why my hopes were up was because of the recent open beta news.
