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

Well, there is this Early Access thingy. And even if there was not, a lot of devs and publishers have gotten away with releasing bad games before.

I agree with you and Serrik.

I feel the exact same way Nikssims, and just like you serrik I am not going to buy HOIIV because of this. I am done with paradox.
They could have announced it earlier, they knew it from very beginning. We wouldn't wasted so much time here. Once again **** paradox

Once again, Paradox showing that they're a horrible company and cancel projects that have been hyped for years because they're greedy. I guess this is so they can charge $15 for a barebones Cold War DLC for HoI4.

What I don't get is that it is blatantly obvious Steam doesn't allow what PI wanted to do with the beta. What I find most saddening is that there was a lack of foresight before PI promised what was essentially undeliverable.

Now if I may still believe in The Yes (for it can solve everything), put it on Greenlight for a fixed price.

what about all the early acess games? they have a lot, and I bet the current state of EvW is better then most of the games that are released at steam at alpha.



If EvW was rejected by Steam, then it's clearly not in a good state.

Good luck to the Dev's and BL-Logic, thank you for what you've shown us over the past few months and indeed years now but I guess if steam wouldn't have it in its present state then it's realistically still too far away from being a Beta release to be viable. Time for everyone to cut their losses and move on I guess.

Anyone know of any cold war games worth playing? :)

Remember the other threadm paradox stated they MIGHT release it later as a product? Maybe Valve wouldn't allow it to be on for free then switch to a 'paid for' product in the future.

- 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.

Unfortunatly I don't get this no. You released the Europa engine before and gave people the chance to make a profit out of it.
The EvW engine is the same engine as was used for FtM which means it is (atleast) 2 versions older than the engine used in HOI4.
Add to this that you said you were redesigning the clausewitz engine entirely and I even see less reasons not to release it as I would expect it to be totally different from the new engine.

Steam doesn't allow variable pricing. Again, it baffles me that PI promised something that is completely against the rules of a distribution platform that the game is totally dependent on.

I would be interested in this also, it might help give a sense of why the project was canceled to the folks who are angry at PI.

What do you want to know?
