The Paradox Interactive Forums have an announcement from a couple of days ago revealing that development of East vs. West has been cancelled. This planned standalone Hearts of Iron game was originally a modification before becoming a commercial project under the guidance of Paradox. "As the project has been severly [sic] delayed we dont [sic] think that open beta / early acccess [sic] could, within our desired timeline, meet the set criteria," explains Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester. "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." In an unusual twist, the Indiegogo campaign for Project Kennedy, a Cold War grand strategy game, throws the Bl-Logic team under the tank over failure to deliver (thanks Joao): "Note: We worked on past Paradox and Bl-Logic games. We are not the complete team from Bl-Logic that worked on East vs. West and eventually FAILED horribly to deliver a final product by 6. March 2014. They had a quarter million euros in budget and 4 years time to develop their title and still blew it. We know these guys, their bad management and we know how buggy their latest version was. This kickstarter here is definitly [sic] independent from them. They did not get it done, but we will. We are professionals, we stick to deadlines, we deliver quality and we know what counts."
