Combat Mission Campaigns cancelled

February 27, 2009

combatmissioncampaigns According to a thread over on battlefront.com Combat Mission Campaigns has been canceled. The reason provided is that it was too hard for the small team to develop and it was costing too much compared to the likely return. Sad news really, CMC promised to be an interesting game and an interesting way to play Combat Mission.

    I don’t know that this is really all that sad; the screenshots indicate a really antiquated interface – a 3/4 map with goofy sprites that were supposed to be an operational layer where you move entire divisions of troops? I was on the beta team for awhile and I can attest to the fact that there were some really talented scenario designers lined up for this thing, nonetheless, and there were even more “out in the community” who would have provided free content once it was available for sale, with all kinds of great ideas for campaigns from Brest-Litovsk (saw the maps for that one, and some screenshots are up at the Battlefront forums now that the project is cancelled) to Mtsensk to Stalingrad to Leningrad to Kursk to Army Group Centre to Sevastopol to Berlin. But I don’t think the operational layer as envisioned – based solely on what has been presented in public via screenshots and open discussion – would ever have really been suitable for a decent operational/strategic campaign. It was a nice idea but the interface looked a little too klunky – like something out of Soldiers at War by SSI years ago.
