A planned social game based in the Ghost Recon universe has been cancelled, according to a co-founder of its development team.
Brenda Romero of Loot Drop, a studio that specialises in social games, announced via Twitter that Ghost Recon Commander has been cancelled.
The Tweet read: "Sad news. Today, Ghost Recon Commander was cancelled. As a result, we laid off a team of kick-ass developers. If you have openings, ping me."
We've contacted Ubisoft for a statement. In a response posted by Inside Social Games, Ubisoft said: "Ghost Recon Commander will unfortunately be discontinued because the game play mechanics did not resonate with the core gamer audience.
"For our Ghost Recon fans, we will continue to operate Ghost Recon Commander from now until the end of the calendar year with monetization removed. This decision does not reflect a change of strategy for any of Ubisoft's other social games currently in development or operation."
Ghost Recon: Commander was nominated in the Golden Joystick Awards as one of the year's best browser/flash games.
