You can't blame this on EA. There's a reason they pulled the plug at this point in time.
Actually, you kind of can. It was originally going to be a straight up Generals game in the Frostbite engine, and then they had some fantastic idea to put microtransactions in every game, and then turn the new Generals into a straight up F2P MP-only C&C game.
The team making it was originally Bioware (which is a fully EA owned studio), changed the name of the team at the time of the fantastic F2P MP-only transition (also because it was just after the Tortanic sank and ME3 got so much shtick - not really a trusted brand at that point), so yeah, the team was under strict EA supervision.
Not entirely surprised they pulled the plug, they wouldn't want yet another screw up on one of their major franchises.
I wish I had your level of insider EA knowledge
