East vs. West: A Hearts of Iron Game Summary
Paradox Interactive have made a decision as publisher of BL Logic's East vs West project to cancel the game. It had already been "severely delayed" and an open beta / early access still wouldn't have met "certain criteria".
The actual decision to cancel is 'fresh' and the community has been told "pretty much immediately." As it uses the Clausewitz engine they can't release source code to the community.
Want a chance at your historical or ahistorical figure getting into the Cold War sim that is East vs. West: A Hearts of Iron Game? Paradox and BL-Logic are starting the 'We are the World' campaign today.

The vanilla Hearts of Iron III "only really had depth" through its military, says Gellert Keresztes, whereas East vs. West draws a lot upon national politics and espionage.
Coming to you from the land of Volcanoes and snow. And a lot of meat.
Paradox Interactive CEO Fredrik Wester has high hopes for the continued swell of new platforms, providing they stay open for easy innovation and creativity. He sees "four OSes that will compete" for our attention.
They'll be "Windows, iOS, Android" and most likely Linux because of Steam's outpour of support. It's now "really tough" for indies to get on Windows and iOS - more closed now, ending a golden age.
