EA Resolves IP Issues With Games Workshop Over Leaked Tank Concept Art

There was a slight kerfuffle last week, when a few pieces of artwork for the upcoming Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances were placed next to some existing Warhammer 40,000 tank models and some eagle-eyed people played "spot the difference"...and found very few.

EA has brushed this off however, saying that it was all a big misunderstanding, and that the company and Games Workshop have resolved their "IP issues".

"Games Workshop and EA are aware of the IP issues around the artwork in question, which have now been resolved," EA said in a statement to Gamespot. "The artwork was internal EA concept art that was unintentionally released publicly."

"No Warhammer 40,000 tanks have ever made an appearance in Command and Conquer Tiberium Alliances, and never will. Games Workshop and EA continue to have a strong relationship working together on Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning and the new free to play game Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes which just entered open beta."

Tiberium Alliances - the free-to-play RTS game being developed by German studio EA Phenomic - is also currently in open beta.
