Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath Summary
The latest game series to crawl from under the shattered monolith that was GameSpy is Command & Conquer.
Fans of the venerable RTS franchise have banded together to provide a new server for several titles in the series, in order to replace those shut down when the multiplayer service.
The new Command & Conquer from BioWare Victory, which was to be C&C: Generals 2, has become a free-to-play affair from EA. It will launch without a singleplayer campaign, but 'will get one'.
Community manager EA_CIRE acknowledges that many will say "that this is not a 'true' C&C," but says that applied to the original Generals. For him, C&C "isn't just about Tiberium, Kane" and Yuri.
A link has surfaced between BioWare's impending new game reveal and the Command & Conquer franchise as a Victory Games worker CV said they worked at a BioWare studio.
Victory Games was created by EA to head up their strategy titles, and is said to be reviving Command & Conquer. The studio promised a reveal "later this year" - mere coincidence?
The Command & Conquer team at EA have noticed their changes in C&C4: Tiberian Twilight didn't exactly go down a treat with fans, and so now ask for input.
They say the "most discussed and loved ideas" will reach the development team. Hopefully they include more traditional base building, and less gimmicky units.
In a case of 'accidental websiting' by publisher EA, a brand new internal studio called Victory Games is announced and they'll be handling all strategy games.
A little more was spilled online before the new EA site got pulled - a brand new Command & Conquer is being developed for PC; reveals "later in the year."
