When BioWare revealed Command & Conquer Generals 2, it really didn’t make a lot of sense to me. C&C hadn’t set the world on fire since the Red Alert days and the Generals universe was my least favorite. It appears I wasn’t alone and EA has essentially re-announced BioWare Victory’s upcoming RTS as simply Command & Conquer.
The game will now be built as a platform for various experiences in the world of Command & Conquer, all in a free-to-play service. The first installment will be using much of the original material developed for Generals 2, but you can expect to see a return of the Tiberium and Red Alert “universes” as well. The game will also be using Frostbite 2 engine. Hey, more Einstein killing Hitler action sounds good to me.
