Command and Conquer: EA Teases Remasters of Original Games

Command and Conquer: EA Teases Remasters of Original Games

The newest Command & Conquer game is a bit of an abomination.

The surprising statement arrived through a Reddit post by Vessella himself, who had worked on C&C 3 and Red Alert 3 as part of the production team and also acted as the lead producer for Kane's Wrath expansion. Despite the demand for a new entry, most fans weren't especially happy to see the series come back as a mobile game that seemed to emulate the likes of Clash of Clans. Since that games reveal, fans of the series have been pestering EA for a proper game in one of the most venerated real-time strategy franchises.

Vessella wants to make more of C&C beyond this 25 anniversary special (though we don't have any solid indication of what the celebratory output might be). Now, EA is teasing Command & Conquer remasters on PC. "With that in mind we've been exploring some exciting ideas regarding remastering the classic PC games, and already have the ball rolling on our first effort to celebrate the upcoming 25th Year Anniversary". We are eager to hear your feedback to help influence our current thoughts for PC and what comes next. He continues to work in sport but loves talking all things Xbox, PS4, and PC just as much.

Command & Conquer remasters could be tank-rushing their way onto the PC

So there you have it - an invitation to get involved in shaping exactly how C&C will return to the PC.

Of course, none of this sheds light on what titles would be in the running for a remaster, but whatever EA does, this could eventually pave the way for true sequels if the demand proves to be there.

The last Command and Conquer game to be released was C&C Rivals, which is a fair attempt at modernizing and miniaturizing the classic RTS concept, but it's not really what fans of the series hoped for when it was first announced. The most recent fan comments were motivated by the announcement of mobile spin-off Command & Conquer: Rivals at E3.
