EA is teasing the doable launch of Command & Conquer remasters.
The noise began when EA producer Jim Vessella dropped in on the Command & Conquer subreddit to speak in regards to the upcoming Command & Conquer cellular sport. He was very…diplomatic regarding the franchise fanbase’s response to the sport and the decision for a correct Command & Conquer title on PC.
“As most of it’s possible you’ll know, we not too long ago introduced Command & Conquer: Rivals, a cellular sport set within the Command & Conquer universe,” stated Vassella. “Following the reveal of Rivals, we heard you loud and clear: the… neighborhood additionally desires to see the franchise return to PC. And as a fan of C&C for over 20 years, I couldn’t agree extra. With that in thoughts we’ve been exploring some thrilling concepts relating to remastering the traditional PC video games, and have already got the ball rolling on our first effort to rejoice the upcoming 25th Year Anniversary.”
Of course, Vessella is greater than a fan of Command & Conquer. He’s labored on a few of the sequence most beloved earlier entries. As such, he is type of an authority regarding what makes the Command & Conquer sequence so beloved and what could also be in retailer for the way forward for the franchise.
While his feedback could also be taken to imply that there’s a Command & Conquer remaster already in improvement, we would not get your hopes up simply but. The 25th anniversary of the franchise continues to be a few years away, which means that getting “the ball rolling” on that celebration may simply imply that they are making an attempt to toss round a number of concepts relating to how they will correctly rejoice franchise. For what it is price, although, it is sufficient of a affirmation to at the least preserve an eye fixed out for a remaster announcement within the coming months.
As for that Command & Conquer cellular sport…yikes. Following its lukewarm E3 2018 reception, Command & Conquer: Rivals was completely bashed by nearly each fan of the sequence and players generally. It’s an honest sufficient trying cellular sport as far as that goes, however it bears no actual resemblance to the Command & Conquer franchise because it was in its prime. It’s actually not sufficient to compete with the perfect fashionable RTS video games on the market.
