The original Command & Conquer released back in 1995 is one of the games that solidified the RTS genre, and spawned a plethora of sequels including classics such as Red Alert, Tiberian Sun, Generals and even an FPS called Renegade.

Since its prime in the mid to late 2000s, the RTS genre has received very little love from developers and gamers alike, but EA hopes to change that with the possibility of remastered versions of the old games.

“Ten years ago I had the pleasure of being on the production team for Command & Conquer 3 and Red Alert 3, along with being the Lead Producer on Kane’s Wrath. During those years, some of my favorite moments were interacting with our passionate community, whether at our onsite Community Summits, on the forums, or while attending various events such as Gamescom,” said Jim Vessella, a producer at Electronic Arts.


He continued with “The Command & Conquer community also wants to see the franchise return to PC. And as a fan of C&C for over 20 years, I couldn’t agree more. 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.”

This an a very exciting announcement for anyone who feels the RTS genre has been abandoned and missed the old games. Let’s just hope that EA doesn’t kill it with microtransactions and the majority of content hidden behind paywalls (DLCs).

Other than that there are no videos or screenshots that we can share with you, so for now just enjoy these pictures of Red Alert 3.

EA killed C&C and now they want to bring it back?

Westwood Studios revolutionized RTS with C&C and everything was great, until EA bought the studio. All the legends started leading because of the direction. Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath were the last good games with EA at the helm, RA3 was lame and C&C 4 was a massive flop that effectively killed the franchise.

EA slapped fans in the face when they discontinued online servers so they killed off the multiplayer aspect. Thankfully you can still play online VIA C&C:Online - Command & Conquer online multiplayer server and there is a good fan community remaining.

Despite all the fanatic fans EA further slapped them in the face when they launched a half-baked C&C mobile game (not worthy of carrying the name) filled with micro transactions.

EA even cancelled a free to play C&C that was being developed.

Now they want to do a likely poor remaster all for the sake of milking the last few die hard fans in the name of some 25th year celebration.

I enjoyed RA3....granted it was cheesy as hell but to me that was the last good one and I like a bit of cheese. It certainly wasn't as bad as whatever else was happening in C&C land at the time. Or as bad as many of the RTSs since that promised to return us to those good old days have been.
And let's not kid ourselves, Einstein teleporting to end the Nazi regime might have been one of the greatest plotlines of our childhood...but it's also cheesy as hell.

The only EA RTS that was good for me was Generals... Red alert 3 and 4 sucked big time!
I miss red alert 2 Yuri's Revenge though
There was no RA4, that was C&C4 Tiberian Twilight.
Red Alert ended at 3's Uprising DLC.

Yuri's Revenge was the last thing Westwood did (if you don't count 3rd person Renegade), from Generals on it was just EA.
