Westwood says no to Renegade sequel

Rumors that a sequel to Renegade was in the works are dispelled as high-resolution Red Alert universe models are released to the Renegade mod community.

A post to the official Command & Conquer Renegade mod forum has revealed that Westwood did early work on a sequel to Renegade that would have been set in the Red Alert universe. Westwood's Greg Hjelstrom posted, "Just to end the speculation, we were working on a sequel to Renegade which was in the RA universe and focused mostly on multiplay but it has indeed been cancelled." The post, which was highlighted in a report by Shacknews, followed Westwood's release of high-resolution models, including Red Alert unit art, to the Renegade mod-making community.

A Renegade sequel had not been announced, and a Westwood representative contacted for comment could not confirm that such a project had ever progressed past the concept stage. Westwood continues to support the Renegade multiplayer community with patches, including one released just a couple of weeks ago.

Command & Conquer Renegade is a first-person shooter set in the Command & Conquer universe made popular by Westwood's highly successful real-time strategy series. For more information, read our full review of the game.

That Stinks :(. PS. I think Logan Sheppard would fit nicely as the protagonist for the next C&C Renegade. Don't you think?! :P I wonder if EA will continue this project??

I think if it did have a sequel which I hoped for back when I got it that they would focus mostly on multiplayer instead
