New Command & Conquer incoming
[UPDATE] EA GM says work is under way on new entry in real-time strategy series; unannounced title "still pretty far out": EA confirms title being developed in LA.
Just over six months after Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight shipped out, the next installment in the storied strategy series has been unveiled--sort of. Speaking last week to industry trade site Gamasutra, EA Games general manager Nick Earl revealed that a new entry in the series is in the works.
Few other details were revealed about the game, which Earl said was "pretty far out" in terms of release. It is unclear if the title will stick to the series' real-time strategy roots or be an action spin-off. It was also unclear which internal developer was crafting the next entry in the franchise, which has been historically developed at EA's Los Angeles studio. The article's focus was on Visceral Games, but it did not say explicitly that the Redwood Shores, California-based studio was developing the project.
[UPDATE] EA has now confirmed that a new C&C game is in the works at EALA, not Visceral. "A Command & Conquer game is in the earliest stages of development by a team located in Los Angeles," a rep told GameSpot. "Though not part of Visceral, this RTS team reports to Nick Earl, General Manager of EA’s Action/RTS group. Command & Conquer is a long-running, wholly-owned EA franchise that we continue to invest in."
The last Command & Conquer game, Tiberian Twilight, effectively ended the GDI vs. Brotherhood of Nod storyline, which began with the original Command & Conquer back in 1995. C&C4 is set in the year 2062, when Earth becomes so completely covered with the toxic (yet energy-rich) mineral known as Tiberium that the human race is in danger of extinction. In the face of this threat, the longtime enemy factions join forces against a common foe.
