EA Revisiting Command And Conquer For 25th Anniversary

Command and Conquer Remasters Being Considered

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

Command & Conquer is a real-time strategy series that launched back in 1995, developed by the now-defunct Westwood Studios. Following the reveal of Rivals, we heard you loud and clear: "the Command & Conquer community also wants to see the franchise return to PC" wrote Vessella, somewhat addressing the negative reception. A mobile-only skirmish game, it's a game that tries - and fails - to capture the essence of Command & Conquer.

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).

Aside from its strangely compelling narrative and use of live-action cutscenes, Command & Conquer is known for its brilliant soundtrack composed by Frank Klepacki.

The most recent C&C game you can play is Command & Conquer: Rivals, a mobile game set in the Command & Conquer universe but people still pine for the old games on PC and many would like to see the games evolve on the PC.

Command & Conquer Remasters Are Being Considered By EA

Vessella stated that the company is "eager to hear your feedback to help influence our current thoughts for PC and what comes next", and will therefore be talking to fans in a variety of ways.

While his comments may be taken to mean that there is a Command & Conquer remaster already in development, we wouldn't get your hopes up just yet.

As per the following statement posted at OpenRA - a site that aims to remaster and update classic Command & Conquer titles including Red Alert, EA is actively looking at remastering the series for the 25th anniversary. Others have asked EA to avoid; lootboxes in any form, any online only requirement, or pay-per-faction/commander. The 25th anniversary of the franchise is still a couple of years away, meaning that getting "the ball rolling" on that celebration might just mean that they're trying to toss around a few ideas regarding how they can properly celebrate franchise.
