Jim Vessella, a producer for Electronic Arts, has posted news on Reddit about Command & Conquer’s future. According to his post, the studio wants to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the game, which will be in 2020, by releasing some of the iconic PC classics in remastered form. EA also has a new C&C mobile game that is currently in pre-alpha stage.

There’s been little to cheer about for hardcore Command & Conquer fans over recent years. The original RTS game was released in 1995, and it took the gaming world by storm. In those days it was Westwood Studios (which was acquired by EA in 1998 and closed down in 2003) that spearheaded the development of the real-time strategy hit. Unsurprisingly, a plethora of titles followed; some were good and some were bad. Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight was released to mixed reception in 2010, and there has only been sporadic noise in the C&C universe since then.

A browser-based game called Command & Conquer: Tiberium Alliances was launched in 2012, but this free-to-play title's gameplay format meant it only offered limited satisfaction to fans. However, it looks likes the gloomy days have really started to brighten up for the C&C community: A mobile game called Command & Conquer: Rivals (reveal trailer below) has been announced by EA, and now it seems the California-based game-maker is also going to treat gamers with remastered versions of the original series.

Vessella has asked for feedback in his post, and he has already been giving away some interesting information. He stated no microtransactions will be added to the remasters, that there is already a first effort in development, and he has been encouraging Reddit users for additional suggestions. If you have a Command & Conquer itch you’ve been desperate to scratch over the years, then head over to Vessella’s thread and make your voice heard. Help to keep Joseph D. Kucan (the Brotherhood of Nod's despotic leader, Kane) in work.
