It seems that EA just wants to please longtime Command & Conquer fans after the abysmal reveal of the microtransaction-filled mobile game, Command & Conquer: Rivals. Jim Vessella, Producer at Electronic Arts, has revealed that Electronic Arts may release some remaster versions of the first Command & Conquer games to make the community happy.
As Vessella said:
“As most of you may know, we recently announced Command & Conquer: Rivals, a mobile game set in the Command & Conquer universe. Following the reveal of Rivals, we heard you loud and clear: 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.”
Vessella claimed that over the next few weeks they will be talking to fans in a variety of ways, stating that they are eager to hear fans’ feedback to help influence their current thoughts for PC and what comes next.
This is a right step in the right direction for the franchise. But this is EA we’re talking about. It will take more than a few remasters to appease the disgruntled fans, especially considering how EA killed off the fan-favourite series. But, baby steps EA, baby steps.
