EA brings in original Command & Conquer devs to help with remasters

EA will remaster the first two 'Command & Conquer' games in 4K

Command & Conquer, Command & Conquer: Red Alert remasters from EA and Petroglyph coming

Since then, it has received a number of installments.

"I'm excited to revisit the original Command & Conquer and Red Alert for our legacy fans, along with introducing the games to a new audience!" For years now, many have been asking EA to remaster these experiences for modern devices.

Electronic Arts has shared more details on its upcoming Command & Conquer remasters. "Well, C&C and Red Alert wouldn't be the same without them, so all three expansion packs will be bundled with the base games into one remastered collection - without microtransactions". The reaction from fans has been incredible, with many of you sharing your favorite. moments from the past 23 years.

Additionally, a new video from EA was also released today officially announcing that Frank Klepacki would also be tied to the projects. In fact, he said that development has not even started yet, so fans may have a long wait ahead of them. That specific phrase may be meant to assuage anyone left with a sour taste in their mouth after trying 2018's smartphone-only game Command & Conquer: Rivals, which tried to capitalize on Clash Royale-style microtransaction bloat-and felt little like a classic C&C game as a result. If you could turn back the clock, what would you have wanted in the original C&C games? But what about the classic expansion packs you may ask - Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and Aftermath?

Vessalla added, "Petroglyph Games includes numerous original developers from Westwood Studios, and some of the most influential members of the original Command & Conquer development team from 1995".

There's been healthy skepticism in the "C&C" community about whether or not EA can successfully remaster the games, Vessella said. Hopefully they'll be able to capture of essence of what made the titles so great. In the meantime, OpenRA has a decent version of the original Red Alert you can take for a spin if you're keen.
