The upcoming Command & Conquer remake was first announced back in November of last year, but updates regarding this project have been slim. Though we don't have a new trailer, we do have a new screencap showing off the game's updated UI:
EA Producer Jim Vessalla first revealed the big project over on Reddit last year, saying: "Today, I'm thrilled to tell you we are going back to the beginning," he began his latest post. "We have decided to remaster Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn. And while this is incredibly exciting on its own, we're also aware of how passionate the community is about the Red Alert universe. So, we will also remaster the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert™. But what about the classic expansion packs you may ask - Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and Aftermath? 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 producer also mentioned that he understands why there would be community skepticism as to whether or not they can pull this off but he assures fans that the partnership with Petroglyph Games is exactly the right step to honor such an iconic series.
Vessalla added, "Petroglyph Games includes many of the original developers from Westwood Studios, and some of the most influential members of the original Command & Conquer development team from 1995. Joe Bostic is known as the co-creator of C&C, having also served as the Lead Programmer on Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert. Steve Tall joined Joe as a Lead Programmer on Red Alert, and Ted Morris was the original community manager on the C&C franchise. And Mike Legg contributed to all forms of audio systems at Westwood, having been an employee since 1986! All four members helped start Petroglyph Games in 2003 after the closure of Westwood and are joined by a veteran group of RTS developers from the past 15+ years."
What makes this move even sweeter is that the remaster will be bringing the original games into this generation in glorious 4K with the help of Lemon Sky Studios. You can learn more about the latest undertaking right here over on the official EA blog with their most recent update.
