EA Apparently Working on a Command & Conquer Remaster

But fans, unsurprisingly, are worried.

Command & Conquer: Rivals was announced earlier this year, and while fans have asked for a new C&C game for ages now, no one was exactly thrilled by the news. While the game is a far cry from the atrocity that was Dungeon Keeper, another old RTS that EA tried to revive on phones, it’s still not what the people really want, given how it seems to be boiled down and stripped of much of the “personality” that had made the original games such a success.

But for all of EA’s many, many flaws, it’s not like them to leave money on the table, as just the other day, EA’s own Jim Vessella (a producer who worked on Command & Conquer 3 and Red Alert 3) went to Reddit to give loyal fans a… interesting proposition.

“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.

We are eager to hear your feedback to help influence our current thoughts for PC and what comes next. Over the next few weeks we’ll be talking to fans in a variety of ways. In the meantime, please share your thoughts here on the subreddit.”


A remaster for the Command & Conquer games is exactly what the doctor ordered, but fans have, so far, met the news with… anxiety. The first couple of posts you’ll see responding to the news are pleas to keep the remasters free of microtransactions and loot boxes, and doubt as to EA’s sincerity. Which is more than fair, as EA deserves scrutiny. But if they can manage to not mess it up, this would be objectively good news.

So fingers crossed that it turns out alright, and EA actually listens for once.
