I hope everyone is enjoying one of the best years ever for PC gaming.
On the eve of one of our own major releases, The Lord of the
Rings™, The Battle for Middle-earth™, the one thing we've grown
to understand is how important the community - our most loyal
supporters - is for industry. This started back in our days at
Westwood where the community for our games has always been a big
priority. We understand that you are the most important and
influential group for us and we are constantly amazed at the amount of
talent used to create quality assets and mods.
Having said that, we have a MAJOR announcement to make and we are
making it exclusively to our long time C&C fans. This announcement is
not going out to the press and it won't appear on the EA website or
anywhere else online. We are very proud to announce that the team
that brought you Command & Conquer™ Red Alert 2™, Command &
Conquer™ Yuri's Revenge™, and Command & Conquer™ Generals has
officially started work on our next project set in the Red Alert
As I mentioned, we're very proud to ship what we feel is one of the
best RTS games ever released. Most of you have probably heard of The
Lord of the Rings™, The Battle for Middle-earth™ which hits
stores this week. We've introduced some really innovative features and
gameplay mechanics, which you should definitely check out when you
get a chance. You will also see a major enhancement to the Sage
graphics engine we originally created for Command & Conquer Generals.
Expect us to leverage and continue to evolve this powerful engine as
we start work on our new Command & Conquer game.
Thanks again for all your support over the years. This entire team is
incredibly excited to work on the next Command & Conquer chapter.
Look for an official announcement soon and have a wonderful holiday.
VP and Executive Producer
