EA is Looking to Remaster Classic Command & Conquer Games for PC With Input From Fans

EA is bringing classic Command & Conquer games back.

EA is looking to remaster classic Command & Conquer games ahead of the upcoming 25th anniversary for the series and they want input from fans about what they'd like to see in the project.

In a special message to the OpenRA Command & Conquer community forum EA producer Jim Vessella, who served on the production team for Command & Conquer 3, made an appeal to forum members for feedback "to help influence our current thoughts for PC [development]."

"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," Vessella writes.

EA is apparently working on remastering classic Command & Conquer PC games and "already have the ball rolling" on the first effort meant to time with the series' 25th anniversary.

A special message to OpenRA.

Command & Conquer: Rivals is the most recent game in the series, though it's a streamline mobile game where two players battle against one another online in a small PvP match. Not quite the full PC experience of older Command & Conquer games. You can read our Command & Conquer impressions from E3 here.

Vessella says that in the coming weeks EA will be in touch with fans in "a variety of ways" but for now is looking for feedback from the OpenRA forums specifically about what should come next to PC in regard to a remaster. We anticipated a full announcement in the future.
