Petroglyph is taking point on Command & Conquer Remastered

EA announced that it will be officially remastering Command & Conquer Tiberian Dawn and Command & Conquer: Red Alert for PC.

EA first teased a potential Command & Conquer remaster back in October when EA producer Jim Vessella asked a Command & Conquer fan forum what they'd like to see in a possible remaster of the series. EA wanted feedback and it seems the company is ready to move forward with the project.

Command & Conquer Remaster will be handled by Petroglyph Games created by former Westwood employees. Which means the original creators of the Command & Conquer series will be returning to tackle the remaster. Original series composer Frank Klepacki is also returning to serve as audio director for the remasters.

"Here we are 20+ years later and EA has reached out to us regarding C&C. They had decided it was about time to revisit the original C&C games to give the fans what they had been asking for," Petroglyph co-founder Joe Bostic announced on Reddit. "Out battle-plan mission is to 'remaster' rather than 'remake' the original C&C games," he added.

Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert will be remastered in "4K glory" according to EA and Red Alert will also ship with all the expansions including "Covert Ops," "Counterstrike," and "Aftermath."

Development hasn't started yet on the remasters according to Jim Vessella but Petroglyph still wants feedback from fans to help them along development. The team says it wants to leverage today's technology to do things that weren't possible in 1995.

The last Command & Conquer game EA put out was the mobile spinoff Command & Conquer Rivals. Unfortunately Rivals wasn't received too positively, but it sounds like the teams are trying to do right by fans with the announcement of the remasters.
