After the success of Command & Conquer Remastered, Publisher Electronic Arts could actually come up with the idea of developing more RTS again. Producer Jim Vessella revealed the future of the series.
Command & Conquer Remastered has made a successful start. Now does that mean Electronic Arts might consider a sequel?
The mills grind slowly
Producer Jim Vessella was asked in an interview what the success of Command & Conquer Remastered means for the future of the RTS franchise.
"It takes time to have these kinds of conversations in a company like EA," explains Vesella. "I think it's the best thing that could have happened to the franchisee. So if you rolled the dice, we actually rolled a 20 on this project! It's the best thing that could happen to get the franchise back into the conversation Bringing the rest of the company's leadership in. Hopefully there is some really good data now, tangible data between the critics 'reaction, the players' reaction and the commercial impact, to try and say, hey, there is something else that we should keep doing the franchise? "
Jim Vessella himself would be on board immediately to develop another game in the C&C series. But in the end, of course, the decision rests with EA.
"If you look at the last decade of C&C I would say that it has put it in the best dynamic position we can have. Especially when you consider what the brand has been through over the past 10 years. Me Dear C&C. I would like to be able to do more with C&C. We'll have to see where the franchise can go with it, but it was really good. The community has been incredibly supportive of the project and approached the project with such openness. And that speaks Volumes. That is significant, and people pay attention to it. "
It is therefore unclear whether we will get a new Command & Conquer. But thanks to the success of C&C Remastered, the chances are now better than ever.
