EA have announced remasters of classic Command & Conquer titles somewhat silently, with a single Reddit. These multiple remasters will be handled by none other than Jim Vessella, who also worked on Command & Conquer 3 and Red Alert 3.

In a shocking twist of events, EA decided to listen to their consumers as they cried in pain after realising that the new Command & Conquer game would be a mobile cash cow during E3 2018. According to Vessella, the company saw the feedback and decided offer Command & Conquer fans something more tangible, which would also be released on PC.

While a new game still unfortunately looks unlikely in the near future, fans should be temporarily appeased by remasters of the classics that made them love Command & Conquer. There is currently no information on which exact games will be targeted for remastering, as Vessella only stated that EA have been "exploring some exciting ideas regarding remastering the classic PC games".

Unfortunately, fans will apparently have to wait a bit longer as the developers "already have the ball rolling" in order to make the deadline before or during Command & Conquer's 25th anniversary. This means another two years, since the first Command & Conquer game came out in 1995.

Granted, Command & Conquer are strategy games, a genre completely different from an RPG, but we still can't ignore the fact that Cyberpunk 2077 will most likely be coming out at around the same time. Once that happens, it's expected to throw shade over everything else for a while, at least according to the hype fans have built around it.

Vessella has also stated that the company will be addressing the players over the course of the next few weeks, "in a variety of ways", so they might shed some light on the plans for remasters soon. Players can currently engage in discussion over at Reddit and possibly suggest which games they want to see remastered.
