Oops! EA Accidentally confirms Command & Conquer 4

with 2 comments

You gotta love Twitter sometimes right? News reaches my ears that EA’s twitter feed yesterday morning posted the following:

‘EA LOS ANGELES ANNOUNCES THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMMAND & CONQUER 4 http://bit.ly/LOk6R’

Anyway, in true corporate secret fashion said tweet was yanked and the usual ‘no comment’ was given regarding C&C 4 from the usual square-acting EA spokespeople.

This news comes on the heels of a UK survey that was conducted in June regarding EA titles which inadvertedly revealed a number of details about the new title.

Apparently the newest title in the series will incorporate a new MMORPG style persistent class system, full campaign co-op, 5 vs 5 competitive play and what was cryptically referred to as the ‘crawler’ – a mobile base of sorts that can be utilised.

Well, its time for EA to man up and admit C&C 4 exists, and bringing along a trailer and some screenies would be nice too.

  1. Lets hope this instalment doesn’t take too much from red alert 3 mind… A utterly miserable piece of software with dreadful ‘forced’ co-op campaigns with dreadful A.I partners should a human not be on hand. Mix that with some ridiculously over powered super weapons that could obliterate an entire army about 10 Min’s in the game and you’ve got yourself an exercise in extreme tedium and frustration.
    This news whilst interesting (the PC gamer spy revealed this two weeks ago incidentally) will prove EA’s muscle a little given all the focus RTS wise would be on the sure to be massive starcraft 2 and the news that supreme commander 2 is also well under way.

  2. C&C 4 has been the world’s worst kept secret for the last month, with Eurogamer actually revealing it’s existence over a month ago.
    Official confirmation is all well and good, but with the Starcraft II juggernaught rapidly approaching, they have some ground to make up.
