BioWare Unveils Command & Conquer: Generals 2by Craig Getting on December 11, 2011 12:28 AM EST
At the Spike TV Video Game Awards, BioWare announced it is working on Command & Conquer: Generals 2. A new BioWare studio, BioWare Victory, is developing the PC-exclusive real-time strategy game set for release in 2013.
The first C&C: Generals, released in 2003, was a bit of a departure for the franchise. It eschewed the series’ campy live-action cutscenes and instead attempted a more mature, modern story. It also changed up classic C&C gameplay by changing how resources were gathered and armies constructed.
BioWare Victory head Jon Van Caneghem told IGN that Generals “is actually the best-selling game in the series,” so it isn’t surprising that EA would revive it after last year’s underwhelming Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight.
Command & Conquer: Generals 2 will utilize EA’s Frostbite 2.0 engine, currently powering Battlefield 3. You can take a look at teaser footage in the trailer below.
