 EA’s Jim Vessella posted on the C&C subreddit, confirming that yes, we’re getting remasters and not just of one game, but two!
Hooray!
In the post, which you can read in full here, Vessella writes: “A month ago, we let the Command & Conquer™ community know we were bringing the franchise back to the PC, starting with a remaster initiative. The reaction from fans has been amazing, with many of you sharing your favorite C&C moments from the past 23 years. We have been reading these comments and listening intently. And now, we are ready to reveal our first PC offering and how your suggestions are already influencing our approach.

“Today, I’m thrilled to tell you we are going back to the beginning. We have decided to remaster Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn. And while this is incredibly exciting on its own, we’re also aware of how passionate the community is about the Red Alert universe.

“So, we will also remaster the original Command & Conquer: Red Alert™. But what about the classic expansion packs you may ask – Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and Aftermath? Well, C&C and Red Alert wouldn’t be the same without them, so all three expansion packs will be bundled with the base games into one remastered collection – without microtransactions.”

The announcement also confirmed that EA will be partnering with Petroglyph Games for the collab – meaning lots of the original Command & Conquer devs will be on-board with the ambitious project.

There’s also going to be the help of Lemon Sky Studios, who’ll “bring these original games to 4k glory.”

Before you get too excited, there’s a lot of work to be done here, as Vessella admits that development on the remasters hasn’t yet begun.

For now, check out the video below and let us know what you think! Are you excited for Command & Conquer remasters Red Alert and Tiberian Dawn?
