EA have confirmed the existence of a brand new Command & Conquer games in development. Newly established and christened Victory Games will be handling the new C&C. The official website that had leaked previously has relaunched with a fresh look and an interview with Victory Games GM Jon Van Caneghem.
"Victory Games was created to be the focal point for the creation of strategy games for the Games Label at EA. Our current focus is making a AAA Command & Conquer game, which I am very excited to be working on. I've always been a big Command & Conquer fan," said Caneghem.
"I can tell you it's a Command & Conquer game for the PC, but we're not yet at a stage where I can go into any details"”we'll be prepared to make a more formal announcement later in the year. We're not just working on a game, though. Our general focus is on the future of Command & Conquer. That means updating a lot of the core technology to create a stable base for future development, and leveraging that work on this first game.
"We have offices in Los Angeles, CA; Austin, TX; and Shanghai, China. It almost feels like one location though, as we have video conferencing systems setup 24/7 which offers us a stronger and more personal level of communication between offices," he added.
"We've put together a team made up of some of the best talent from previous Command & Conquer games along with a great mix of quality industry veterans. Everyone that we've brought on board is very passionate about making strategy games.
"I want the fans to know that Victory Games is committed to bringing Command & Conquer back to the forefront for the next ten years and beyond. We'll be announcing our first new game later this year."
