Indeed I never really got into the C&C series but I grew up on Red Alert, absolutely loved it.

Tis' indeed a shame that they've gone this route. Make an actual good game plz. Red alert 4 while you're at it.

The C&C franchise has been run into the ground at this point. It started with C&C 3 and finished with the C&C 4 monstrosity.

Generals 2 could have been a relaunch point, but then they announced it would be multiplayer only and then was dropped altogether.

At this point I'm not sure they can resurrect it and capture that classical feeling we got between C&C 1 to Red Alert 2.

Maybe at one point in the future a small and passionate Dev team would remake C&C 1 and go on from there...

I grew up playing SimCity and other Sim games by Maxis. Not long after, I got hooked bad on Command and Conquer (Tiberian Sun and RA2 were my jam). I probably played Dead Space more than healthy, and I've been a rabid BioWare fan since Jade Empire.

What I'm trying to say is: EA is pure, concentrated cancer that exists purely to suck the life out of every game they get their Borg-like appendages on.

It is what it is.

EA is remaking the original Command and Conquer with input from fans. So we will have the old ones back soon with modern matchmaking and OS support. They already confirmed 0 microtransactions in the remake game.

I still play Tiberian Sun, Tiberium wars, Generals and Red Alert 2 quite regularly, so to see this classic franchise go down the pan is frustrating to say the least.

First Tiberian Twilight and now this.....

A RTS game developed for mobiles will simply never work, because a mobile will never match the power of PC's. No doubt this C&C game will have limitations due to being developed for mobile phones. Judging by the video footage I've seen it already looks like a massive disappointment and has very little resemblance to the previous C&C games.

Apparently it's not too bad, which yes we know as fans isn't what we wanted but at least we're getting a new fun game in the series. Some mobiles games have worth.

It's great when fans get what they want. I really want a Crysis 4, but with non-linear Multiplayer and better support this time around. Of course that will never happen.

Aren't these the same journos attacking gamers for not sucking up to Blizzard for Diablo: Farmville edition?
