Will the Command & Conquer series become an online game for casual gamers?
After the production and released of command &conquer 4, the C&C fans might have to face several changes. Apparently EA plans to realign the series.
The popular Command & Conquer will apparently have to face a harsh fate. The development studio was cut down in size, the feedback from the community of the currently produced fourth part is not too good and EA's Jon Van Caneghem now told Gamasutra that C&C is supposed to become an online title since that would be the future of the series.
And that's the future Canegham sees for many games. Direct to Consumer strategy is the keyword. The development has been established among the role-playing games over the past years while strategy games are limping behind. Online distribution and online implementation are supposed to open new perspectives for the C&C series.
To fans who don't like the new concept are told by Van Caneghem that many Facebook users are already play Online Strategy games and like them. The goal of the new strategy is to make the C&C series accessible to a broader audience. More information can be found at Gamautra.
