Command & Conquer Remastered Will Be Co-Developed By Petroglyph & Will Include Red Alert
New information surfaces that Electronic Arts will be sharing development duties for the recently announced Command & Conquer Remaster to Petroglyph Studios, a dev studio founded by the same people that actually made the original Comman & Conquer games.
Revealed last month, Electronics Arts are in the works of remastering Command & Conquer which was released in 1995, for its upcoming 25th year anniversary. At that time, it wasn’t clear exactly what was going to be remastered.
I’m happy to say that we’re not just getting a remaster of the first Command & Conquer but also Command & Conquer: Red Alert with all its expansions in one package.
So he development team will include influential figures that were instrumental in the creation of the original Command & Conquer. Jim Vesella tells us about this team of devs.
He goes on to clarify that development hasn’t actually started and they are in the phase of brainstorming exactly what they would want in a remaster and getting feedback from the community.
Joe Bostic, one of the co-creators of Command & Conquer state that the team’s objective is making a remaster rather than a complete remake, but confessed that the definition of a remaster is still a little hazy. The team is still figuring out just how much they want to change from the original.
Which is why they are seeking feedback from the fans. Oh… and a little surprise…
Yes, Frank Klepacki is back to redo the soundtrack, although the iconic Hell March should remain, but maybe cleaned up with higher quality audio.
So there you have it. There’s a lot to look forward to if you’re a Command & Conquer fan. But I don’t expect it to be out any time soon. But it’s confirmed we’ve got the perfect storm here with the right team of people working on it.
What do you want in a remaster? Do you want completely reworked graphics? Do you want it to be still in 2D (I think so too)?
