A purported website that went live prematurely yesterday night has revealed some of Electronic Arts’ plans for its reboot of the Command & Conquer franchise.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun first reported the details, which were made available on the website www.cncstage.com before being taken down. A cached version of the website is still available to view, however.
A newly formed studio called Victory Games, being headed up by former Might and Magic developer Jon Van Caneghem, will run EA’s entire strategy games portfolio going forward. In an interview published on the website, Caneghem says “Our current focus is making a AAA Command & Conquer game, which I am very excited to be working on.”
“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,” he added. “We’re not just working on a game, though. Our general focus is on the future of Command & Conquer.”
Details about the game were not made apparent. EA says it plans to “combine classic RTS gameplay with bold new technology, innovative new concepts and, as always, tanks by the dozen.” Victory Games has offices in Los Angeles, Calif., Austin, Texas; and Shanghai, China.
EA has not responded to requests for comment at this time.
