It’s official. After EA producer Jim Vessella said the studio was considering Command and Conquer remasters last month, it’s now been confirmed. Both Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn and Command & Conquer: Red Alert are being remastered, as well as the Covert Ops, Counterstrike and Aftermath expansion packs.

All three expansions are going to be bundled in with the original C&C: Red Alert, plus C&C: Tiberian Dawn, in one big remastered collection “without microtransactions.”

“Now, in addition to the excitement and support of this remaster initiative over the past month, there has also been a healthy skepticism that we can pull this off”, said Vessella in a post on Reddit. “How are we possibly going to remaster these titles while maintaining the authenticity of the original experiences? Bottom line, there is no better way to achieve this than to partner with some of the talented developers who brought these original games to life.”

With that in mind, EA will be partnering with Petroglyph Games for the remasters, a studios formed up of many ex-Westwood Studios developers. They’re the studio behind 8-Bit Armies, Grey Goo and Star Wars: Empire at War, so they’re outfit that’s kept doing what it does best – base-building RTS.

 

If you’re hoping to play the Command & Conquer remasters soon then, well, you may want to think again. Vessella wrote in his post that “the exciting part is that we haven’t started development yet.” Which, er, I guess is exciting to someone? Anyone? Basically, we’d best be patient, this could take a while yet.
