A link has surfaced between BioWare's impending new game reveal and the Command & Conquer franchise as a Victory Games worker CV said they worked at a BioWare studio.
Victory Games was created by EA to head up their strategy titles, and is said to be reviving Command & Conquer. The studio promised a reveal "later this year" - mere coincidence?
A teaser for the Spike VGAs showed a tank blasting APCs in an urban setting, which naturally fits Command & Conquer. It said a 'new direction' for a 'new game'.
The LinkedIn profile that showed the Victory Games employee at a BioWare studio has since withdrawn the information. BioWare is well known for its role-playing games and has MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic launching just after mid-December. Are they now branching out to strategy games, starting with Command & Conquer?
It sure looks like it. Will we be getting RPG elements or are they going pure RTS? We'll have to wait and see for the Spike VGAs which air December 10th. There was speculation 'Mercs Inc' was involved but that's been shot down.
