Is BioWare's Mystery Game A New Command & Conquer?
Remember this screenshot? It's one of the few hints we have concerning BioWare's mysterious new project.
Well, maybe we have another hint: according to Superannuation, a LinkedIn resume (which has been edited now) indicated that studio Victory Games was part of the BioWare family.
Victory Games is the new "strategy studio" EA revealed earlier this year; it's like Danger Close and Visceral Games (i.e., rebrandings of current teams) and Victory was supposed to handle the dormant Command & Conquer franchise. As for the mystery game in question, the only teaser we saw promised a "new direction" from BioWare, which may indicate a fresh take on the legendary C&C strategy series. The good news is that we won't have long to wait, as BioWare will unveil this game at the Spike TV Video Game Awards on December 10.
Personally, I've never been a fan of RTS so I wouldn't mind a "new direction" for Command & Conquer. On the other hand, I imagine the long-time fans will be a little upset if this is true...
