During the weekend at the Spike Video Game Awards, EA confirmed that BioWare is working on Command and Conquer Generals 2, which will be released in 2013 exclusively for the PC.
Powered by the frostbite 2 engine, Generals 2 once again puts players in the middle of an all-out war between three unique factions - GLA and EU are confirmed, but a third faction will be revealed later. It will be developed by the newly opened BioWare Victory studio, which has veterans from past C&C games on the team.
"We're bringing BioWare's vision for emotionally engaging gameplay and great attention to quality to the strategy genre and the Command & Conquer franchise," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, General Manager of EA's BioWare label. "I am excited to welcome BioWare Victory to our label. They are a great addition and the team is working hard to make sure Generals 2 truly immerses and engages players into this intense, gritty, modern war experience."
"For the last eight years, Command & Conquer fans have been begging for a return to the Generals universe," said Jon Van Caneghem, Executive Producer of Command & Conquer Generals 2. "With Generals 2, we are bringing the Command & Conquer franchise back to its roots, blending strategic gameplay with fast-paced action -- all set in visually stunning theaters of war powered by Frostbite 2."
