During the Video Game Awards 2011, Electronic Arts announced that its label Bioware has begun developing a sequel to the Command & Conquer Series.
Generals 2 is promised to deliver "cutting-edge visuals, sound, and destruction that will bring a new level of fidelity to strategy games." The release date is sometime in 2013.
The story of Command & Conquer Generals 2 puts users in the scenario of terrorist attacks that disrupt a world peace treaty, kill all leading politicians and put the globe's military powers in control. The player assumes military control to defeat terrorism. EA said that gamers will direct "three unique factions in a thrilling single-player campaign, and with friends online in cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes."
“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.”
The original Command & Conquer game was released in 1995. More than 30 million copies of the series have been sold since then.
