Xbox360 not getting Command & Conquer 4

Behold disciples of Nod, the end is soon upon us. EA today announced that, after almost 15 years and 30 million games sold, EA is bringing the award-winning Tiberium series to an epic conclusion with Command & Conquer 4. Shipping in 2010. Unfortunately for Xbox360 gamers who bought Command & Conquer 3 - you’ve shit out!, since this is PC only

The Official EA website states:

Command & Conquer 4 will introduce a multitude of innovations to the to the classic fast and fluid Command & Conquer gameplay while retaining the core compulsions that fans have come to love over the series’ history. Introducing new class-based gameplay, mobile bases and persistent player progression throughout all game modes, Command & Conquer 4 offers players new, innovative and compelling strategic depth.

“Command & Conquer is a powerful franchise with an amazing 15-year legacy. We are thrilled to bring the dramatic Tiberium saga to a conclusion in Command & Conquer 4. This game is designed to give fans all the answers they’ve been looking for,” said Mike Glosecki, Lead Producer of Command & Conquer 4 at EA Los Angeles. “With its objective-based multiplayer mode, persistent player progression and all-in-one mobile base, players will experience Command & Conquer like never before.”

The story of Command & Conquer 4 takes place after the events of the critically acclaimed Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars. The year is 2062 and humanity is at the brink of extinction. With only six years left until the mysterious crystalline structure Tiberium renders the earth entirely uninhabitable, the two opposing factions - Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and the Brotherhood of Nod - inevitably find themselves in desperation for the same cause: to stop Tiberium from extinguishing mankind. The unthinkable becomes reality and Nod’s enigmatic leader Kane takes off for GDI headquarters. What is Kane planning in the heart of his enemies’ base? Command & Conquer 4 draws the epic conclusion to the beloved Tiberium universe, where fans will learn the fate of Earth, Nod, Tiberium, GDI and most importantly, Kane’s motivations behind his decade-long plan.

In addition to the two campaigns on the epic battles of GDI and Nod, which players will get to conquer alone or in a cooperative mode, Command & Conquer 4 will also feature a new 5v5 objective-based multiplayer mode, promoting teamwork and cooperation and delivering a social real-time-strategy experience never seen before in a Command & Conquer game.

Command & Conquer 4 is being developed at EA Los Angeles and will ship to retailers in 2010 for the PC

Well, I have a feeling us Xboxians may have a say in this after all. Our green bills should probably make the EA execs listen, right? :)

it’s for the best. it never really belonged on the xbox. On pc it was a world class game, on xbox it was a mediocre title at best.

Meh…Halo Wars is a much better RTS for the console. (Although I only rented it because honestly I am not that into RTS)

Good, keep it off of consoles. The series has been rubbish ever since EA took over (with the exception of Yuri’s revenge).
