Command and Conquer 3 Producer Acknowledges Plot Problems
The year isn’t 2028, it’s 2030. At least, that’s the main point of disparity in the time line of the Command & Conquer series.
Mike Verdu, Executive Producer of Command and Conquer 3, hopped on the forums and sent out a message to the masses of fans who pointed out the plot inconsistencies in the game:
“While most of the canon for the C&C Tiberium universe is not in dispute, there are a few key areas where there is confusion about what actually happened and when it happened.
We readily acknowledge that there are some inconsistencies in the fiction, and we agree that these need to be resolved over time. To some degree, these issues are a byproduct of something really good: The enduring nature of C&C. The world of the C&C Tiberium games is a wonderfully compelling place; the richness and complexity of that world is a result of many different creative contributors who have developed and extended the world for more than a decade (since the release of the original game). The community has even had a role in that process.”
Well thankfully they did the responsible thing and fessed up to their fans. It’s horrible when sequels of games completely ignore their predecessors, creating gaping plot holes and frustrating followers of series.
Hopefully they will gracefully find a solution to their time shift, and any other problems which might have arisen with the novel.
