Command & Conquer: Generals 2 Will Be Free-to-Play
Today at gamescom, EA announced Command & Conquer Generals 2 will be a free-to-play title. The new online platform and service will launch in 2013.
Jon Van Caneghem, VP/GM at EA said:
“We are thrilled about this opportunity to transform Command & Conquer into a premier online experience. For nearly two decades, this franchise has existed as something you buy; now we are creating a destination where our fans will be able to access the entire Command & Conquer universe, starting with Generals and continuing with Red Alert, Tiberium and beyond. With Frostbite 2, we are able to keep an emphasis on the AAA quality our consumers expect while staying true to the RTS gameplay they know and love – all available online for free.”
Could this be in response to End of Nations, or was this the plan all along?
