Is the Next Game Called Command & Conquer: Alliances?

Recommended Posts

Fusible reports that on December 2nd Electronic Arts registered over a dozen Command & Conquer domains with name "Alliances" included in each name, such as commandandconqueralliances.com and commandandconquer-alliances.com. The C&C community has been speculating for the past few weeks about this whole EA/BioWare announcement taking place next Saturday, December 10th. So could Command & Conquer: Alliances be the name of the next C&C? Below is the list of new domain names recently registered by EA. However, to add more fuel to the speculation fire, and keep everyone guessing, these domains cover the Tiberium, Red Alert and Generals universes.

  • alliances-commandandconquer.com
  • alliancescommandandconquer.com
  • candcalliances.com
  • candctiberiumalliances.com
  • commandandconquer-alliances.com
  • commandandconqueralliance.com
  • commandandconqueralliances.com
  • commandandconquertiberiumalliances.com
  • generalsalliance.com
  • generalsalliances.com
  • redalertalliance.com
  • redalertalliances.com
  • tiberianalliances.com
  • tiberiumalliance.com
  • tiberiumalliances.com

Hmm, might not be a new universe, but an alliance of all three... :P

Perhaps, anything is possible I guess. But its not uncommon for EA, or anyone else, to simply register domain names to protect them so no one else gets a hold of them. Years ago, EA registered domains like generals1.com, generals2.com, generals3.com, generasl4.com, all the way up to 9 or something like that. It doesn't mean they had/have plans for more Generals games. These domains never get used, so all we are seeing here is simply a strategic marketing move.

 

Even Westwood did it http://www.cncworld.org/?page=westwood/domains

I know. So what? That's the first thought I had when I've seen tiberium, generals, red alert and alliances at once. :P

They've registered domain names before as Sonic has noted, including generals2, but this is the first time I recall them reserving a name that has never been used by one of their games ("Alliance"). Not just one, but 15. I hope it's not a crossover as that would probably be a deathblow to all the C&C stories, but I doubt it will be. But getting a game called "C&C: Alliances" seems likely to me.

Well, in a certain secret brainstorm session at CommandCon, they were thinking about an MMO-type RTS game which could feature units from multiple universes (where a new universe could be DLC). But this is as concrete as that got, and it was just one of the many ideas to take C&C in another direction.

I quite like the idea of this. I could see it being a hilarious game that might actually be fun to play, but I doubt it's the big project they're working on, and I'd hope it's not.

That was C&C Arena. RA3 had beta keys for that.

Wasn't there also a C&C All Stars mod that was supposed to incorporate each unit from every game?

I don't think it had all of them. Neither will Vortex.

Could it not simply be a merging of factions against a new threat?

Naa. I was quite dissapointed with that mod actually. It only conatained three factions, one for each universe. And each of those factions was a mix of units and building from that universe. For example the tiberian faction had both GDI & Nod units from both TS & TD era. Same thing with the buildings.
