Command & Conquer Free-to-Play Beta set for “First Half of 2013”

Published on November 5th, 2012

BioWare Victory staying quiet to allow the game to speak for itself. Development of the free-to-play revival is progressing well at BioWare Victory, according to the latest post from the studio’s community manager.

The studio has been rather quiet regarding the new C&C game, especially when you compare the way the RTS was revealed at the glitzy Video Game Awards ceremony last year, but that move has been deliberate…

“Now, we know you have a lot more questions about the new Command & Conquer and you may be wondering why we are so silent about it. We’ve decided to actually let the game speak for itself, instead of starting the typical marketing noise you normally would expect. That being said, it might be a few more months before we reveal more information – we don’t just want to tell you about the game, we want to show you.”

“So looking at where we are right now with our game and the ongoing service that comes with Free 2 Play games actually makes me believe that this game can become a great Command & Conquer. And we will be working together with you – The Fans – to make it better and better. As planned right now, the Beta will start in the first half of 2013, and will be the longest running beta phase in franchise history,” states a post by EA_CIRE which you can view here.

There still seems to be a significant amount of confusion regarding the next chapter in the C&C series, but for the moment BioWare Victory are making all the right noises calling out Command & Conquer 4′s failings and pointing out that the legendary franchise created by Westwood Studios is more than just “Tiberium, Kane and the crazy Yuri.”

Command & Conquer fans deserve some redemption – here’s hoping BioWare Victory can pull something out of the bag…
