Microsoft has unveiled its latest round of backward-compatibility offerings on Xbox One, and there's a whole lot of real-time strategy courtesy of Command & Conquer.
EA has announced that its recently revealed Command & Conquer remasters are to be helmed by Petroglyph Games, a developer founded by key members of the original C&C team at the long-defunct Westwood Studios.
EA's Command & Conquer PC remasters were first introduced back in October, following the community's angry reaction to Command & Conquer: Rivals, the publisher's free-to-play RTS mobile game. At the time, EA producer Jim Vessella assured fans that, "we heard you loud and clear: the...community also wants to see the franchise return to PC."
Now, writing in a new post to the Command & Conquer subreddit, Vessella has confirmed that EA's remaster programme will begin with Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, Command & Conquer: Red Alert, and expansion packs Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and Aftermath. These will be bundled into a single remastered collection, with no micro-transactions to be found.
After EA canned the Command & Conquer reboot and GameSpy shut its doors, the future looked bleak for the long-running real-time strategy series.

EA's finally confirmed reports about Command & Conquer 3. Going by the working title Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, the new game is previewed in the latest US PC Gamer.
EA hasn't mentioned many details, but scans of the PC Gamer preview are starting to appear in various places and, although we can't show you them ourselves for legal reasons, we can talk a little bit about what's in them.
For a start, the game's due out next year, and is in development at EALA. It's set in the year 2047, when some 20 per cent of landmass is described as a Tiberium wasteland and not good news for humanity. Followers of our old pal Kane, now a "global superpower" themselves, renew hostilities with the GDI - and you come in as a GDI commander trying to turn things around.
Various places are reporting that the cover of next month's US PC Gamer magazine heralds the return of Command & Conquer - with a whopping preview apparently inside.
Although nobody from the US mag's publishers has come out and said as much, most reckon it to be genuine - particularly as the same mag teased about the return of a big real-time strategy series in its last issue.
The cover declares Command & Conquer 3 then, and carries the strap "New race, new story, new war!"
