Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising's assistant producer Matt Ott reckons there's life in the real-time strategy series yet.

"I'd hardly say Red Alert has run its course," Ott told Eurogamer in an interview published today.

"We've surveyed our fans and Red Alert is consistently the most beloved Command & Conquer universe. Since Red Alert games are all about over the top alternate-realities and time travel gone wrong, the possibilities are really limitless."

But while the team has received "a great response to Red Alert 3", Ott also dampened the expectations of fans hoping for a quick-fire sequel.

"We aren't secretly working on a new Red Alert behind closed doors," he said. "Remember, more than seven years passed between Red Alert 2 and Red Alert 3." Which is fine. We're not doing anything in 2016 anyway.
