EA teases further entries in the franchise to be released through digital service

Command & Conquer: Generals 2 goes free-to-play

EA’s upcoming RTS Command and Conquer: Generals 2 is going free-to-play in the browser.

The game has been renamed Command & Conquer, and will be based completely online through a new digital platform created especially for the franchise.

The game and service is set to launch next year, with EA stating that further entries into the long-standing series could be released outside of the Generals universe.

"We are thrilled about this opportunity to transform Command & Conquer into a premier online experience," said EA VP Jon Van Caneghem.

"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 triple-A quality our consumers expect while staying true to the RTS gameplay they know and love – all available online for free."
