At the Spike TV Video Game Awards, BioWare announced it is working on Command & Conquer: Generals 2. A new BioWare studio, BioWare Victory, is developing the PC-exclusive real-time strategy game set for release in 2013.

The first C&C: Generals, released in 2003, was a bit of a departure for the franchise. It eschewed the series’ campy live-action cutscenes and instead attempted a more mature, modern story. It also changed up classic C&C gameplay by changing how resources were gathered and armies constructed.

BioWare Victory head Jon Van Caneghem told IGN that Generals “is actually the best-selling game in the series,” so it isn’t surprising that EA would revive it after last year’s underwhelming Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight.

Command & Conquer: Generals 2 will utilize EA’s Frostbite 2.0 engine, currently powering Battlefield 3. You can take a look at teaser footage in the trailer below.

    How did Jon Van Caneghem end up in Bioware Victory? The man's a genius, created some of my personal top 10 games, sadly, none of them were RTS.

    If they reimplement the special installers that used to come with C&C games I may check it out despite the EA tag. I don't have much faith in that though since they went out of their way to remove the installers when they released that collection many years ago

    Basically I want at least see a sign they plan to do more than milk the names of both Bioware and C&C

    I didn't see this coming at all :) Love the C&C games and as long as it's nothing like C&C 4 I'll be a happy boy
