BioWare Victory takes Charge with Command & Conquer: Generals 2
Last night EA officially unveiled the sequel to Command & Conquer Generals at the Spike TV Video Game Awards. Generals 2 has been a long time coming, as the first one came out in 2003.
It has been revealed that the company taking charge of the project is BioWare Victory, also known as Victory Games, a studio founded in 2010.
Command & Conquer Generals 2 is powered by DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine, which should no doubt bring a whole new level of visuals and destruction to the RTS genre. The game is set to release exclusively for the PC in 2013.
“We’re bringing BioWare’s vision for emotionally engaging gameplay and great attention to quality to the strategy genre and the Command & Conquer franchise,” said Dr. Ray Muzyka, General Manager of EA’s BioWare label. “I am excited to welcome BioWare Victory to our label. They are a great addition and the team is working hard to make sure Generals 2 truly immerses and engages players into this intense, gritty, modern war experience.”
“For the last eight years, Command & Conquer fans have been begging for a return to the Generals universe,” said Jon Van Caneghem, Executive Producer of Command & Conquer Generals 2. “With Generals 2, we are bringing the Command & Conquer franchise back to its roots, blending strategic gameplay with fast-paced action — all set in visually stunning theaters of war powered by Frostbite 2.”
