According to a report on Polygon
, speaking with EA exec Frank Gibeau, the upcoming free-to-play release of Command & Conquer --previously known as Command & Conquer Generals 2 when it was originally announced as a traditional retail product-- will be getting some manner of singleplayer content, with Gibeau explaining that the free-to-play business model allows the developers to evolve the product to meet player demand, and that solo play was in high demand.
"Our intention with Command & Conquer is to create a triple-A experience," Frank Gibeau, president of EA Labels told Polygon in a recent interview. "And by that I mean we're using Frostbite tech, we're using very high-end graphics.
"Does that mean it's not going to have single-player? No, that's something we've obviously heard loud and clear that is important to people. The beauty of free-to-play, is that we can adjust and adapt to what we're hearing as opposed to, 'I'm sorry, it's two months from ship and it is what it is.' It's a very different model because you don't have to build as much. You build in response to your audience."
Command & Conquer is in development by the newly established BioWare Victory. Player registrations and a chance for eventual beta participation are still open over at commandandconquer.com
