Earlier today, Electronic Arts apparently snuck out a single-line update on something called 'Twitter' which pointed to a non-existent press release formally announcing the upcoming Command and Conquer 4.

While no other information is available at this point, it seems safe to assume that they wouldn't do that just to tease people (although it'd be hilarious if their next Twitter announcement was "haha just kidding"). Expect more information on this to be made available soon once the rest of EA catches up to their Social Network Announcement division.

Well they'd have to get it out quick as all speculation leads to believe that SC2 is going to be huge! Fingers crossed it will be.

This is EA we're talking about.

They'll take the CNC3 engine, add some bloom, a bit of lens flare, cobble together a story over afternoon coffee, sketch some box art on a napkin and release it as CNC4.

yeah they have no idea what they are doing with these 2 franchises these days imo

they used to be absolute standouts, now they just blend into the rest (down towards the bottom of the pile)

generals was the last decent one from this group

when they try to be too futuristic with them, they just seem to fail.

Too right. I enjoyed the multiplayer in CNC3 because it wasn't associated at all with the terrible story line.

RA3 was just terrible. They raped the franchise with RA2, then came back for more.

Edit: I feel I need to rant a little bit about this.

From EA's website:
The light-hearted, over-the-top, wacky world of Red Alert has returned with Command & Conquer Red Alert 3


First of all, f*** you. Westwoods Red Alert was never "light-hearted", "over-the-top" or "wacky". I remember one of the Soviet missions requiring you to go into a village and slaughter all of the civilians. And in the end video for the Allied campaign, Stalin is gagged and then has his head crushed by a rock.

EA have taken what used to be my favourite gaming franchise and have mangled and twisted it into something unrecognisable.

Since when did Command and Conquer EVER have a good storyline? I thought C&C3 did a pretty good job storyline wise, felt like a continuation of the oldschool C&C story with Kane and everything. I enjoyed the single player part, I just hardly even bothered with the multiplayer though.

I thought the original CNC and Red Alert story lines were excellent. Tiberian Sun was a bit meh, but I felt it was a good continuation. Red Alert 2 was a total waste of my time and money, I stopped buying CNC games at this point.

CNC3 was a welcome return to the original universe, but I felt that the plot was a little too cobbled together. Not enough was explained. Then all of a sudden Landau Calrissian shows up and things went downhill from there. I enjoyed the multiplayer aspect of the game because I could focus on the units I remembered from the first game and just pretend that the abysmal plot was just a bad dream.

RA3 was a disgrace. Attack bears? Wtf were they thinking? I installed it, sat there with my mouth gaping in disbelief through the opening video, played one skirmish game, then quit. I haven't looked back.

I think if RA3 was a totally separate game, I could have got into it, I liked the sheer stupidity of some of the units and I liked the real over the top vibe it had, but it came off more as a parody of Red Alert and s*** all over the franchise, so yeah I had kind of the same experience. Booted it up, played a couple of missions in the soviet campaign, then never played it again.

Even the cutscenes were intentionally bad, and intentionally over-acted, which was funny for the first 10 seconds or so, and then just became annoying and s***.

God I wish twitter would die in the ass.

Amusingly enough, that's what happened with NFS Undercover. I still shudder just remembering the brightness / glare.

I'm willing to put up with light hearted wacky over the top worlds as long as every one of the cinematic cut scenes has people like this in it:
