Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 – Uprising‘s assistant producer Matt Ott reckons there’s life in the real-time strategy series yet. “I’d hardly say Red Alert has run its course,” he said implying Red Alert 4 is likely to go into production at developer Electronic Arts in the future.
In a recent interview, about the just-released download-only Uprising expansion, he continued: “We’ve surveyed our fans and Red Alert is consistently the most beloved Command & Conquer universe. Since Red Alert games are all about over the top alternate-realities and time travel gone wrong, the possibilities are really limitless.”
The Eurogamer interview notes that the team has “gotten a great response to Red Alert 3, it has a very strong community,” and “the dev team loves the Red Alert franchise.” But Mr. Ott dampened the expectations of fans hoping to see the sequel Red Alert 4 in the near-future by saying: “We aren’t secretly working on a new Red Alert behind closed doors. Remember, more than seven years passed between Red Alert 2 and Red Alert 3.”
Nooooo, not another 7 years! It can’t come soon enough!
