    Far as I'm concerned, if they aren't gonna make any more RTS they should at least use the IP and the GDI vs NOD scenario for something else, like they did with C&C Renegade... If they took DICE and had them make a Battlefield game set in the Tiberium Sun era I would buy that shit so fast.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.

    Grew up playing C+C, cannot tell you have many hours I spent playing them. I thought generals/zero hour were awesome, so much multiplayer fun. Could spend hours in 1 game nearly losing your base only to use your general abilities and defeat the opponants. So gooood.

    Lots but not ALL the money, so they won't.

    Who needs EA?

    Even if it is: They could make a C&C game like Advance Wars, but I bet its more like a Clash of Clans clone instead.

    They are going where they can make the most money it seems.

    Yep. It's no longer "Make the most money with the best game possible."
    These days it's just "Make the most money with the best game possible."

    Sadly that has become the reality

    I don't think many people would enjoy a new C&C game by EA though. Content would be hidden behind a paywall, and new vehicles, structures & training would be unlockable via loot crates.

    People keep throwing money at EA, which reinforces their business model. Then the rest wonder why we can't have nice things anymore.

    The only hope would be a triple-A military RTS from another company ...

    Can? Whenever.
    Will? Never.
    It became clear that it wasn’t realistic to try to get the audience back to being more hardcore, as it had been in the past. -- Tom Chilton

    Check out Stardock's Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation. It's a really solid RTS. I play it quite a bit.

    It's even worse than that. It's non-gamer sports fans foolishly throwing all their money into Fifa Ultimate Team et al that is protecting EA from suffering the consequences of their shitty anti-consumer practices. That and to a lesser extent the fratbros that snap up CAWADOODY every year. We can boycott all we like, but their stock price is up 500% in 5 years and you look at their profits and 90% of them are literally MTX.
