Command and Conquer beta begins first half of 2013

The Command and Conquer beta begins in the first half of 2013, it was announced on the official Command and Conquer blog by community manager EA_CIRE.

This will be the longest-running beta phase in the history of the franchise, reads the post.

"Now, we know you have a lot more questions about the new Command and Conquer and you may be wondering why we are so silent about it," writes EA_CIRE. "We've decided to actually let the game speak for itself, instead of starting the typical marketing noise you normally would expect. That being said, it might be a few more months before we reveal more information - we don't just want to tell you about the game, we want to show you."

This upcoming installment in the Command and Conquer series began life as the PC-exclusive RTS title Command and Conquer Generals 2 before being transformed into a free-to-play digital platform and reportedly re-focusing attention onto multiplayer.

Acknowledging this new direction, EA_CIRE writes while "many" might say the upcoming title "is not a 'true' C&C," the team aims to deliver a "fun to play, engaging, and high quality RTS experiences."

"This new direction has a lot of potential and there are no boundaries or limits to what we can do together in the future in terms of content."

Command and Conquer is scheduled to release in 2013.
