Comrades, rejoice! Yes, the next in the Command & Conquer series will indeed be Red Alert 3. Which we pretty much knew. (In fact, did kinda know. Just couldn’t say so before without raining down death and destruction upon ourselves, infuriatingly. One day, RPS will have its Woodward and Bernstein moment, but “inevitable RTS sequel inevitably announced” was not it).
And we know nothing else, at least not until a copy of PC Gamer US, with its Soviet-tastic theme cover, arrives in our hands. “PC Gamer’s April 2008 cover story (hitting newsstands on March 4th) will dish tons of exclusive dirt on the next chapter in the Red Alert series”, says the mag’s Senior Executive Editor Chuck Osborn, who I was shooting in the face only yesterday. AND IN THE GAME.
Official details from the EA bunker are revealed tomorrow. We’ll doubtless pick out pertinent details for you then. The only other artwork so far is this also knowingly silly cover for Hungarian mag PC Guru.
