I know about this story something since I modded and made assets for Yuri's Revenge and modded Generals. Just to know, Generals was made by Westwood, but meanwhile, EA Games bought it and put their own sign. And they closed Westwood. Old Westwood was literally HOLY company compared to EA Games now. Same as old Blizzard compared to that greedy corporation now.Westwood Studios
Then, in 2007 I think, C&C3 was made by EA Games. it was somewhat good, note that it is degradation from very good to somewhat good. Then expansion came, which was... nah. Then in 2008 Red Alert 3 came, which was nothing special, again degrading from C&C3.
Then in 2010 Command and Conquer 4 came. One of biggest failures. They literally changed everything what considered RTS: no building army in classical way, no resources to collect. Instead you captured some buildings and get points over time, so tank will cost you several points. And you could move your base... no infantry, but some exo suits... I mean I am lazy now to explain all what they did, but foundamentally changed things. it was trash anyway. And people did not like it, protested, bad reviews.... They fired half of staff working there as the result.
Then (I cannot remember exactly date) I think in 2012 generals 2 had to come. Instead of talking with community what they like and want, they actually invested millions and MADE BETA, THEN ASKED COMMUNITY! And community protested, they did not want ,,pay to win" system and many stuff. EA Games literally ALMOST FINISHED GAME trashed! They canceled the entire game and accepted that they were wrong.
And lately about remaster, they asked community for opinions and communicated much more... this time around.
it similar to Blizzard, both companies were arrogant and messed with communities....
