Rumour – C&C dev Victory attached to EA BioWare label

Tuesday, 22nd November 2011 22:57 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Internet sleuths have linked BioWare’s latest game, seen only in a teaser, with both the Command & Conquer series and a cancelled project from a defunct studio.

Elusive investigator Superannuation noted the LinkedIn profile of one developer employed at “Victory Games – BioWare”.

The studio, founded in 2010 to focus on the Command & Conquer series, had not been publicly attached to the BioWare label.

BioWare is set to reveal a game from a “new studio” at the Spike VGAs, with teasers showing a distinctly military bent.

Additionally, Neogaf user Nirolak has drawn some interesting links between the unrevealed game and the shelved Mercs Inc.

Mercs Inc was in development at Visceral Los Angeles, largely staffed by Pandemic Studios veterans, and was later rejigged for the Frostbite engine and recycled for the since-vanished Army of Two 3. The project was presumed shelved when the studio was dropped from the Visceral label.

EA elevated BioWare from a set of studios to a full label in early August during an organisational reshuffle.

    That’s interesting, because when I saw the clip on Spike.com’s site, I instantly thought it drew similarities to the look of C&C.

    It might nor quite match, but it got me remembering Tiberium, too. http://www.gametrailers.com/game/tiberium/6081 A previously cancelled “different” take on the C&C Universe, as it was before the fourth game. Two trailers for it, there.

    I really don’t care even if that trailer will be “OMGMYBALLS” full of CGI.

    After last horrible C&C games i’m not interested, besides these were RTS series in most cases, not RPG or FPS. Yes, there were spinoffs, but thats it.
