Red Alert 3 senior producer, Amer Ajami has said the reason why PS3 owners have had so long to wait for a Command and Conquer port is simply because it was announced too early.

“I think we just announced it too soon to be perfectly frank,” Amer Ajami told CVG.

Apparently, it was the development team’s single core engine that was the reason for the delay: “It just took us longer,” said Ajami.

The Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 Ultimate Edition PS3 is due in March.
