After a very long seven year wait, the legions of Command & Conquer: Red Alert fans can finally sit back with the happy feeling that a sequel to this popular franchise is right around the corner.
Rumors circulating on the Web have been speculating for years that since EA shut down the original Red Alert developer Westwood Studios, another sequel would never see the light of day. The powers that be over at EA however know pretty much what they are doing and they know the value of the Red Alert franchise. Many of Westwood's former programmers and graphical artists are still employed by the conglomerate.
They gathered up these former artists to make sure the sequel that finally provides a climax to this popular real time strategy game will burst onto the gaming scene in a few weeks. Red Alert 3 debuts first for the PC, and then sometime during the summer months the Play Station 3 and Xbox 360 versions will come.
