Report: Command & Conquer Generals 2 Release Date Window, Price, and Collector's Edition Details

by Charles PowersJanuary 18, 2013

Yes, you read it right, The Game Fanatics is the first site to bring you details of EA’s upcoming game, Command & Conquer Generals 2. We got the scoop on a release window for the game’s launch as well as collector’s edition and pricing details, find out after the break. With the layoff of the original Command & Conquer team, things looked bleak for the title, but in February of 2011 EA announced the creation of studio, Victory Games and later that year Command & Conquer Generals 2 was announced at the Spike VGA’s.

Information from a very credible source has now told us that EA is planning the soft launch of Command & Conquer Generals 2 sometime in Q1 2013, which would mean sometime before March. Now if you’re asking why has there not been a release date window if the game is set to be released so soon, pay special attention to the words soft launch. As with most Real-Time Strategy games, Command & Conquer Generals 2 is expected to have a ridiculously long tail, allowing it to be launched via a downloadable executable file months before a retail box hits the shelves.

Now we are also told that the Command & Conquer Generals 2  Collector’s Edition should launch in the fall and will feature a tank replica and/or exclusive DLC, and that Command & Conquer Generals 2 will be one of EA’s first games to feature “CLC”, or continuous live content.

Another thing of note is that Command & Conquer Generals 2 will be more EU focused, with Poland being the #1 country that’s playing the C&C games (Germany, Europe and others not far behind) you can see why. Command & Conquer Generals 2 will be priced “higher than previous games,” so expect this to be one of the PC games that breaks the $49.99 and probably even the $59.99 mark.

We’ll be checking with our sources and as more details on Command & Conquer Generals 2 surface we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

    Oh, man. I really want this, but more than $60?

  • Alex Stevens

    Wha? Where did this come from? I thought it was being folded into a new F2P platform and just called Command & Conquer. If this news article is true, that makes me feel better, but this is an odd announcement.

    This article is BS and the editor should be ashamed of himself for releasing such garbage. Byt what can you expect from someone named Charles. Rofl.

    This information is clearly false. Command & Conquer Generals 2 is no more and is just Command & Conquer and all Generals 2 assets is being transitioned over to the new F2P/Service model for C&C.

    No other details regarding the new C&C has been released to the public yet. Those details will be coming soon as the game draws closer to launch.

    No release date has been announced at this time. Those who purchased The Ultimate C&C Collection will get a chance to enter the beta phase for the new C&C when that is ready for testing.
