The game, announced at the Spike VGA event on Saturday night, runs on DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine, is exclusive to PC and will be released in 2013. It’s being developed by Victory Games, the strategy studio EA set up in February which is now part of the BioWare label and has been renamed BioWare Victory.
Dr Ray Muzyka said: “We’re bringing BioWare’s vision for emotionally engaging gameplay and great attention to quality to the strategy genre and the Command & Conquer franchise.”
“I am excited to add BioWare Victory to our label. They are a great addition and the team is working hard to make sure Generals 2truly immerses and engages players into this intense, gritty, modern war experience.”
Executive producer Jon Van Caneghem promised to take the series “back to its roots, blending strategic gameplay with fast-paced action all set in visually stunning theaters of war powered by Frostbite 2.”
