What could EA be cooking up?

There may be a slight chance that EA is revisiting the RTS genre following an employees reinstatement. Veteran strategy game designer Greg Black, finds himself back at the EA offices after spending the last 9 years at Blizzard
working on StarCraft II
. Previously Black worked at EA developing titles such asRed Alert 2: Yuri’s Revenge, Lord of the Rings: Battle For Middle-Earth II, Command & Conquer 3
, he left shortly after the completion of Red Alert 3
So, could his reinstatement mean something a little bit more than rekindling an old flame? Perhaps!

Survived my first day back at @EA
It's a weird feeling being back after all this time. Can't wait to show you all what I'm working on
The last time EA was involved in developing strategy titles, we got ourselves a brief glimpse at Command and Conquer: Generals 2 whereby the publisher and studio released it free-to-play online – there, it subsequently fell apart. At the time a statement was released saying “We believe that Command & Conquer is a powerful franchise with huge potential and a great history, and we are determined to get the best game made as soon as possible. To that end, we have already begun looking at a number of alternatives to get the game back on track.”
Thoughts on a new C&C title? It’s been a long time coming, we can only play so much Red Alert 2!
