BioWare is dipping their toes into the strategy genre with a new studio, BioWare Victory. The offshoot studio is taking a stab at the long-running Command & Conquer franchise with a follow-up to 2003’s Command & Conquer Generals, currently titled Command & Conquer Generals 2. Scheduled to come out for PC in 2013, Generals 2 will be powered by DICE’s Frostbite 2 engine and feature three sides vying for ultimate power.
After a terrorist attack at a peace treaty signing wipes out many of the world’s leaders, the militaries of the remaining superpowers are left in control to stamp out terrorism. Although it seems like a pretty startling lack of foresight to have every civilian world leader at the same place at the same time, it does provide an excuse for three sides to duke it out across the globe in a single-player campaign as well as against and with friends online.
