    He worked on many strategy games at EA then switched to Blizzard working on Starcraft 2.
    Now EA hired him back for a new unannounced title.
    It seems more than reasonable guessing a new strategy game, and EA has C&C.
    However, we ll see

    EA has destroyed every franchise it had ever touched. I am constantly amazed that people still buy their crap. I see a EA logo on a game, I toss it aside straight away. No questions asked.

    I wanted Tiberian Sun(got it :)) and Emperor: Battle for Dune so much as a kid. Now I won't touch any new C&C title even if my life depended on it.

    C&C always suffered from real actors and cutscenes hogging budget from real gameplay. A lot of people think that real actors is a definitive feature of C&C but in fact it is its major flaw. Cutscenes have no impact on the gameplay and yeah, you can have some memorable scenes but players won't remain when your support and gameplay lacking.
    Tiberium Sun and Tiberium Wars both suffered from horrible support. Red alert 3 was the most shining example of tech issues. Generals tried to cut budgets by making only three actors involved but that did not help much. And, knowing EA, I bet they will try to push C&C in the same direction - with living actors, overblown budgets(like Red Alert 3 with wrestlers and models) and horrible actual gameplay.
    That is the reason why Blizzard outperformed C&C. Their CGI could be used for actual game graphics and cutscenes so CGI price increase won't hurt them much because thye used it for other assets as well.

    Blizzard outperformed C&C because they put in shit ton more money into their games starting with WC3. And then Sc2.
    And they were lucky South Korea decided to use Brood War as their entry point into esports.

    Cheesey porn-style actors is what makes C&C what it is. The mechanics was never very complicated or interesting.

    Shooting short live action cutscenes is almost certainly cheaper than producing Blizzard-tier CGI. The idea that Blizzard somehow saves money by making those = lol
