In March of 2010, EA released Command and Conquer 4: Tiberium Twilight. This game was promised to be the epic conclusion to the Tiberium saga. Except it wasn't. EA had completely removed all of the aspects that Command and Conquer games were famous for. The game, in the eyes of Command and Conquer fans, was a complete and utter let down.

Earlier on in 2008, EA released Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3. This game was mediocre at best. Some fans loved it. Some fans hated it. Nevertheless, EA had lost the charm that previous games in the series had.

By far one of the best and most loved Command and Conquer games was Generals. This game was adored by fans, and it is considered one of the best in the series.

In December of 2011, EA announced Command and Conquer Generals 2. The Command and Conquer community was set alight with excitement. Fans went and pre-ordered the game, conversed on internet forums about what can make the game amazing, and speculated was would be in it. The Command and Conquer community believed that Generals 2 would save the series, as the previous game in the series (C&C4), was a huge let down, and signalled the end of the series.

But on August 15, 2012, EA announced that Generals 2 has been scrapped, and is being turned into a Free to play, online only game. Once again, the Command and Conquer community was annoyed with EA's choices. They are scrapping the single player portion of the game, and making it an online only, multi player game.

The game that Command and Conquer fans have waited almost a decade for, is being turned into another free to play game, which forces the player to pay real money to buy aspects of the game to help them win.

Signing this petition will show that you do not agree with what EA is doing to Generals 2, and the Command and Conquer franchise. I know this petition may not get signed by many, and I doubt EA will even bat an eyelid at it, but if we make our voice heard, EA may just hear us. It only takes a second to sign, so even if this is a waste of time, you are not losing that much time out of your day. It's a quick process, so please, sign this petition to have EA bring back Generals 2, the game C&C fans have waited for for almost a decade.

Thank you.
