So it's been confirmed: http://www.vg247.com/2011/12/11/biowares-cc-generals-2-announced-for-2013/ I wouldn't say that Generals was my favorite series, but I spent a more time than I should have playing it. There was no story to speak of and the factions were as generic as could be, but the gameplay was fun and that's what kept me coming back. Wonder what they'll do with it now. All we do know is that the premise is a terrorist attack at a summit of world leaders leaves the planet's superpowers without any leadership except for their Generals (which is -very- far fetched) and the game is being developed on Frostbite 2 as a PC exclusive. GLA and EU are the only confirmed factions. I'm not sure about the political structure of other nations, but in the US if the President dies the Vice President becomes president and if they both die the speaker of the house becomes president and it goes down from there but -never- gives executive power to the military but does eventually land on the Secretary of Defense who isn't a member of the military nor can hold the position if he/she has served in the military less than 7 years prior. However, even that would require the incapacitating of SIX other people in the line of succession. Also, the secret service makes sure that the Pres, VP and Speaker are never in the same place at the same time (other than in the White House) specifically to prevent something like that from happening. But I suppose that may be why the US isn't included in a list of factions.
