    Make a new Dune game with the Westwood IP instead, and try not to make it as boring as the last C&C and Red Alert games.

    Here's a suggestion: "DON'T DO IT!"

    Let it die already. Make something, oh I don't know, ORIGINAL!

    Right, here's my 2 pence. DO NOT MAKE ANOTHER ONE. Failing that if you have to, a good storyline about the SCRIN invading and finding the Earth all Tiberium controlled etc... No mobile bases, No pathetic unit limits, Old School Command and Conquer.

    Anything else is blasphemy... anyway, CNC4? That game was never released in my eyes, you f*cked up with that and as such the storyline was disregarded as was that heretical game that, god knows The Emperor would condemn you all for.

    Either DO NOT MAKE ONE. Or make one true to the original games up to CnC3 and I will consider your company redeemable. Also include the Redeemer "COUNT TO TEN!"

    As much as I want a new Dune game, EA as they are now with respect to RTS games would ruin it.

    ...

    As for C&C5... no, just no. I don't ruin the series more than you already have done, EA.

    I agree, except ...
    ... this +1.

    The only good Dune games were 1 and 2. The rest have been shadows of the originals.

    They killed it with C&C4. The lost interest will hopefully show in poor sales for C&C5 & then they'll bench the IP & pick up something else. Personally I'd like them to ask DICE for something Mirror's Edge 2 shaped again after Battlefield 3 is finished.

    Well this makes sense I mean C&C4 showed us all that EA don't have any ideas left maybe we do have to pick up the slack. I agree with just about everyone here though and my only thought is "just don't make more".

    C&C 4 was a failure in many ways... although i bought the game (limited edition)... after hearing the beta edition from friend who was a tester i thought that EA finally killed it...

    i wish for the layout to be reverted back to the original because that definitely did work... although i really want to see another renagade sort of game though...something which DICE can do I hope

    One thousand times this. I wish EA would stop putting time and effort into beating tired IPs into the ground and instead expand on some of the fresh new ones they have released in the last few years. Sadly, I don't think we'll ever see a ME2, but the C&C series will keep on going just because of the C&C name.

    God, C&C has been awful for years. How about the devs play some SupCom and World in Conflict, and take some of the good ideas from that and put them in the C&C world (ideally without cartoon graphics)

    To echo most people's sentiments: my suggestion to EA is don't. Just don't.

    Let it die a comfortable death. Dressing it up, slapping a bit of make-up on and parading it around the streets is just undignified.

    If they really have to, just make Red Alert 2 again with higher Resolution

    keep the camera angle @roughly 75 degrees not at 30

    Smooth and fast gameplay is a must (but not a race to build like in Starcraft)

    realistic graphics not bright colours but with the same charm as the pixelated RA2 graphics (but do not let me zoom in right up to the unit)

    allow me to build a uber base

    do not bring in any rediculous units!!!

    actually havig thought about it

    Rewrite RA2 but allow for enourmous maps with about 20 enemies on (that work together or against each other)

    Focus on skirmishes and not multiplayer (I gave up on multiplayer after 5 mins and i played RA2 skirmishes A LOT
