EA Brings Back Command & Conquer and It Is Disappointing

Introducing Command & Conquer Rivals
As a major publisher, Electronic Arts has plenty of announcements for E3 2018. One of their earliest announcements comes in the form of a classic game revived: The Command & Conquer series. However, not exactly in the way that many fans are expecting. The trailer below should show why:
The C&C series is of course one of the most important strategy games for the PC. In fact, many of today’s real-time strategy games borrow directly from these games. Now the game is not innovating but rather imitating other games. Specifically ‘‘Clash of Clans’ and other mobile strategy games. Which is not really surprising since mobile games are highly profitable.
Looking at the ratio of likes and dislikes from the trailer is all you need to know about how fans are taking to this story. It currently stands at 19,000+ dislikes versues 1000+ likes. EA also has an actual unlisted gameplay overview video available for those who are curious. Although, even this one did not fare well either with over 8.2K dislikes versus only 248 likes:
