Tiberium Wars erupts on 360

Thursday 22 June 2006
Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars will be released for Xbox 360, tweaked for Microsoft's console by members of the development team responsible for the 360 version of Battle for Middle-Earth II, an online broadcaster has claimed.

Stephen Glicker, podcaster and owner of a large book of industry contacts, recently interviewed EA's vice president of creative development, Louis Castle, for his online chat show GamingSteve.com. Before the interview started, Glicker stated that he knew for certain that C&C 3 was 360-bound, using the excellent control system created for Battle for Middle-Earth II on 360.

Castle, co-founder of Westwood Studios - the creator of Command & Conquer - dodged any questions about the upcoming C&C three-quel, but it would be wise for EA to make further use of Middle-Earth II's intuitive and gamer-friendly controls. Read our preview of the Lord of the Rings RTS to find out how the controls work.

When we contacted EA directly for a response, we were told that C&C 3 was only announced for PC and that's all it would comment on. But with such agile controls at its disposal, we'd be surprised if EA didn't have plans to bring Command & Conquer 3 to Microsoft's next-gen console. We'll be putting our collective ears to the ground to find out more, so stick around.
