I am a bit worried as well Rob from hearing about this. But perhaps something positive will come out of it. Maybe if RA3 is canceled and they feel that the c&c series isn't that profitable, perhaps they will put it for sale Grin . Granted yes, I am playing a little bit of the devils advocate and being highly optimisic and maybe a little delusional, but hey, you never know right?

Seems to me there may be ALOT of uncovered conflict within EALA about the future of C&C...

What confuses me is why both original Westwood Las Vegas employees AND Westwood LA (the EA guys) staff are leaving, I'd say the conflict has been caused because of the choice of RA3 over Tiberian Twilight but that doesn't explain the Westwood LA staff leaving.

Maybe Petroglyph would buy the C&C name, maybe it would be better that way.

Very unlikely; there's no company in the world that could afford to buy C&C off EA - they aren't that stupid, they realise how much money there is in the series.

And even if EA do decide to ditch C&C, they won't sell the rights to it as they know they could potentially create a good rival to their products.

Infact, that could well be the idea in the first place, knock out the rivals by buying them out and then kill off their games, holding onto the legalities so as to make sure they will never be a threat again.

Geez, I would say you were wrong Waraddict if it wasn't true, but big companies outside of gaming as well do that, buy the compeition and kill it off to make sure it is no longer a threat, I hope it doesn't come to that, perhaps one day EA will topple, but that is a far off prospect.
