You may have picked up yesterday on various reports that spoke of the first screenshot from Command and Conquer 3 being accidentally leaked. As things turn out, the image, which for legal reasons we cannot show, was genuine, meaning that the game is alive and kicking.
“What you saw was a concept/inspirational piece of art that we did over a year ago that displays on our internal EA monitors here at EALA,” said a spokesperson from Electronic Arts Los Angeles. “Concept art is our "What if?" avenue to explore things we may or may not want to do in the future with game content, a certain look, or atmosphere/tone,” he continued. “For your information, it's an image of a Scrin Primal defending against a GDI attack on a Scrin base. Obviously, the primal is winning. And yes, there are still a bunch of us ex-Westwood guys here.”
Perhaps the best news the notoriously dedicated C&C community could have hoped for on a relatively dull Tuesday afternoon. As more breaks, we’ll keep you updated.
