In an interview with CNN, an EA representative has confirmed that Westwood Studios (owned by EA) is working on a Command & Conquer title for Sony's new PSP handheld.
According to the spokesperson, both the original Command & Conquer and its follow up Command & Conquer Red Alert will be released PSP.
"I've always wanted to play incredibly large scale games on the go," they explained. "For flights and road trips, I'm pretty sure the fans will be excited to hear that Command & Conquer, and Command & Conquer Red Alert will be making appearances on PSP."
"We don't have a firm release date, but the games will have to be totally revamped for PSP's UMD architecture. Nonetheless, expect the Command & Conquer franchise to make its move on PSP within this year."
So there we have it, a presumably Wi-Fi enabled Command & Conquer for PSP before the end of the year. As long as the game manages to stand up to the test of time or gets a modern makeover to fix its ageing features, this is something we're sure to be wanting later this year.
Can't wait for this one, I would love to play C&C and Red Alert on the go, too bad there's no news of a new title though. The one bad thing is the PSP's battery life, that might become a problem knowing how long some RTS missions may last. What do you guys think?
