New Command & Conquer FPS On The Way?

In a job posting on the EA Jobs website (thanks GameSpot), Electronic Arts notes that it is looking for a sound designer to join the team of a "next-generation first person shooter game." Nothing unique about that, except the summary refers to the project as "C&CX," possibly indicating that EA is taking another stab at bringing Westwood Studios' popular sci-fi strategy game franchise Command & Conquer to the shooter genre.

The game would mark the second shooter spinoff in the Command & Conquer universe, with the first being 2002's Command & Conquer: Renegade, which was met with lukewarm reception. The details in the post give no indication if the title will be a sequel to Renegade or a new spinoff, describing the project as "a high profile new intellectual property."

The next release in the Command & Conquer series will be the Tiberium Wars expansion pack Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath, retailing next year. For some old-school Command & Conquer action, download the full game of Westwood's Command & Conquer Gold on FileShack.
