Electronic Arts registered fifteen domain names late last week, and they're all related to the Command and Conquer, making a new entry in the long-running strategy series all but confirmed. The game is likely to be called "Alliances," as each of the URLs, such as commandandconquer-alliances.com and redalertalliances.com, features the subtitle.

PC Gamer speculates that the domain registrations are related to an upcoming game from "a new BioWare studio," set to be revealed during the Spike TV Video Game Awards. So far, little is known about BioWare's upcoming game, but the military setting and strategy genre make it a likely candidate. Here's the latest video tease:

This year's show will air on December 10th at 8PM EST, and will also feature new footage of Metal Gear Solid: Rising.

        I sure as hell hope not, or a console FPS. They just need to reboot this series properly,the last one was horrible imo. Blizzard did it with StarCraft, why can't Bioware do it with C&C, right?

          Those companies are not at all in the same league, imo. Bioware's decent, but they're no Blizzard.

        a C&C RPG sounds interesting IMO. though bioware doesnt make real RPG's anymore, i think they could do something interesting with C&C and the sort of games they make nowadays.

        imagine playing a commando from C&C, infected with tiberium and getting mutations and shit. that could be your "level ups" or whatever. you start out as as GDI loyalist but KANE wants you because of your unique mutations, and its up to your choices who you end up siding with.

            OMG. a Sole Survivor remake....BRILLIANT. Maybe they can also remix the original C&C theme song using some dubstep to promote the product.

      If I worked for EA and I wasn't part of Bioware or DICE today I would be asking: "What am I? Chopped Liver?"

      EA needs to stop making these fucking games and sell the license. CNC is dead and they killed it themselves.

        Megapublishers rarely sell off old IP; they just sit on it forever, in the hopes that they can reuse it years later for a retcon / noscon (Syndicate, X-COM, Spyro the Dragon).

        It's overdue. But they just about managed to do the first one before the political correctness wave crashed ashore.

      If you pause the video and look at the tanks, they sort of look like modified Predator tanks from CnC3: Tiberium Wars.

      (I think they were called predator tanks it has been a while since I played that game. If they're not called predator tanks then it looks like whatever the basic tank was called)

        it really looks like C&C Generals 2, those trucks getting hit with the explosions look like GLA units

          Yea, it clearly is some kind of C&C Generals game, but in the video i cant tell if it will be an FPS or a RTS.

      I am excited to be joining the studio making this title as a software engineer in January. I think you all will be excited by what you see on the 10th; I know I will be.
