Victory Games believes it has the tech in place to support Command & Conquer for ten years, according to an interview with VideoGamer. Command & Conquer is being developed as a live service and will be both free-to-play and require an Internet connection.

"We built this Command & Conquer shell and frame to be the one-stop place for Command & Conquer for the next 10 years, so we want to add the other universes and maybe even a new universe that we didn't even have before, all under the same landing site, log-in [and] persona that you would keep track of," Victory Games General Manager Jon Van Caneghem said.

Canegham also noted that he believes "the days of a boxed release are probably over," making an exception for any potential collector's editions of the game. Command & Conquer will launch this year for PC through EA's Origin service.
