Warren Spector Was Once Working on a Command and Conquer RPG With EA

Command and Conquer may have received something like a new lease on life as of late, but during the long years that the franchise had been left to rot, lots of things happened. Such as, for example, a Command and Conquer cancelled RPG game!

That’s not even the best part, mind. The best part is that it was supposed to be headed by none other than Warren Spector – the man behind Thief: The Dark Project, System Shock, and Deus Ex! This Command and Conquer RPG was sadly dismissed by EA.

The Command and Conquer Warren Spector game was, according to Spector himself, going to be a true immersive sim: It was going to look a lot like Deus Ex,” he said. I had a lot of the gameplay and the vision was there. It was going to be set in a very different world.”

Spector continued: “That choice and consequence and recovery style where you could see a problem, pause, make a plan, execute, see the result, make a plan, execute… all that stuff that made Deus Ex Deus Ex, and the deep narrative.”

This first-person RPG never really got much further than its ideational stage, but it’s a lovely thing to think about nonetheless. Spector offered no reasoning as to why the project was cancelled, though it doesn’t matter much anyway.
