GamesCom 2012: Bioware and Electronic Arts have announced what was to be Command & Conquer: Generals 2 will now be folded into a larger C&C project.

The larger project, dubbed simply as Command & Conquer, will be free-to-play.

Bioware is describing Command & Conquer as a platform, a service and a client-based game all in the same breath, which doesn't really give us any real information but does point to the fact that the game will be online-based.

The components which were to be Generals 2 will apparently only be a small part of this new Command & Conquer, which will comprise many story-led sections when the platform/service/client-based game launches next year.

Generals 2 (pictured) was set to be built entirely on DICE's Frostbite 2 engine.

Very little extra information on the larger ideas behind Command & Conquer have been released, but we'll be catching up with EA at GamesCom 2012 tomorrow and will report back anything we can.

Until then, let us know what you think in the forums and be sure to check out all our other news from GamesCom 2012.
