I think considering the impact the series had on the shape RTS games to come, it is only right that the PC community gets a remastered version, at the very least. Given the size of Electronic Arts they could do so much with a modern C&C title. With strong multiplayer communities built around Starcraft 2 an RTS game by Blizzard, I think Command & Conquer is an ideal title to move online.
