While it's certainly far from earth-shattering news, I'll bet there are more than a few gamers out there who will be pleased to know that Command & Conquer 4 is apparently currently in development; shocking as that might be.
However, as Joystiq reports, a pre-press release Tweet sent out by EA seemingly confirms that Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 developer EA Los Angeles is working on the new title.
You might remember that a few weeks ago a survey popped up online asking players what they would want out of a new C&C game. So again, this latest news is hardly unexpected. The bigger question here is why the info appeared via Twitter before an official press release was issued. I contacted EA to find out what might have happened, so I'll let you know when I find out more.
