After introducing the next C&C game with a placeholder numbered title, EA Los Angeles has settled on a name that only slightly evokes thoughts of sparkly vampires: Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight.
EA let the fans choose the name they felt best fit the game, and I'd say the fans made a very wise choice. Twilight fits quite nicely, both as a reference to this being the final chapter in Command & Conquer's Tiberium Saga and in regards to humanity's impending extinction at the onset of the game. Command & Conquer 4 producer Mike Glosecki agrees.
"Our sophisticated fans are a tremendous community with a great love for the series. We really wanted to involve them in Command &Conquer 4 – what better way than to have them create the title? "We were blown away by all the creative names they came up with but the most popular selection, Tiberian Twilight, seemed the best fit, embodying that the saga is coming to a powerful and epic conclusion."
And there you have it. The fans have chosen, and now they wait for Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight's 2010 release. Sure makes for some sexy box art, doesn't it?
