An unsurprising but welcome announcement at the VGAs last night was Bioware's newest project, Command and Conquer Generals 2. It marks the first time Bioware's tried its hand at the strategy genre, and the first Command and Conquer Generals title since the original came out eight years ago.

A press release describes the premise: "In Command & Conquer Generals 2, world leaders are mere seconds away from signing a peace treaty and bringing an end to a global war when a devastating terrorist attack rips through the conference, killing everyone in attendance, leaving only the world’s military superpowers in control. It’s up to you to assume their roles, take command of their forces and conquer global terrorism once and for all. Players will take control of three unique factions in a thrilling single-player campaign, and with friends online in cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes."

It'll feature single player and online co-op and competitive multiplayer. It sounds epic, and we've got hope that Bioware can do the legendary series justice. Command and Conquer Generals 2 comes out exclusively for PC some time in 2013.

Can Bioware do the series justice or will they pull a Dragon Age 2? Check out our VGA awards recap for all the winners and let us know what you think in the comments or on Twitter or Facebook.
