Command & Conquer Renegade 2: Battlegrounds is the cancelled sequel to Westwood Studios’ action shooter, planned to be released on PC by Electronic Arts. Development of Renegade 2 started immediately after the release of the first game, and the story was supposed to be set between Command & Conquer and C&C Red Alert 2.
Players would have been able to choose between first person and third person view, with the same action-focused gameplay already seen in Renegade 1. The game was divided into different missions, in which you had to destroy objectives, eliminate enemy troops or find important items.
Unfortunately in 2003 Westwood Studios were closed by EA, the team merged into EA Los Angeles and Renegade 2 was canned due to the low popularity of the first game. At the same time EA also cancelled another C&C project, an online RPG titled Command & Conquer Continuum.
Thanks to Josef for the contribution!
Hope a build of this is found some day.
Loved the original, but I went in with absolutely no expectations, just took it for what it was.
