When I read the part about "exploring some exciting ideas" the first thing that popped into my head was "meaning how we add microtransactions and paywalling"... it's sad really.
While I never played the first C&C, one of the first games me and my father bought was Red Alert. I still have the original box with all it's contents (and both expansions in original boxes beside it) displayed on my shelf of plastic junk.. I mean models. God I loved those games. Hated the " inside a building/commando" missions, those were so hard as a 6-8? year old who didn't speak the language lol
First actual CnC game I played was Tiberium Sun I think... the one that came out after RA. That was fun too.
RA2 was awesome and Generals was decent enough. There was a CnC around that time that still had base building, but it was already kinda weird and mediocre. The rest after that was utter junk.
I hope they don't do the same to this as they did to Dungeon Keeper. I real remaster with bug fixes and no other alterations apart from some control/ui improvements. That would be awesome!

Until we get an official remake, I can recommend this open source version of RA, Now With Zero Added MicroTransactions!
I wonder what will happen to it once EA starts remastering this as well...

I played through the first couple of missions of the main Allied and Soviet campaigns, and it worked pretty well! Great game to play on older laptops and such as well!
