Release Date & Screenshots

GameSpy has a new preview of CNC Generals up, complete with lots of new screenshots! 10 new ones, to be exact. Here's a snip of the article:
The Command & Conquer series has always been one of the RTS standards, with many copycats trying to compare themselves to what C&C has done so well -- namely, a cool story, interesting units and a lot of replayability. The latest incarnation of the series is Generals, and EA Pacific invited us in to give the single-player game the once over to see what we thought. The immediate conclusion is that Generals should add a few new wrinkles to the genre that will leave RTS wannabes again nipping at their heels.

As for the release date, Mark Skaggs said:
The game was originally slated for release around Christmas, but was delayed until Jan. 21, 2003, because of the tremendous amount of detail the team is adding to the game. "We don't want to rush it. We want to make sure we can deliver the game we want."
Well, that finally clears up release date discussions, for now anyway.
