You can definitely try
, there may
be a few developers that designed Gens/ZH still working in the company. I don't mean to destroy anyone's hopes here... but the people in power there won't likely buy into it.
if they go make a new game just on blind then it's all from scratch up, I was thinking putting up an open letter with all the pros reasons that would appeal to executives and investors how can it benefit in other areas and how the long term consequences may be while they may not get direct revenue from releasing the source code
What would those reasons be? EA is a modern triple A software conglomerate, and Generals is a nearly forgotten 13 year old game that is their property. The likelihood of EA spending fractions of their time (even if the issue gets noticed by somebody with power) on releasing the source code to a small community of modders, I'm sorry, is probably nill. I won't say you can't do it though, there is a chance (even if slim) that it'll be released, others have done it before, but with EA it's not exactly feasible.
Seems like my account didn't survive the forum migrations, I'm Stewox!
Wait, so you left before the migration, and come back years later?!
