Breaking News: Next C&C Confirmed (by IGN)

In an article on IGNPC (who seem to be EA's new go-to PR place), detailing the coming RTSs of 2006, there is the following snip:
Command & Conquer: The Next Title

What is it?: What we know about this game is that it's 'in the works'. What we don't know is pretty much everything else. We've learned a few other things recently however. We know that EA's VP of Creative Development Louis Castle seems to be very fond of the Tiberium universe in the C&C series so we may see that... but considering the popularity of the Red Alert universe, we're guessing that actually might be where the next game will take place. A recent podcast with Louis Castle and Mike Verdu showed that both are very excited about the possibilities of an RTS MMO (though that's not likely for this next one) as well. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see EA LA build on the things that they've done right with the Battle for Middle-earth franchise. For instance, a strategic world map for a large Red Alert game could be possible. We won't see it released this year, but we may finally learn something as the year progresses.

Well, a title has been confirmed. However, RA3 was 'confirmed' back in December 2004. I don't think EA will make the same mistake twice, but I don't think we'll see another C&C for at least a year anyway.
