Cliff Comments on C&C 3, Kucan

(Thanks PCNC) Cliff 'Devinoch' Hicks, famed former Westwood Studio has been keeping a blog, and had some comments on the C&C 3 announcements, including:
If some of the things I saw printed on the internet are true, Joe may harbor a lot of resentment to EA (...) and I don't blame him. He put in a lot of hard work and got the short end of the stick. EA drove a lot of people to the brink of madness, not just once but several times. Some of the people who've gone back to EA say it's changed, but as the expression goes, once bitten...

All that said, I hope they do get Joe to come back and reprise his role as Kane. It wouldn't be Kane without Joe. And Joe, if you're reading this, ask for a truckload of money. You've earned it. From one of your former colleagues and still one of your fans (and hopefully still at least a little bit your friend) , I hope this finds you well.
Prior to this C&C 3 announcement, Kucan had made it very clear that he would never again take the role of Kane. Generals World managed to get an interview with him last year (that no, we're not sharing yet) for a project of ours, and he commented about his role of Kane and the future of C&C. I'm sure EA has had or will have discussions with him, but I think that he's going to have to be really well compensated (at least) to become our favorite madman again....
