Renegade X: Firestorm – the long in-development Tiberian Sun expansion for the free fan-built remake of Command & Conquer: Renegade – is aiming for a Summer 2022 release date, two years after the project was officially revealed.
If you didn’t know, Command & Conquer: Renegade was an ambitious first and third-person shooter spin-off from the iconic RTS series that released in 2002. It was clunky and had a poor single-player campaign, but a committed fanbase grew around the unique multiplayer.
An entirely free and fan-made Unreal engine remake of the game, Renegade X released in 2014 in open beta and has been added to ever since. In June 2020, indie developer Totem Arts announced Renegade X: Firestorm – an expansion based around the events of the alien invasion in Command & Conquer 3. Back in December, Totem Arts promised that “there are great things coming your way in 2022” – and it seems they could have been referring to Firestorm, since the developer has revealed on Discord that the expansion “is expected to release in Q2 2022”.
