Default Command and Conquer PC remasters.

They're contracting the work to former Westwood employees. Oh EA.

EA has announced that its recently revealed Command & Conquer remasters are to be helmed by Petroglyph Games, a developer founded by key members of the original C&C team at the long-defunct Westwood Studios.
Now, writing in a new post to the Command & Conquer subreddit, Vessella has confirmed that EA's remaster programme will begin with Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn, Command & Conquer: Red Alert, and expansion packs Covert Ops, Counterstrike, and Aftermath. These will be bundled into a single remastered collection, with no micro-transactions to be found.
Vessella also acknowledged that there had been a "healthy skepticism" within the community regarding EA's announced remasters. "How are we possibly going to remaster these titles while maintaining the authenticity of the original experiences?," he continued, "Bottom line, there is no better way to achieve this than to partner with some of the talented developers who brought these original games to life."
To that end, EA has enlisted the help of Petroglyph Games, which counts Command & Conquer co-creator (and lead programmer on Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert) Jo Bostic among its ranks, as well as Red Alert lead programmer Steve Tall, Mike Legg, and original C&C community manager Ted Morris. Additionally, Petroglyph separately confirmed that audio director Frank Kepacki, who composed much of the music for the Command & Conquer, will be involved.
Elsewhere in Vessella's post, Jo Bostic shared a few words on Petroglyph's involvement in the new Command & Conquer remasters, explaining that the studio is "eager to provide an experience that takes advantage of enhanced connectivity, graphics features, and other technology improvements that weren't around back in 1995". As the team formulates its initial development plan, he continued, "I'm eager to hear what else fans are looking for."
If this is handled correctly they can have all my money.

Hopefully we get a new C&C game out of this down the road

One of the best things about the game is the soundtrack no doubt, I still listen to it today.
Thinking of buying the remastered version but afraid it will ruin it for me.

Interested to see how these turn out! The soundtracks were incredible. I'm most intrigued as to whether the FMV cutscenes will be restored in some way.
