Fans of the Command & Conquer series have reason to rejoice today, as EA has announced the Command & Conquer: The Ultimate Collection. The collection aims to bring in all 17 seventeen games from the past 17 years of the series into one convenient package. The games will come with Windows 7 compatibility, making the process of trying to get older games to run much less of a hassle.

EA V.P. Jon Van Caneghem followed up excitement for the series with marketing vernacular by saying:

 As long time fans of the Command & Conquer franchise, we are excited to be able to help celebrate the legacy of the series with this compilation. Our passion for this fantastic portfolio is helping drive us as we deliver the next great Command & Conquer experience next year
