There’s a rumour going around that EA’s actually gotten off their lazy asses and is working on a patch for Zero Hour. It’s second-hand information, but if it actually did come from Harvard Bonin it’s probably true.
If they’d actually come out with this, oh, about six months ago, I’d have been a happy camper. Unfortunately for them, they’ve f*cked up their karma so much since the last ZH patch that this non-announcement has to be greeted with a heaping tablespoon of skepticism. Hell, they could put a big splash page announcing it on EA.com’s front door and I still wouldn’t believe it. Even if it is true, it should be very obvious to everyone that this is a PR initiative in advance of Red Alert 3.
OTOH, maybe Havok, Ace and I can finally have some online ZH multiplayer games again.
