If there is one thing I learned about Supreme Commander while at Gas Powered Games for my preview of it it's that the universe the game takes place in is huge, and with Squares Enix's new push for more story focused games in the series it seems that we might be exploring that universe in new ways. When chatting with David Hoffman, Director of Business Development and Executive Producer on Supreme Commander 2, he mentioned that the one of the reasons Square Enix decided to publish the game is that they saw the possibility to move into new genres.

"I felt that RTS is something that really stands on its own two feet and can evolve itself into other genres. I'm referring to what Blizzard did with Warcrraft," he said. When pressed a little further about expanding the series he noted, "I think Square Enix has a long term vision for any franchise that it develops. If [Supreme Commander] is a successful hit we would like to see it evolve. Into what is still being talked about. We want to take it one step at a time."

In case you're worried about the franchise being ripped out of Gas Powered's hands, they're interested in the idea of expanding the franchise as well. So what about it? Could Supreme Commander be Square Enix's major Western franchise.
