It seems like the Starcraft franchise has a monopoly over the entire RTS industry. The only other RTS games with any sort of competitive scene right now are tactics games like Total War: Shogun 2 (which lack real time resource management) and awful dumbed down pseudo-RTS games like Command and Conquer 4. And those games aren't exactly bursting at the seams with players. There used to be legitimate competitive alternatives, like Age of Empires, Supreme Commander and Red Alert 2. Now the entire RTS genre seems centralized around this one game.
It seems like every other genre in video games is giving players some sort of variety (heck, even FPS players have Battlefield as an alternative to Modern Warfare now), but for RTS games I can't find any alternatives at all. Other than the next Command and Conquers Generals game (which will at least be a year before release), does anyone know of any competitive RTS games coming out in the near future which I might be interested in playing?
Suggestions (or comments) would be appreciated).
