This happens all the time, don't throw a pitched fit.

Here’s a new slice of gameplay footage taken from Command & Conquer’s campaign. Accompanying the new video, development director Tim Morten answered a few questions about the new game in an EA post.
One of his more interesting comments is that the story hasn’t been written yet; many people don’t realise that developers often design the arc of a campaign mode independently of the plot, and then tack something on afterwards. it works out, sometimes.
What story there is takes place directly after the original Generals – the free-to-play game was originally titled Generals 2 – and will concern the Global Liberation Army, with the European Union taking over from the US faction and the Asia Pacific Alliance has replaced the China faction. Later, there’ll be stories from the Tiberium setting. About a third of the units in the game are carried over from Generals, while a third are new and a third are modified.
Command & Conquer is expected by the end of spring. That’s our spring, not the northern hemisphere’s.
