No C&C4 LAN or Dedicated Servers

There will be no LAN or dedicated server support for Command & Conquer 4, reports Destructoid, as the presence or absence of these two features has become a hot topic for PC gaming. Now dedicated server support in RTS games is not the same issue as in other genres (for instance Command & Conquer 3 had no dedicated servers either), but the lack of LAN support continues a troubling trend. Lack of LAN support goes unexplained, but here's word on the dedicated servers from lead designer Sam Bass: "across single-player, multiplayer and skirmish and all the information is stored in a server. So if you go to another machine -- friend’s house, Internet café -- whatever, you can login with your profile and all the stuff you’ve unlocked is accessible to you there. It all lives on a server so you can’t really do dedicated servers with that."

It prolly isnt doomed. There will always be browser games, MMOs and maybe console ports. But PC gaming, as it once was is already as good as dead. There are only very few games left that have the complexity, options, gameplay, graphics, etc. that PC games were once known for.

Commercialized, yes. Open Source, there is a lot on the table.

Yeah and such games will be very rare. Not enough to keep PC gaming being my hobby.
Also I highly doubt that those will be very good games since there simply wont be enough money to make quality games. PC games cost a lot of money, even more so if you want good quality and no game that is over after 5 hours.
