The Third World War (WWIII) refers to the major, intercontinental war following the Second World War.
The Third World Wars Edit
Red Alert Edit
Two Third World Wars exist in the red alert universe. One was caused by a time travel done by the Allies to stop Yuri's plot of taking over the Earth.
- Third World War (Red Alert 2), the struggle following the Second World War.
- Third World War (Yuri's Revenge), the repeat of the war caused by time-travelling Allies attempting to stop Yuri's Psychic Dominators from taking over the world.
There was another repeat caused by time travelling Soviets causing the War of the Three Powers, it is unknown if it is alternation of the Third World War again, or even of the Second World War.
When Red Alert 3 was released, it was believed that the time travel took place during Red Alert 2/Yuri's Revenge but when Electronic Arts released the Red Alert iPhone game, which is a sequel to Yuri's Revenge and a prequel to Red Alert 3, it was revealed that time travel took place after the events of Yuri's Revenge, at the of the Post-war Crisis.
Red Alert 1 (AKA "World War II") was originally supposed to be the prequel to the Tiberium Universe, but the idea was scrapped shortly before the release of the game. The red alert franchise then diverged and branched off into a separate universe after RA1. Therefore, the First Tiberium War (or whatever preceded it, if there was another major international conflict in between) can be considered as a "Third World War" in a way.
