Accurately predicted over 1 year ago;
IMO, Relic/Sega games will expand with new subscription services such as Xbox Game Pass/project xCloud streaming (console/pc/mobile), Apple Arcade (mobile) and/or Google Stadia streaming.

Coming Soon

The follow-up to the highest rated RTS of all time, Company of Heroes 2 is an acclaimed blend of strategy and tactics will test players’ knowledge of real-world combat. Now with five armies included to play with in multiplayer and two single-player campaigns. Cover, line of sight, armor, and fully destructible environments all must be considered to lead your troops to victory

Here's what's heading to Game Pass on PC, Xbox One, and Android in September:

CoH Community:


Relic PR/social channels is now moving like a turtle while the gaming community re-posted this news/intel days ago. :wave:
Relic's only remaining legacy (CoH, not AoE/Ensemble Studios) matters to this studio leadership?
Studio transparency?

How does RTS even work on controller? I know some games have done it, but I can't imagine CoH2 is even remotely easy to play on a controller.

There is support for keyboard and mouse on the current xbox at least. So i think that is the reason why they go consoles bow.

Zoom in on the picture, you can only play it on PC through the Windows XBOX app or Microsoft Store I assume but not on console

Its for pc only.

Iv just installed it again and now have a second COH2 account link to my xbox account ( Gotta get those gamer points).

So you have every dlc (ardinnes, theater of war and all armies) all the commanders unlocked for multiplayer which surprised me the most.

But yes, I now effectively have a smurf account.

I would like to see not a remaster but a remake. On a new engine, and there it would probably be nice to see Italians.
I absolutely see no point in remastering, only remaking. There was a recent release of a remaster of C&C, but no thanks. I'm a huge fan of C&C, but I would buy the game if it were a remake with an engine not lower than Tiberium Wars. Hopefully there will be remakes of Red Alert 2 and Tiberium Sun, these are two of my favorites.

CoH2 Steam beta update from Andy;
http://www.companyofheroes.com/blog/2020/09/17/64-bit-beta-and-update
For Steam players, Company of Heroes 2 is now available as a 64 Bit application as a beta! In the coming weeks, we intend to upgrade the live version of Company of Heroes 2 to full 64 Bit once beta testing is complete and we’re satisfied with overall quality.

We're extremely excited to bring this update to Steam users for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it should mean better stability and overall performance by resolving memory issues. It will also allow crossplay with users playing on the new Game Pass version!

Xbox players reporting the new version is more stable and doesn't crash:
https://steamcommunity.com/app/231430/discussions/0/2949251578277520058/
Piddypids
This is COH2, I have it on Xbox game pass for PC so no need for controller. But It is a newer version and doesn't crash like this one does. The XB game pass version is 4.0.0.65535. But the Steam version is 4.0.023468. The XB Game pass version seems a lot lot more stable, But is unmodable


:thumbsup:

I hope this kind of continued news (including the 64 bit upgrade, ios/android release) are signs of SEGA/MS support for the franchise...ala COH3
