Still no news, no news at all...
It's because he has no news.
A balance patch would however be nice, getting some gameplay change would draw some people back to vCoH, but then again i don't think that's what Relic wants.
They want their precious CoH2 to get more players, even though it sucks ass compared to vCoH in every possible existing way and Relic knows this.
Exactly they have no reason to invest resources in a game which doesn't earn them money. (COH HD ...etc discussion all over again.)
While COH2 can still earn them money. Even if it's a lesser quality product.
