Since Relic is likely to keep the CoH franchise within the confines of the WW2 spectrum and not anywhere else like Korea, Vietnam or even the more recent modern contemporaries like Iraq or Afghanistan. I wonder which theater of war will they do next because i am beginning to see a predictable pattern in the majority of WW2 games that have been made: they all take place in the European Theater of Operations be it France, Africa, Italy, Sicily, The Netherlands, i could go on. Instead Relic should try something different and unpredictable by making their next CoH game take place in the Pacific Theater of Operations. That theater like the Battle of Hurtgen Forest was not "widely" known to the general audience making Europe often is the center of attention.

Y'know, honestly I would love to see Relic twist the WW2 setting. I mean, maybe not Wolfenstein the New Order or War Front Turning Point level :P But some games like RUSE actually made the setting a bit more interesting by not only adding a handful of prototype units (like the Maus, ME 262 Jet Fighters, etc) but the story too where the Allies actually go to war with the Soviets to stop a German nuclear site or something that was arming its V2s with nuclear warheads.

Maybe also have a bit of 'sci-fi' or more futuristic tech like these badass Spec Ops Paratroopers

(minus the plasma weapon of course)
Or...


Maybe have the campaign begin in Britain where the British Remnants and US Army storm Nazi-occupied Britain. Just something other than the same old French/Belgian setting VOV

They did Normandy, then market garden. Then they did all of eastern front, plus battle of the bulge.

What's left?

-pacific

-Italy!

-Africa

My theory? Coh3 will be multiplayer only (with PvE compstomps) with lots of different armies you can customize. I'm thinking ruskies, usa, commonwealth, Germany, Italy, Japan, etc. all with a persistent war.

I think that time period will be 1943-1945 as well

Whatever it is, I hope they learn from all the mistakes made with CoH2.

The only thing they will learn is that you can get more money out of Free2Play titles.

Its quite simple really.

There will be DoW3 and after that, either SC3 in another 20 years but with graphics from last year or/and death of the genre for good.

I'd go with something outside of WW2. Preferably cold/modern war.

The problem with WW2 and CoH is that people expect certain units in the game. They expect panthers and tigers. They expect a 1944-45 setting. It's the stuff that's most known about. Eventually you end up making the same game with a different coat of paint.

CoH 3 will come out about 2020, DoW III is next in line for production, possibly releasing next year, possibly in three years, but everything points to DoW III being the next release.

Unless they surprise us all with Space Marine 2 :snfPeter:

something i wish for future Relic games is being able to fight insight houses:

when entering a building, the roof becomes transparent and you can move insight there --> new tactical options
