Some of us have heard the rumors, some of us haven't. I noticed there wasn't a forum topic so I thought I'd create one for us to discuss the situation, given that the rumors appear to be credible.

In case you haven't heard, it appears as though a significant number of Relic employees working on COH2--possibly the entire COH2 team--have been laid off. I'm sure we'll see this confirmed or refuted in the next few days, but I thought it would be good to have a place to discuss the implications for the future of COH2.

Also, assuming the rumors are true, good luck and God bless to Brad and Kyle and everyone else affected.

Yes, we definitely need some drama based on fake twitter account, because this community doesn't have enough reasons to shit itself on a daily basis and then take a bile bath. :snfBarton:

I don't think you were watching the ESL streams. It's much more than just one tweet which, yes, was probably faked.

What's the source of that?


I heard from unknown sources that Relic decided to become a Tea company instead, that Brad decided to make his own TV show, and Kyle has invested in a London company and became millionaire overnight. Quote me on this.

Multiple people saying they spoke directly with Brad and Kyle.

Again, at this point, just rumors. But they seem to be credible rumors.

I'm going to break the NDA on this, but when I was in Vancouver recently, I managed to take this picture at their office:



Yes, Relic is becoming a Tea brand. Tea is really popular!

I heard they've moved to selling highly delicious organic onions to men who are very enthusiastic about that vegetable.

Just because something goes viral doesn't mean its not fake.

If there are idiots actually believing stuff like this, too bad for them, they'll buy anything.

And fake twitch account screenshots are hardly are creditable sources.
Community doesn't lack in hardcore trolls as well.

In fact, I've talked to Kyle myself, he had ravioli on dinner. Ravioli is square shaped. Square has 4 corners. CoH4 confirmed.

Don't be quick to call people idiots.

Relic had layoffs recently, confirmed with a few devs. Not mentioning who did unless they want to mention it themselves.

Even if its true I guess there is no point in discussing this until its made official.

He's the king? Well, I didn't vote for him.

I talked to Kyle, and he confirmed to me that he is a millionaire and that Relic moved into tea. He's an extract of the discussion:


<Kyle> I am a millionaire now, that's enough money to buy me things!
<Relic> We are investing into tea now, it makes lots of moneys!


It's not fake. Kyle confirmed that too.

<Kyle> I believe that what JohnSmith said is certainly not fake!

If what you say is true, RIP CoH2.
