Here the 8 facts:




1. On July/17 Relic asked to community about differences between CoH1 vs CoH2:

https://www.coh2.org/topic/62130/relic-wanted-feedback-for-coh1-vs-coh2


2. On October-November/17 Relic asked about a campaign at North African/Italian front in CoH franchise and about CoH Future:

https://www.coh2.org/topic/63918/relic-survey-about-coh2-future

https://www.coh2.org/topic/65982/relic-send-another-survey-about-campaign


3. On Feb/18 Relic announces they leaving DoW3 behind:

https://www.coh2.org/topic/67741/relic-leaves-dawn-of-war-3-behind



4. On April/18 A new announced game was related in a Relic artist on Linkedin profile:

https://www.coh2.org/topic/70400/coh-3-confrimed



5. Capiqua spotted days ago the CoH2 Beta version got an update on Steam Database after several years without update:

https://www.coh2.org/topic/71104/new-relic-office-lease-of-the-year/page/1#post_id679911

And the private beta test too:

https://steamdb.info/search/?a=app&q=company+of+heroes+2&type=-1&category=0

https://steamdb.info/app/231550/



6. Some days ago I asked about new content to CoH2 like the Ardennes Assault Multiplayer maps and got a a enigmatic Relic response:

https://www.coh2.org/topic/81060/ardeness-assault-mp-maps-into-automatch/page/1#post_id686926


7. Yesterday Cobra spotted an update on the old CoH Online (CoH1 free to play) game domain:

https://www.reddit.com/r/CompanyOfHeroes/comments/8tv8xh/relic_update_coh_online_domain/.compact

and speculating about a mobile game:

https://www.reddit.com/r/CompanyOfHeroes/comments/8tv8xh/relic_update_coh_online_domain/e1az4wx/



8. Relic will anounce something related about the next update in the next days:

http://www.companyofheroes.com/blog/2018/06/19/coh2-5-year-anniversary-pro-am

https://www.coh2.org/topic/81024/return-of-relic-pro-am-and-there-will-be-a-new-update/post/687460







So what do you think?


Another CoH2 DLC? CoH3 confirmed? CoH2 going Free to play?


Or


Nothing!!! :D

My guess is some skins related to saving some Canadian animal. Probs skunks.

Slogan could be : "stink up the place, just like your favourite Relicans" or some other shit.

For once I agree with you, but I can assure you I'll throw money at Relic if they expand the workshop and do an Italian/Eastern Front for CoH, an Italian front expansion was planned but they scrapped it in favor of CoH Online which was a huge waste if you ask me and Eastern Front is already all made, since as you said, they won't be getting anymore money from CoH2, might as well go back to something that they might get something out of it.

Picture this...

New version of Essence engine, re-done art(some) assets ported from coh2, add Italian faction, Mediterranean campaign.
We already know you can port assets from Coh1 into coh2, IMO its possible to port Coh2 assets into the next build as IMO they are still using essence.

CoH3/Online - Multi-theater company of heroes "games as a service" with payable cosmetics and armies.




Relic: Split in two with one side working on AOE4 with Microsoft, the other working with SEGA on CohO / Coh3.

Just for clarification. Why the speculation on CoH2 going FREE TO PLAY?


Because this:



7. Yesterday Cobra spotted an update on the old CoH Online (CoH1 free to play) game domain:

Sturmtiger Cobra has proven that it is a reliable source when talked about Relic. ;)

The main game might go free2play (base) but only right before COH3 is released in order to increase sales. The base game is near-free anyways. It's only a few bucks right now to buy on steam. Commanders are how they make money and keep supporting the game (along with the other DLC) so if they make it all free; that means they aren't supporting COH2 anymore :(

Did DOW3 use a different engine from COH2? I would love if they dispensed with the engine all together and started from scratch or even used COH1 engine to deal with all the major spaghetti code issues COH2 has from it's THQ-bankruptcy-influenced development cycle. The pathfinding and relatively high unit latency are deeply frustrating still (among many other issues).

A nice clean launch with a relatable campaign and story along with some fun multiplayer modes would be nice.

If they wanted to excite the fanbase and bring more people in they could literally make a 25 second trailer with the theme of coh3 for 20 seconds, and the last 5 just being the title "Company of Heroes 3".

Yes but Andy said the announcement will be a patch. Nothing about aoe4 or coh3. I just can say wait until relic will tell it out, it will be a great patch!
