Whoa, does this have anything to do with a fellow a long time back? (Yes that's me posting there. Yes, I was sad I didn't see any more from it)

After several delays, Kickstarter start next week.
Sega have set a deadline just before Microsoft E3 and/or Gamescom.







For some reason, Relic studio trademarks have been removed from early box version?:


CoH console announcement E3/Gamescom?
Along with AoE4 news, I think Relic/Sega will announce a new CoH game and Microsoft/Sega partnership for next-gen console games.
I hope they are careful how they market this. If announced in a vacuum there will be some CoH community backslash, just saying.
Personally, I won't fight this as long they don't market it as CoH3. Many PC fans, myself included expect a faithful sequel to CoH1/CoH2.

Stay tuned for new CoH trailers/CoH Online?:

Hello Relic Entertainment!
Eager to pass along some of our new material in hopes we can collaborate again.

35:00 - Quinn Duffy Console RTS

This old youtube interview is related to the Eurogamer interview:

Company of Heroes dev reckons it's solved the RTS on console problem
https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-06-02-company-of-heroes-dev-reckons-its-solved-the-rts-on-console-problem
"There was always a talk of strategy games on console," Duffy said. "We were just like, 'oh my God, how do you do that?' We think we came up with a plausible solution, which I'm not going to talk about.

"There's some stuff that's been back burnered for years because we wanted to see how technology, the market, control and touch emerged. Hopefully we will be positioned to adapt to some of that."
*SNIP*

'Company of Heroes': Relic Entertainment "open" to a console version - MAY 2012
http://www.digitalspy.com/gaming/news/a382937/company-of-heroes-relic-entertainment-open-to-a-console-version/
Relic Entertainment is "open" to the idea of Company of Heroes on a console.

General manager Alex Peters said if the studio can find a way to bring the series outside of PC it will "do it".

"RTSs (real-time strategy) have struggled to find their place on console. If we can figure out, and the timing's right, how to deliver a great experience - and I think it would be a different experience - we'll do it," he told Digital Spy.

"But, again, it has to be that we'll feel confident that we deliver that kind of experience people expect from Relic."

Relic Has the Scale and Support From Sega To Think About a Console Return, April 12, 2017
https://www.dualshockers.com/relic-scale-and-support-from-sega-to-think-about-console-return/

Relic Console Game Director + Executive Producer (most likely):
https://www.linkedin.com/in/bdisbrow
Game Director on an exciting unannounced strategy game, the kind that Relic Entertainment does best! Currently working with an excellent team to build a creative vision, game pillars and the feature set. Lots of engaging, fun work to be done and great people to do it with.

Brent Disbrow is former Smoking Gun Interactive (run by CoH1 vets).
David Littman, console/pc Executive Producer since 2017:
https://www.linkedin.com/in/david-littman-52668b27

A second game director, Erik J. Caponi are partly involved (most likely). But Relic/Sega building a brand new development team/game since early 2018. This could be CoH3.
https://www.linkedin.com/in/ecaponi/

DoW Mobile Expansion & CoH3 Plans

I think Sega/Relic's plan was to make CoH3 after studio expansion with AoE4 (former CoH2 leads) and DoW3. Some fans have joked DoW4 could be a mobile game, that's fairly accurate.
From linkedin we know they recruited at least two mobile DoW leads/Executive Producer:
https://www.linkedin.com/in/mikeswanson (2013-2014)
https://www.linkedin.com/in/iamstephenmac/ (2015-2016)
From THQ/Relic days we have Adrian Crook, cross platform leader of 'Relic labs' (2004-2008)
https://www.linkedin.com/in/adrian/
Shipped The Outfit, Relic’s first console title and THQ’s first and only Xbox 360 launch window title
Founded Relic Labs, a concept incubation group

Top mobile game consultants since 2008:

According to linkedin, CoH was on the backburner from 2015-2017.
Due to the failure of DoW3, started to rebuild CoH team in 2017 with community surveys + free CoH giveaways (both 2017 and 2018).
2017 giveaways:

2018 giveaways:
https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-12-08-company-of-heroes-2-is-free-right-now

I could be wrong. But if true, two separate CoH development teams from 2020 onwards.

Doing a quick Google led me to find this: a draft rulebook of the game.

All looks really cool, I really hope the gameplay will be fun.
I'm definitely interested in backing the Kickstarter.

Does anyone happen to know roughly what it's going to cost?

What's ironic is that even the British have a mobile mortar team and not in both of the video games lol.

They actually do have mobile one in CoH1, its a doctrinal, but its there.

Now, if the last 5-7 years has taught me anything, its that the best way to engage with a crowd founder game is to just wait for its actual release, even if it means paying more, at least you won't be stuck in a limbo of never released game. PC, board or otherwise.

You do have a point with that and they'll have a doctrinal mobile mortar here after the new commander update hits but I meant non-doctrinal, it doesn't seem to me like the support weapons being doctrinal specific in this boardgame.

I'd still get the elite commanders thing for 15 bucks just for the King Tiger models tho, wish I could also get the Elefant. Sad they don't have Tigers and Jagdtigers.

I used to play a lot with those little plastic Army Men soldiers when I was little so it's like a blast from the past for me.

Well, not yet. With the overwelming success of these early sales I wouldn't be surprised if they were putting together another expension commanders pack asap with the fan favorites Tiger/Sturmtiger/Jagdtiger/IS-2/Churchill Funnies.

I guess that makes sense.

It's also really weird for me that they're using CoH Artwork for the cover, but CoH2 Artwork for everything else, but I guess it again makes sense since the Soviets are there while they're not in the original CoH. I guess it's just strange to see a mash up of both artworks since they're vastly different in my opinion.
