In the wake of recent layoffs impacting the Company of Heroes 3 developers, the team released an update outlining their next steps for the game. Today’s announcement confirms that Relic and SEGA remain fully committed to supporting Company of Heroes 3 across both PC and console platforms, despite acknowledging areas where the game is not meeting the expectations of both the players and developers.

The release of Company of Heroes 3 Console Edition is slated for tomorrow, bringing the potential for an influx of new players into the community. A growing, supportive, and welcoming community is deemed essential for the game’s long-term sustenance.

Additionally, the Brass Leopard PC Update (1.1.5) is scheduled for release on June 6th. This update promises a new 3vs3 co-op map, gameplay modifications, enhancements to audio quality and mod tools, as well as multiple bug fixes. An overview and patch notes will be provided closer to the update’s release.

Following Brass Leopard, the Emerald Bear PC Update (1.2.0) is in its alpha stage, with a planned release for July. Due to its advanced stage in the development process, the priorities for this patch cannot be altered; however, reassessments for subsequent updates are already underway. More detailed information on the contents of this patch will be shared upon final testing completion.

In response to community feedback, the team has decided to drop “Operation” from their update names to reduce confusion regarding their size or scope.

Moving forward, the team commits to a more regular communication cadence, keeping players informed about the latest developments. Bi-weekly Wire Reports starting from June 9th will aggregate the latest game news, feature exceptional player content, provide answers to frequently asked questions, and occasionally offer insights from the developers. In addition, bi-weekly livestreams will begin on June 15th, featuring showcases, play sessions, and Q&A sessions with the Dev team.

The team eagerly awaits player feedback on their future updates, sneak peeks, before/after showcases, and livestream previews from Brass Leopard, with the intention of offering more such previews based on player response.

Looking ahead, the team is dedicated to building trust with their players and community, and as part of that commitment, they are reassessing all game priorities not already set for the June and July updates. A development priorities roadmap is currently being adapted to illustrate the upcoming content, as well as potential shifts and reconsiderations.

Among the topics currently under consideration are additional multiplayer maps, a replay feature, a vote-to-surrender option, further balance updates, plans for more content, and the potential for integrating community-made maps into the game.

The team is also crafting a long-term roadmap, featuring descriptions of planned content and target dates, which is intended to be released shortly after the July 1.2.0 PC update.

While this overview doesn’t address all community concerns, the team assures that their dedication to improving the experience for all Company of Heroes 3 players remains steadfast. The team expresses gratitude for continued support and invites players to welcome new console fans into the community, as well as to anticipate the upcoming Brass Leopard PC Update next week.
