Company of Heroes 3 Delayed to February 2023

SEGA and Relic Entertainment have announced that Company of Heroes 3 has been delayed to February 23, 2023.

Initially scheduled to launch on November 17, the team at Relic Entertainment has cited the need for additional time to work on overall improvement, balancing, and fine-tuning of the game to meet player expectations and resulting in the deepest tactical experience yet.

Ever since Company of Heroes 3 was revealed last year, Relic has been in constant communication with players through CoH-Development, a community platform designed to receive feedback on all areas of the game. The dev team has gathered valuable information and feedback, and some have even been implemented in the game.

Some of these features and improvements now included in Company of Heroes 3 are:

  • Relic has made distinct improvements to its brand-new Dynamic Campaign Map, such as updating its new supply system, implementing a more aggressive AI, and seeing faster travel across the map through seaport and airport enhancements.
  • The studio has added a stronger focus on visual grit and details during battles, by improving shader technology and finetuning. Additionally, Relic has made significant changes to the overall lighting of CoH3.
  • Relic has enhanced moment-to-moment gameplay by making changes to the camera positioning and providing clearer mini-map information. Improvements are also being made to the HUD layout and the overall theming of the UI.
  • Seeing players experiment with the Multiplayer Pre-Alpha in November 2021 really helped the developers make significant improvements on Battlegroups, their upgrade trees, units, and call-in abilities.
  • Relic has reviewed and improved parts of the voice-over lines to ensure they are authentic to specific characters and their native accents featured in the game.

“Working with the CoH-Dev community over the last years has been an invaluable experience and we’re
immensely grateful for all of their contributions to CoH3 so far”,
said Justin Dowdeswell, General Manager at Relic Entertainment. “We want to deliver the biggest and most immersive game in our franchise’s history,
which means we need a bit more time for bug fixing, balancing, and polishing to ensure our players have a
fantastic experience at launch.”

Company of Heroes 3 is now scheduled to launch in February 23, 2023.
