World Battle 2 has been postponed. Firm of Heroes 3, the following entry in Relic’s totemic RTS collection, has been hit by a delay with barely a month to go till its authentic launch date. As an alternative of releasing on November 17, Firm of Heroes 3 will come out on February 23, 2023, round 4 months from now.

Relic is being fairly forthright concerning the causes for the delay: the game simply is not as much as snuff but. Within the further few months’ growth time, the dev group will likely be centered completely on fixing bugs, tweaking mechanics, and sharpening up what’s already there. “Over the following 4 months we won’t be including any new options,” the delay announcement reads, “Now it’s only a matter of tuning and sharpening the whole lot to ship on that core expertise”.

The devs have repeatedly emphasised the extent to which followers have formed Firm of Heroes 3’s growth, and Relic is framing the delay the identical method. The announcement encompasses a checklist of tweaks, fixes and enhancements that the devs have already made on the idea of fan suggestions, and guarantees that the back-and-forth will proceed with “week-to-week” updates within the time between now and February 23.

Followers are being inspired to contain themselves within the game’s growth on the Firm of Heroes boards and Discord, although there most likely is not time for one more player-invented faction within the subsequent 4 months. Hey, perhaps in Firm of Heroes 4.

We have already had some hands-on time with Firm of Heroes 3, and we loved what we noticed. PCG technique connoisseur Fraser Brown had a whale of a time with the bloody mayhem of its multiplayer pre-alpha, not less than when he wasn’t composing odes to the game’s tanks. It is a disgrace, then, that we’ll have to attend an additional few months to see Firm of Heroes 3 in its full glory, however even a protracted delay is healthier than it being rushed out half-baked.
