Company Of Heroes 3 officially announced for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series consoles

Company Of Heroes 3 officially announced for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series consoles

Announced during The Game Awards, it's been confirmed that Company of Heroes will be coming to consoles for the first time ever in 2023.

That’s right, it’s actually happening - Company of Heroes 3 is officially making its way to consoles, for the first time in the franchise’s history. Announced tonight (9 December) during The Game Awards, the highly anticipated real-time strategy game will be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in 2023.

Company of Heroes 3 was exciting enough in the first place - we already knew that the game is launching on PC on 23 February 2023 (nearly a decade after Company of Heroes 2) and will apparently be “bigger and better than ever”, complete with the “the biggest single player campaign in franchise history” and the an “unprecedented level of strategic choice”.

Although the series has never ventured over to the world of consoles before, there were already whispers that it could be doing so this time around. Last month, Company of Heroes 3 was rated for the PS5 and Xbox Series consoles by the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee which certainly raised a few eyebrows, but there was always the chance that it was an error. Thankfully though, this turned out to be accurate.

As for how the controls will be adapted, players will be pleased to know that everything is being built from the ground up specifically for consoles - according to a press release, the title will feature “a newly designed controller scheme allowing for maximum precision on the battlefield”. The UI is also being redesigned in order to improve the experience - the button layouts will apparently be more intuitive, and everything will be more readable.

However, the game won’t be releasing simultaneously across PC and consoles - PC users will get access to it first, and it’ll release on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S later in 2023. All in all though, it’s a huge win, and will allow even more people to get stuck into the franchise.
