As part of the 25th anniversary, Relic has also revived Armor of Heroes, the Sega-published retro take on Company of Heroes developed by The Eccentric Ape. It pits players against each other or AI in top-down multiplayer tank-battle skirmishes. The game was released for a limited time in 2020, and if you want to grab the free new version you’ll need to sign up for an account on the Company of Heroes development community (CoHDev) website.

Relic Entertainment is currently developing the third entry in the Company of Heroes franchise. Company of Heroes 3 will take players to the Italian mountains and North African deserts, with playable US and British armies, supported by Commonwealth forces and the Italian resistance. Multiplayer will also allow players to take command of the German and Italian axis forces. The Campaign tasks players with taking control of a strategic map of the Mediterranean, establishing supply lines that will enable them to take part in real-time strategy battles. The game has gone through multiple multiplayer tests in recent years, but there's no sign of a release date just yet.
