As many of you are eagerly anticipating the release of Season 6 it’s time to give you a glimpse of what the near future holds for CONNew Maps
Following the release of Battlegrounds USA our map designers have been hard at work on the next map which will be focusing on the Western Theatre. More details will follow as the map moves closer to a release date.
New Unit Feature
Over the past months the team has been overhauling several mechanics in preparation for a new feature, Deploy Armament: Units equipped with this feature will be able to deploy various armaments to the battlefield wherever they are. The introduction of Deploy Armament will finally allow us to create content that has been frequently discussed over the years (remember landmines?) and we hope it will open the door to many new, exciting strategies!
The big question: So Where’s Season 6?
We are aiming for a release by late March/early April. As you might have guessed by now, the launch of Season 6 won’t just feature an ordinary unit, it will also be the debut of the Deploy Armament feature. After the last testing round by the design team we decided on a new approach to the balancing and implementation of the unit. While this decision contributed to a further delay of the new season we believe it was a necessary one in order to ensure the new unit finds its place in the game.
Our team is hard at work identifying and fixing issues that are cropping up on some mobile devices, especially the reported blank screens and timeouts.
- To boost this effort we have called in external reinforcements who help us test and compile detailed logging on affected devices.
- Fixing these issues is our top priority at the moment. Unfortunately, this has significantly contributed to the delay of Season 6.
The CON family has been growing steadily this year, onboarding more developers to help tackle the challenges ahead. Besides the ongoing efforts to improve the experience on the mobile clients, we have two major projects in the pipeline that will address the long-term experience of the game.
We'd like to personally thank everyone for their patience as Season 6 is coming together and hope this small update gives you something to look forward to in the weeks ahead!
