It is a sad day.On the survey, they are asking us what can be done better in NEXT DOW.Not in dow3.
I would't read THAT much into it really. I don't think Relic would simply pull the plug after just 6 months. BUT if they are moving on from DoW3 then that is indeed sad. I like DoW3 and I'd like to see more content for the game in the form of expansion packs, skins and Elites.
Based on the wording of the survey, they could be referring to a DoW expansion. It's possible. Also, they did not ask what could be done "better," (which implies they think DoW3 sucks). They asked what you think is critical to a future DoW game and what advice you would give to relic.
Also the fact they are asking this question now means that, whatever they are going to use this data for has not even been planned out yet or started in anyway. To me, this in no way suggests they are giving up on DoW3 since they already have those plans are most likely implementing them NOW.
Also, I think you may be projecting onto this question too much. I think this section of the survey was trying to talk to the people that did not buy/play DoW3. In that sense, they are asking these people what kind of game WOULD they buy. This does not necessarily mean they plan to cut off support for DoW3 in anyway, but rather are just trying to gather information from the people the saw their game but said "No Thanks."
People asked for dow1(dork crusade) but what they really mean is reskinned coh with total war stile campaign... or well I should just say reskinned ardennes assault(can we can we get some update to play as germans too?).
Doing expansion could help but at the end it will be the same game people ++heresy redacted++ talked about but with more content.
There is also nice tip to relic, don't use the name of your popular franchise to make something "new" "different" people will ++heresy redacted++ on you because it's isn't the same even if the game is good.
I had some good example but I can't remember them right now, lets say it's exactly what happened to dow2 and 3 of course.
Redirecting discussion over here, a less loaded title for debate!
