Based on previous posts by Eric, the sales of the CoH:AtB PC game over this Holiday Season combined with the sales of the CoH: Storms of Steel PC game early next year (2013), will determine the fate of the PC game franchise.
I tried to do my part by buying two friends (whom play the board game) each a copy of the PC game (it's on sale for 25% off right now) as a gift. Hopefully there are others who have done similar things and/or the new sales are strong.
As for other theaters, I've already pre-ordered my board game copy of Guadalcanal. It looks interesting and while I am significantly less interested in the Pacific Theater compared to the European Theater, Guadalcanal is the one big exception. It is a fascinating campaign and one I look forward to exploring using the CoH system.
On the other hand, the next planned board game after Guadalcanal is First Men In (D-Day Airborne Operations). As of now, I do not plan on purchasing that. Those operations have been covered in a great deal of depth in other game systems plus I have significantly less interest in gaming the D-Day campaigns (I've done plenty of reading on them). Instead I would have liked to see a game on the Axis airborne Invasion of Crete. It is much less covered, tactically more interesting in my opinion, and contains Fallschirmjägers (for me the most interesting units of WW2). That last one is a personal bias but heck, what can I do?
I did hear rumors of a Afrika Korps board game at some point. But again I would prefer a Crete based game first. Or even a Battle of Norway or The Finnish - Soviet Winter War.
