Even before the Update it was no secret that a new troop was coming soon. Supercell actually released the new Dark Barracks on their new website back in November (and removed it quickly afterwards):
Now that Supercell has released their new game “Clash Royale” in some countries, we have a second game in the Clash Universe. It’s very likely that the new troop is a troop previously in Clash Royale, as Jonas mentioned in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoG4QDeXEeg.
So we know that the next Clash of Clans Update is a couple of weeks down the road. With the regular rhythm we could have expected the Update at the end of February or beginning of March. The key word here is “could”.
I’m sure Supercell spent at least 3 weeks developing the January Update that brought us the Loot Cart and the Treasury. This means we can probably add this time on for the next content Update outlook. I’m sure we will not see the update before the middle of March, but I could be wrong. Just my personal feeling.
What’s The New Clash of Clans Troop?
If what Jonas said was true, the new troop will be a troop designed for Clash Royale, but was removed from the game before release. If this is the case then it really could be anything.
For those of you who have not had a chance to play Clash Royale, you might be interested to know it will get globally released for Android & iOS in March!
I don’t think Supercell will make one game depend on the other and it wouldn’t be the first time they release Updates for more than one of their games. Looks like we have an interesting March ahead.
