Huge Clash of Clans Summer Update Teased by Devs
It’s that time of year again when all the mobile game devs roll out their big summer updates that are meant to reinvigorate the current fanbase as well as lure in new gamers to the fold.
This is definitely the case with Clash of Clans as a recent developer note has touted not just one but possibly three major updates this year alone.
This has users speculating on everything from an improved user interface and multiplayer community options to expanded abilities and units.
No one knows exactly what is coming and the devs have remained mum for their part, only hinting that three updates could come and stating the letter “E” as a hint for what is in the works.
No one is quite sure exactly what the letter “E” could mean in relation to updates to Clash of Clans, but this isn’t the first time the devs have left clues for gamers to figure out what’s coming next.
In what is almost becoming a tradition between the fans and developers, the last major update was teased with the letter “Q” which was then revealed to stand for “quests,” a feature that was long rumored to be in development and one that was in high demand among users.
One thing that is certain is that the next major update will end support for devices running iOS 9 or lower, so you better get to upgrading your headset soon if you want to continue to play the game.

Another thing that has been bandied about is that there will likely be no Clash of Clans updates this May 2018. The reasoning for this is multifold, from the need to focus on the major summer updates to the transitioning of the season (and the in-game events that come along with that). Needless to say, this time of year is one of the busiest for them, second only to the Winter holidays crunch many experience trying to push out games and updates for the holiday rush.
As for the timing of the major updates, the developer promises to be more in touch with the player base moving forward on the exact launch of those patches but a general outline is to expect a major update in June, then one in September, and a final update for the year in December.
Not only does this pretty much stick to the established schedule that Clash of Clans has held in the past but also it conforms to the general flow of major updates to games in general.
While we can expect them to remain pretty quiet on the details until the actual updates are worked out, we can confirm that many forum rumors and general forum chatter, in general, is read and taken into account by the developers of Clash of Clans. That basically means they read what you write so if you’re passionate about the game and want to see a change made, make your voice heard.
