At First Watch Games, we’ll never forget the day we first shared Rogue Company with you. It was July 20, 2020 – almost two years ago – when we entered Closed Beta. We only had 13 Rogues, just 7 Maps… and we were missing a lot of really important features. We didn’t even have a Battle Pass!
Just a few months later, in September of 2020, we entered Open Beta – and opened the floodgates to millions of players as a free-to-play title. Today, we’ve seen more than 25 million players jump into our game.
Since entering Open Beta, we’ve spent the last year and nine months continuing to improve Rogue Company alongside our community, adding features like Rogue Mastery, Weapon Mastery, Next Gen Native Versions, a Steam release, Monthly Login Bonuses, Human Backfill, Narrative Events, and MVP. We’ve brought collaborations with Dr. DisRespect and Rambo, new modes like Battle Zone and Dodgeball, and so much more.
Our work is not done. But we’ve come a long way. We’ve added 9 Rogues, 7 Maps, 9 Weapons, and 12 game modes since Beta went live. And Rogue Company is finally in a place where we think it can hold its own.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve reached the end of our Beta and will enter into our full release with our next update. This beefy update will feature a new Rogue, a new Season, and some sweet new features that you’ll hear more about in our update show.
There’s much more to come this year (including a fantastic crossover that we can’t tell you about just yet). But also expect us to change how we approach updates to Rogue Company, focusing less on major new features and more on adding strong content, continually improving quality, and addressing key community concerns.
We could not have reached this point without you, and all the amazing support from our community and players. We’ll be doing a little something for you soon – stay tuned for details on our End of Beta Bash celebration. Thank you again for your support, and we can’t wait to see you on the battlegrounds of Rogue Company!
