I've just had some info from Slitherine...

Order of Battle: what’s next for the franchise

*   The game is getting a trilogy of DLCs focused on the Allies. The first expansion of the trilogy: Allies Defiant, was released early this year, and the second one will be officially announced soon.

*   You can sign up here for the Weltkrieg tournament, starting on Wednesday, June 2nd. https://www.slitherine.com/tournaments

*   Order of Battle is also coming to console:it will release first on XBOX One on June 23rd, and soon after that on PS4.

The base game for console won’t be free-to-play, but it will include the full Blitzkrieg campaign (https://store.steampowered.com/app/528620/Order_of_Battle_Blitzkrieg/), this is one of the most popular Order of Battle expansions, which is distributed on Steam as a separate DLC. All the other premium campaigns previously released on PC will be available for purchase as separate DLCs on XBOX starting on June 23rd.
