Supercell has been teasing a massive Town Hall 15 update that we could be seeing come to Clash of Clans soon! Here's everything we know so far!
Supercell released their free-to-play strategy mobile game, Clash of Clans, a decade ago. Since then, they have been gradually building up the Town Hall levels with a new update at least once every year. We're now waiting for Town Hall 15 to be added. However, in true Supercell fashion, they have been rather tight-lipped about what we could see when it arrives.
Regardless, that doesn't mean they haven't released subtle hints and clues as to what we can expect to come in Town Hall 15. Here's everything we know so far!
Town Hall 15 - Release Date
Supercell has not released any information about the release date of Town Hall 15 in Clash of Clans. It should be noted that Supercell has never had a regular schedule update. Just for reference, Town Hall 14 arrived in Clash of Clans in the Spring update in April 2021. Town Hall 13 was released in December 2019.
Supercell recently celebrated the tenth anniversary of Clash of Clans by releasing a video that went down memory lane. However, they also revealed the future plans they have for the game. Starting with Town Hall 15, they plan on releasing this update sometime in 2022.
But what month in 2022? Supercell has been working on following an 18-month schedule in between Town Hall updates. However, that isn't a hard rule as Clash of Clans Community Manager Darian Vorlick said in an interview with Judo Sloth Gaming:
So, if the 18-month schedule is adhered to by Supercell, we could potentially see the release of Town Hall 15 in October 2022. The likeliness of this happening has skyrocketed as the Hammer Jam event was recently announced to take place between September 27 and October 10. For the past three Town Hall updates, we've always seen the Hammer Jam event take place before a new Town Hall update.
Town Hall 15 - Theme
Again, Supercell has not announced the theme that Town Hall 15 will be centered around. However, that doesn't mean they have not settled on one. In a Reddit AMA, Darian Vorlick was back again to answer a question about the theme.
This was his response:
Yes but we're not saying what it is just yet. You'll just have to wait and see when we do the official reveal!
Supercell has always surprised us with the Town Hall themes so we can expect Town Hall 15 to be no different.
Town Hall 15 - New Defense
In the same interview that Darian had with Judo Sloth Gaming, Darian was asked about the new signature Town Hall 15 defense. We can say that a new unknown defense will be added to the game. He revealed that Supercell has been experimenting with a few different options in playtests that will definitely "surprise" players.
In our humble opinion, it will be tough to be surprised after seeing defenses such as the Eagle Artillery and the Scattershot.
Town Hall 15 - New Hero
In a Reddit AMA, Supercell revealed that they are hesitant about adding a new Hero to Clash of Clans with the Town Hall 15 update. This is always an incredibly difficult decision to make as several factors need to be considered, such as the Hero's role in the game and how they would fit into the current gameplay/mechanics.
This is what Supercell had to say about adding a new Hero in Town Hall 15:
We would like to add new Heroes in the future but we also have to keep "simplicity" in mind on how many things need to be deployed for each attack. [...] Does it fill a specific niche? We've got a tank, we've got two ranged Heroes, and a flying one that is also a support one. Do we want a new Hero to be purely air based? Is that even necessary or does it fit within the game mechanics to make it enjoyable? Couple that with the additional factors of base design, we don't want to add too many Heroes too quickly.
Game lead Stuart mentioned that the devs have thought about what they might add to the game if they decide not to introduce a new Hero.
We are still uncertain about whether a new Hero will be added in the Town Hall 15 update.
Town Hall 15 - Building Limit
As it stands, there is a soft limit of 100 buildings that can be built in the Home Village. In a Reddit AMA, Darian revealed that we could see changes to buildings such as the Hero altars should Supercell need to cut down on the number of buildings already present in the Home Village:
As we approach the 100 Building "limit" adding another Hero plinth would also make it difficult to add new defenses. So, do we compress them into a "Hero Hall" where you get to choose only 4 Heroes to attack with? But that would also affect how your Defense is chosen as well since the Heroes would either have to all be centered around the Hero Hall or you place them in a manual patrol path around small sections of the base.
Supercell has repeatedly stated that the major reason they have tried to stick under 100 buildings is so that Home Villages don't get too big and complicated.
The devs appear to be sticking to this soft limit as they recently announced that they will remove all extra Barracks and Dark Barracks buildings in favor of keeping only one of each in the upcoming October update. This could pave the way for the new base defense or Hero (or maybe both).
