We summarize the status of the searches for neutral Higgs bosons with masses greater than $200\,\mathrm{GeV}$ based on data collected by the CMS experiment at a center of mass energy of $\sqrt{s}=13\,\mathrm{TeV}$ in the years 2015 and 2016. The analyzed data corresponds to an integrated luminosity ranging from $2.3\,\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$ to $12.9\,\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$. The tested mass range could be increased with respect to earlier analyses, but no sign for a new heavy neutral resonance has been found in data so far.
