THQ has today announced Company Of Heroes 2 being developed by Relic Entertainment, a sequel to the popular original game, to be released early 2013. Details inside.
“As a true sequel, this game moves the battle away from the common Western Front focus of World War II and refocuses on some of history’s most brutal and devastating conflicts on the Eastern Front, challenging players to take command of the iconic Red Army and repel the Nazi invaders from the very gates of Moscow,” read the press release.
“Company of Heroes 2 is a true successor, introducing a new front, new protagonists and new technology while retaining the unique mix of strategic gameplay and competitive multiplayer that made the original Company of Heroes such a success,” said Greg Wilson, Producer at Relic Entertainment.
“We are excited to announce a sequel to one of THQ’s best loved properties. Company of Heroes 2 will deliver an amazing strategy experience along with a strong post-launch digital content plan that enhances and expands the product’s lifecycle,” Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Games at THQ said.
We’ll see more at E3 2012, including some gameplay footage.
