RTS fanatics will have no doubt rejoiced yesterday as news broke that Company of Heroes 2 is nearing its official debut, a number of PC Gamer scans having confirmed its existence. According to developer Relic, the aim with Heroes 2 is to present an even grittier, more cinematic setting, this time located on the Eastern Front during World War 2.
According to Kotaku, who were pinged with a THQ invitation, “briefings” for the sequel will commence on May 2nd.
Having only just gotten back into PC gaming, I can’t speak for Company of Heroes, though a ground-breaking Metacritic average of 93 can hardly be scoffed at. Relic is also the team behind the superb Dawn of War series as well as last year’s Space Marine.
