THQ has confirmed that they will be releasing Company of Heroes 2, a sequel to 2006’s critically acclaimed strategy game. This new game is expected to drop sometime in 2013.
According to the press release sent out by THQ the game will take place on the Eastern Front of WWII.
“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.”
The game will be using Relic Entertainment’s Essence 3.0 Engine ” to bring new technological advancements to the strategy genre in the form of innovative Dynamic Battle Tactics, increased graphical fidelity and new environmental destruction.”
Greg Wilson, Producer at Relic Entertainment commented, “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.”
