Relic’s highly anticipated RTS sequel, Company of Heroes 2, was due to come out pretty soon, but since publisher THQ went belly up the developer ended up being pawned off to SEGA, and it looks like we are going to have to wait a few more months to get our hands on it. Producer Greg Williams had this to say in a recent press release:
“We hate to disappoint our fans with a later than expected date as we know they are eager to play but we feel that the additional time will help the team deliver the high quality sequel fans deserve.”
Yeah, we haven’t heard that one before.
On the bright side, eager fans will not have to wait until June to play the game, because Williams also announced an upcoming closed beta for the game’s multiplayer portion, which will help the developer balance the game before release.
