Relic Entertainment, now serving under their new overlords at SEGA Entertainment after the collapse of THQ, have announced that Company of Heroes 2 has been pushed back to June 25. Originally slated for “some time in March”, Relic are reportedly using the extra time to buff and polish.
“Our acquisition by SEGA has given us the chance to work with a new partner that has a great track record of working with long standing PC franchises,” said Jonathan Dowdeswell, Executive Producer on the game.
“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,” chipped in his friend, Greg Wilson, regular producer. “However, the wait won’t be long as players will soon be able to help us test and balance multiplayer in the upcoming Closed Beta. Details will follow shortly.”
As soon as we have those Closed Beta details, we’ll bring them to you! In the meantime, we’ve updated our PC Gaming Calendar.
