Maybe somebody told them about Company of Heroes 2

Less than two weeks on from launch, Petroglpyh has cancelled its Kickstarter campaign for a new WWII RTS effort called Victory. The experienced strategy developer had asked for $700,000 to fund the title, but between March 5 and March 16 has raised just over $29,000 from 360 backers – which didn’t look on track for success.
“We want to gratefully thank all of our backers for your support of the game, and to thank everyone who sent us feedback about it. We’ve listened carefully to what the Kickstarter community has said, and it has given us many ideas of games we could do in the future,” the developer wrote.
“Additionally, multiple game publishers have expressed interest in Victory, based on your support, and we hope to still bring Victory to you with their help.”
If you’d like to keep track of the project, you can do so on its website.
Petroglyph was responsible for Star Wars: Empire at War, End of Nations, Rise of the Immortals and Mytheon, among others. Its veteran team includes former Command & Conquer and even Dune II developers.
