SEGA have moved to share their RTS strengths, appointing Creative Assembly director Tim Heaton as the interim General Manager over at their newly-acquired Relic studio.

“We are currently looking for a full-time general manager at Relic, so my role in this phase is to keep the studio focused on delivering COH2, to find the necessary staff to take Relic into the future and to ease the transition,” Heaton said to CVG.

“Sega bought Relic because they could see the staffs’ depth of ability and knowledge in the PC strategy space. The studio has had a tough time in the past few years with a publisher struggling to support them, but it’s a testament to the way Relic works that it has had great staff retention, and that it has focused on making Company of Heroes 2 a great game.”

Heaton added that “there are no plans to tie the two studios together”, but did confirm that SEGA was “already seeing knowledge feed back from Relic into CA.”
