NeoGAF members managed to get their hands on the upcoming issue of PC Gamer, which will apparently announce Company of Heroes 2, a new project by Relic Entertainment.
The game’s main campaign will supposedly take place somewhere on the Eastern front, and the main characters will actually be the Russians. Snow will be a main theme in gameplay, as it will affect the movement speed of troops and tanks, and can form cover in certain circumstances. The game will also include a system that lets units vault over cover.
THQ has not officially revealed the project, nor have they officially denied it. When Game Informer approached THQ for more information, the rep they spoke with said they would be revealing more information soon, which strongly points toward the NeoGAF leak being true.
We will bring you more details on Company of Heroes 2 when it becomes available. Hopefully, the game will make an appearance at this year’s E3.
