Company of Heroes 2 was announced shortly before problems started to become public at publisher THQ. Now, just over a year later, the RTS has been dropped, sold, bought, and polished – and it’s now nearly ready for release with new publisher Sega at the helm.
This is the latest video for the game – what looks like a cut-scene that goes a long way to set the scenario that’s in store when Company of Heroes 2 hits PC on June 25th.
We’re looking at the World War II Ostfront as the main setting of the game. You are a commander of the Soviet Red Army, and your task is simple: Free Mother Russia from the Nazi invaders.
It is 1941 and the beginning of what will become the bloodiest conflict of World War II resulting in more than 14 million military casualties. Witness the struggles of the Red Army from near defeat through their incredible triumph over Germany in the most challenging and costly theatre of the war, the Eastern Front.
With Company of Heroes 2 and developer Relic Entertainment now safe in their new home at Sega (also home to the Total War series), the future of military RTS gaming looks more positive than we’ve seen it in years.
