Company of Heroes 2 releasing on PC in June, closed beta details soon

Wednesday, 6th March 2013 15:03 GMT By Dave Cook

Company of Heroes 2 publisher has announced that Relic Entertainment’s strategy title will hit PC in June, not long after it acquired the license from THQ.

In a release sent to VG247 this afternoon, Sega confirmed that he game would launch on June 25th. It’ll be a simultaneous launch across America and Europe. We’ve got a new batch of screens here.

Shedding light on Relic’s life under Sega, the game’s executive producer Jonathan Dowdeswell, said of the news, “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, It gives us great confidence to know that we have a well aligned team working to bring the best experience we can to gamers around the world.”

Producer Greg Wilson added, “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. 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.”

It’s a delay, but still a slip is better than no release date at all. What do you think of the game so far?

    Really nice news as with IP / Studio transfer came uncertainty about release of CoH 2 and how much delays it will cause.

    Bath of screens – Batch?
    And hallelujah, been expecting this little gem for a while now. Hopefully other ex-THQ studios won’t have a hard time resuming the work.

    Cant get excited now. Sega always do this – announce a release date then ship the title no matter how broken is it. Just look at Shogun 2. Only an idiot would release a broken multiplayer game along with other glaring issues.

    Worried now. So probably a buy 6 months are release.

    @3 – But Sega bought Relic at the end of development of CoH2 so… I don’t think it’s a problem in this case. Without THQ problems, CoH2 would have debuted probably in March.
