Company of Heroes 2 Release Date Announced
Sega and Relic Entertainment have revealed the release date for COH2.
Company of Heroes 2 finally has a release date. Sega has announced today that their recently acquired game will be released on June 25 in both North America and Europe.
The game was acquired by Sega along with its developer Relic Entertainment when its previous publisher, THQ, closed shop. Relic Entertainment is responsible for the development of Company of Heroes and the Warhammer: Dawn of War series of games.
According to Sega, the game's slightly delayed release will allow its developers to "meet the high standard set by its predecessor [Company of Heroes]."
In the press release, Relic Entertianment producer Jonathan Dowdeswell wrote: "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."
"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," added fellow producer Greg Wilson. "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."
We'll provide updates on the game's status as the information becomes available.
