Company of Heroes 2 revealed

A leak from the pages of PC Gamer UK revealed today that THQ is planning a new installment in the highly revered real-time strategy series, Company of Heroes. Though not much information is yet available, it is currently known that the game will take place in World War II again, but this time it will focus on the Eastern Front, with the Soviets battling the Nazis.

Only one screen from the magazine was released on popular link site, Reddit, revealing only the title of the game and a few lines of text discussing the history of the Eastern Front of World War 2. The complete lack of gameplay information seems to suggest this was probably a planned leak, rather than a fan with an advance copy. If it were the latter, it's safe to assume we'd have scans of every available page.

It does however, offer a release window of 2013, as well as the tidbit that the game is still being developed by its original creator, Relic, which has an outstanding track record in the RTS genre.

We'll have more information on this new announcement as it becomes available.
