Default Company of Heroes 2

I didn't think it would happen, but it is! One of the best RTS ever made is getting a sequel!

Company of Heroes 2 incorporating next year - GameSpot.com

Here are some scans from PC Gamer: Photo Album - Imgur

I have over 500 hours of play time with the original (since 2007, relax people). Very few games have kept me interested for so long. If they can keep the core gameplay strong while adding new features, updating the graphics, improving vehicle pathing and of course a fun single player campaign, they will have a winner.

I spent loads of time trying to rank up on the 1vs1 ladder in COH, but I was a little late to the party. When COH 2 comes out, I will have it on release day and get to take part in figuring out strategies for the first time. Too cool!

This new game will focus on the eastern front, so the armies should be totally different. I am expecting the Russians and the Wehramacht, and the wehramacht will be very different from the first game, like new doctrines.

Any other COH fans here?

This will be on my list. Really enjoyed COH and the "expansions", and it's nice to support a home town studio too.

It will be painful to wait for it to be released. Any estimated release date?

2013 is the estimated release date. Thats all we know so far.

I can hardly wait as most of the fighting in WW2 happened between the Soviets and Germany. So many record breaking battles on the eastern front.

Another great thing is I think the vehicles will be much more balanced as the Soviets and Germans both built equally good tanks. Infact in the start of operation barbarossa the Soviets had better tanks. The Germans mostly had Panzer 3's and those could not penetrate a KV-1 or a T34.

Oh nice! Hopefully this leads to a Dawn of War 3 also down the line. With more attention paid to balance this time of course.

Anyone want to play the original? :D
