Company of Heroes 2 Revealed?

A blog called Enizr.com has what look like scans of an issue of PC Gamer seemingly revealing plans for Company of Heroes 2, a sequel to Relic's World War II RTS game (thanks Joao). Here's their summary: "The game is being developed by Relic. Company of heroes 2 will being in 1941, the sequel is heading towards the eastern front the players will be given control of the soviet army during the largest battle of World War II. Company of heroes to is expected to arrives [sic] in 2013." Company of Heroes Online, the MMO installment in the series closed over a year ago, and rumors of CoH2 first surfaced late last year.

After DoW2, the expansions, Company of Heroes Online and then Space Marine I'm not feeling good about the next game from Relic. And I suppose that weird mini game is something too. All that weird dlc for those leader characters...can't even remember what they called it.

I'm expecting this to be some weird hybrid between space marine and CoH. The scanned mag images definitely seem to suggest they're going to extreme detail up close which looks like a FPS/3PS at times.

Am I the only one who enjoyed the fuck out of DOW2? It wasn't an RTS, I'll be the first to admit that, it was far more a tactical game than a strategy game. Retribution or whatever the last expansion was blew donkey balls though. Boring story, funky alternate faction engine, the same maps over and over with different factions... It just wasn't particularly fun. In fact my major complaint about DOW2 was the limited number of maps and how uninspired most of them were.

CoH was excellent too. It still holds up today. It struck a nice balance between DOW2 and traditional RTS games.
