Company of Heroes 2?

The rumors section in the new PC Gamer magazine says that THQ's Relic studio is working on a new Company of Heroes-related project, in addition to work on another Dawn of War game. This unconfirmed report offers no details on the nature of this continuation of the World War II real-time strategy series. Thanks Kotaku.

CoH - a great arcadey RTS for teenagers.


Oh you must be talking about Starcraft II

If by arcadey you mean the only RTS since Broodwar with enough balance, depth and skill ceiling to sustain a professional esports scene, then yes.

The only people who seem to think that having a game like this NOT feature the Russians and Germans beating each other into a bloody pulp is THQ themselves.


Russian upgrades: bullet for your guns and sewer rats to eat to increase unit stamina.


What about Germany vs France?

If this was WWI RTS then sure.

The best RTS games of all time are CoH, Homeworld (1, 1.1 and 2) and Rome Total War.

Relic has been blasting everyone with the stupid as fuck Warhammer games that I have never liked and have sold average at best. I also do not want to see WW2 for a while, so the logical game to make would be HW3. Homeworld was so friggin ahead of it's time, mind blowing and still looks and plays great today on Win7 over the internet coop or head to head.

yes please!!!!

homeworld 3 while we are at it?

Dream on.

They got the license just to sit on it?

My understanding and first hand info from a former Relic employee is that THQ owns the Homeworld IP (bought from Vivendi in 2007). So just because THQ owns the IP and the Relic studio, doesn't mean that Relic would do the third game. But as someone mentioned, it has been alluded to. Either way, it wouldnt be Relics decision but THQ's.

Maybe they will add Russians and Japanese this time.

USA vs. Germany is getting really stale for me.

Relic working on a new RTS = I don't know whether I want CoH 2 or Homeworld 3 more. I'd prefer CoH 2 over a HW3 that was dumbed down for the mainstream market, but I think a true HW3 might be more fun than CoH 2. Whatever it is I'm sure it'll be very pretty looking.

Didn't Relic announce a few months ago that they were working on a non-CoH, non-Warhammer IP?

I've always had a ton of fun with the Company of Heroes and Dawn of War releases, but I'd really kill for Homeworld 3.

It's been a while since we've had Yet Another WWII Game.

Can they stop with the Warhammer and COH games and make a new Homeworld game please. Relic acts like they dont even know that they own the Homeworld title anymore.

Although COH's engine was, and still is, very good..I hope this would feature something other than a campaign slapped into old tech.

Isn't that essentially what the Warhammer games were?
