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.

I'm actually surprised that they're sticking with the European theater. There's a lot of other options during WW2. Eastern front is interesting to be sure, but there's also the African campaign, the Italian campaign, not to mention the entire Pacific Theater.

Africa would have been great, it's always neglected in media representation. Some great battles in that for the singleplayer scenarios - Tobruk, El Alamein, etc.

Exactly. It'd allow for a different style of story too.

As is they won't probably reflect the nature of the Russian military in WW2. I imagine that the game will be zerg vs protoss basically, ignoring the idea that the Russians weren't incompetent at the soldier level per se, but Stalin having purged the officer's ranks again and again made for a kind of jacked up chain of command that wasn't particularly efficient.

In the board game Memoir '44 there's actually a pretty cool, simple rule to reflect this. Normally you can play one order per turn, and it goes off in that turn. Russians/Commissar rules state that you play next turn's orders this turn. So on turn 2 you start by executing Turn 1's order, move your units/battle, and then issue an order that will not execute until next turn.
