Company of Heroes 2 coming on June 25

Relic Entertainment's strategy title Company of Heroes 2 will launch for Windows PC in North America and Europe on June 25, Relic and parent company Sega announced today.

Company of Heroes 2 was originally scheduled for release early this year. Last November, parent company THQ announced that the title, along with Metro: Last Light and South Park: The Stick of Truth, would be delayed to March 2013. According to THQ president Jason Rubin, this was so Company of Heroes 2 and Last Light could spend more time in development in order "to reach their full potential."

In January Relic Entertainment was purchased by Sega in the bankruptcy auction held to liquidate THQ's assets.

"Our acquisition by Sega has given us the chance to work with a new partner that has a great track record of working with long standing PC franchises," said executive producer Jonathan Dowdeswell in a press statement. "It gives us great confidence to know that we have a well aligned team working to bring the best experience we can to gamers around the world."

"We hate to disappoint our fans with a later than expected date as we know they are eager to play but we feel that the additional time will help the team deliver the high quality sequel they deserve," added producer Greg Wilson. "However, the wait won't be long as players will soon be able to help us test and balance multiplayer in the upcoming Closed Beta. Details will follow shortly."

Last week Wilson wrote an open letter to fans promising developer Relic would be more communicative about its future plans for the title, and that closed beta details were on the way.
