THQ confirmed that they are working on a follow to the World War II RTS Company of Heroes. Company of Heroes II will put players in control of the Russian army as they try to repel the Nazi's eastern invasion.

The announcement comes shortly after a magazine scan from a yet-to-be-published issue of PC Gamer UK outed the game's existence.

Upping the ante visually, Company of Heroes 2 is being designed with Relic's Essence 3.0 engine, which the studio claims will "bring new technological advancements to the strategy genre in the form of innovative Dynamic Battle Tactics, increased graphical fidelity and new environmental destruction," according to VG247.
