Company of Heroes 2 will be launching on June 25th. While the release date might be later than anticipated, it's understandable. Relic was acquired after THQ was auctioned off, and the transition period in the company is still taking place.
In fact, getting a release date this quickly is a little surprising, but it does show that the company is keeping fans in mind in at least announcing one.Producer Greg Wilson had this to say in the launch date announcement: "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 fans deserve".
Now, as for that closed beta? No details yet, but expect something to come "shortly".
