“2013 will be a great year for us”
The producer behind the much anticipated Company of Heroes 2 has a new venue through which to publish his Letter from the Producer series: through Sega.
The first substantial comment from anyone at Relic since the development house was acquired by Sega last month happens to be on the Sega blog. Greg Wilson expresses his excitement to work with Sega in the address, and says attention is now focused on CoH2:
[….] I must admit that the studio as a whole is incredibly stoked to be working alongside a publisher with a heritage as strong as SEGA’s. Shortly after the acquisition was announced, work on integrating the entire Relic team began. It’s been a rapid transition period and I’m happy to say we’re a pretty much fully functioning member of the SEGA family now and remain fully focused on shipping the highest quality version of Company of Heroes 2 you have all been waiting for.
Wilson says details on an upcoming CoH2 closed beta will follow shortly, and he assures the RTS-centered studio will maintain open lines of communication as games are developed–something Sega themselves have not been sharp at lately:
Please rest assured that as we get out of this transition phase we will be much more communicative regarding our status and upcoming plans. 2013 will be a great year for us!
