Both Relic and the 'Company of Heroes' franchise were obtained by Sega for the sum of $26.6 million, adding the two to its stable of strategy games overseen by Creative Assembly of 'Total War' fame.

The June release of 'Company of Heroes 2' sandwiches it between the release of other well-anticipated Real Time Strategy games 'Planetary Annihilation' (expected between April and June), 'Wargame: AirLand Battle' (expected between March and May) and 'Total War: Rome II,' confirmed for October.
