Company of Heroes Online Announced

THQ, in association with Shanda Interactive Entertainment have today announced they have begun co-development a online only version of Company of Heroes, titled Company of Heroes Online for release Mainland China. As part of the agreement, Shanda has obtained the exclusive license to operate Company of Heroes Online in Mainland China, and THQ and Shanda will also share the benefits of the game’s potential release outside that region in the future.

Very little is known about the online edition of the game but it is known the game will remain in the World War II seen in the original title. The original was a game which we classed as a “15+ hour RTS tour de force” and one of the best titles of 2006, when we reviewed it late last year.
