Company of Heroes Online, WWE Online Canceled

by Xav de Matos, Feb 02, 2011 3:00pm PST

We have now learned the reason Relic Entertainment and THQ announced an end to the ongoing Company of Heroes Online open beta; the game has been canceled. According to THQ's earnings report, THQ has "reevaluated its strategy of adapting certain Western content for free-to-play online games in Asian markets."

Although Company of Heroes Online also saw life stateside, THQ has decided to scrap the entire project across all regions in one fell swoop. Also cut due to this adaptation reevaluation? An unreleased, free-to-play WWE Online title, exclusive to Asian territories.

Hopefully this means Relic will utilize its resources to extend the Company of Heroes franchise into a full-fledged sequel.

  • Never did have any interest in this as I have the original retail game and saw no need to download the COH Online version which wasn't too drastically different anyways. What is sad but true, their lead developer of coh online was actually killed in a car crash recently, I wonder if this is part of the fallout.

    But, very much waiting for Company of Heroes 2.

    To anyone who likes mods and want's to extend the life of COH, check out "Europe At War" v3.1 which is awesome. Has a huge tech tree and completely revised and more realistic mechanics, new unit abilites, etc.

    Also "Joint Operations" or JointOps is a pack of maps that are designed to be extremely challenging and have up to 3 player co-operative SP like missions which also work with several mods including EAW
