An Elder Scrolls MMO? That's big news and all, but to this PC gamer, it doesn't touch the report of another impending announcement: Company of Heroes 2 will take the storied World War II RTS to Russia in 2013.

http://pc.gamespy.com/pc/company-of-...source=twitterAccording to the post, Company of Heroes 2 will take place on the Eastern Front with players taking control of Russia's Red Army. I've reached out to THQ with crossed fingers for confirmation and will update this story with any response.
Until then, let's chat Company of Heroes, shall we? While I'm relieved the game will remain in WWII, I'm surprised THQ and Relic are going to the Eastern Front given the widespread success of the Red Army filled Eastern Front mod. With a full-blown sequel, you would think THQ would go in a different direction, like say the Pacific Theater. Thoughts?
