As hinted by the vintage newspaper page we showed last week, the sequel to the 2006 game will focus on the WWII battles between Nazi Germany and…
Early this morning a delivery person showed up at my door with shocking news: HITLER BEGINS WAR ON RUSSIA. Either that was the world's most delinquent paper boy, or THQ really wants us to get excited about Company of Heroes 2.
The fate of the Warhammer 40,000 MMO has been revealed: It's no longer a Warhammer 40,000 MMO. THQ has announced Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium has been "refocused" as a single-player action game with multiplayer elements, a change that brings with it substantial layoffs at developers Vigil Games and Relic…
