The Inquisitor - almost 5 years
This morning, THQ announced that Company of Heroes 2, the sequel to its popular 2006 RTS set in World War 2, is set to make its way to a PC near you early next year.

It looks like… I don’t want to give the exact amount of hours of gameplay… but it’s a very, very lengthy and involved campaign. We’re going to give that team everything they need to make it as good as it can be.” Bilson wasn’t willing to confirm whether or not Darksiders II would see a delay when pressed further on the matter, but he did address the recent layoffs at Vigil Games, and how it has affected–or, in this case, hasn’t affected ...
