  1. Folks beta testing Company of Heroes Online have less than 60 days to enjoy the WWII RTS. Relic Entertainment has informed gamers that it's closing the open beta on March 31 to "evaluate the next steps for the Company of Heroes series." The developer's initial announcement didn't clearly state whether it was scrapping the free-to-play project entirely, but it has since confirmed CoHO's demise in a forum post. "Yes.

    That's definitely an unexpected move from a company such as Relic Entertainment whose been pretty fair to gamers over the years. At the very least they should give credit to those affected on anything they wanted in the THQ store. I hope this is just an isolated case with them screwing gamers over.

    How can these projects work when they are the same as a 2 or 3 year old game?
