Relic: Shutting Down Company of Heroes Online "Sucked"

GamerZines writes:

As much as we're pumped about the impending release of Company of Heroes 2, there's still a voice in the back of our heads that occasionally perks up and enquires, “Whatever happened to Company of Heroes Online?”

Relic Entertainment's big free-to-play RTS experiment went into open beta in September 2010 to great fanfare from both journalists and gamers alike, but in March 2011 THQ elected to close the service with only a terse statement to players thanking them for their “continued support and feedback.”

So what exactly happened? We recently caught up with Company of Heroes 2's lead designer Jason Lee to ask exactly that. (Company of Heroes 2, Company of Heroes Online, PC)
