it was meant to be something else, something alongside DoW3, most probably either HW3 or Company of Heroes 2 (more likely option, but i would prefer HW3 - obviously).
There was a big thread on this on the Gamereplays COH message boards.
Still, as it did not happen in the end, we can only speculate.
Since Company of Heroes didn't sell that well and Company of Heroes Online had to shut down, odds don't look too good for that. Also, I think the DoW and CoH series are very similar so that further rules out a CoH 2 as it would compete with DoW 3.
That leaves Homeworld 3. Never understood what people like about that series. I've tried part 2 and it was way too strategic. No tactics like in DoW & CoH.
YOU are on GameReplays?? Didn't expect that
That community have some of the internets most elitist, arrogant selfappointed pros that has ever existed which is the reason I left their StarCraft II section exactly 2 years ago. Gonna make a comback to their CoH section though but I feel it's gonna be a loong (flame) war.
No, i am not, god forbid
I just read somewhere about that upcoming "announcement", so wanted to know more and googled it...i believe the first thing it found was the topic on the Gamereplays forums.
I used to check that site occasionaly few years back though, when Red Alert 3 was about to come out. Was pretty fascinated by that game back then, although never played it competitively or nothing like that. But i liked it for short amount of time and the site was source of some good info.
Regarding Homeworld, well you played the wrong one . Not saying its a bad game, or that much different in terms of gameplay to the first one, so it probably wont matter to you, but the first one has better story and is more immersive. Simply better game almost all around, perhaps with the exception of multiplayer, which was probably given more attention in the second game, but it is possible some HW hardcore fans might be disagreeing with this as well.
I still think CoH sequel, even if not set in WW2 scenario, is sadly far more likely than anything Homeworld-related. Space RTS is a niche genre and THQ is not going to allow Relic to waste money on producing game without potential to sell millions of copies. Homeworld does noz boast such potential, ergo we are in for Dawn of War 3,4,5,6 etc... ad nauseum (and i liked that game) or perhaps other sequels to CoH.
