Men of War 2, a natural sequel to the 12-year-old RTS title Men of War, will be released in 2022, according to 1C Entertainment and Best Way.
Men of War II has received a reveal trailer, indicating that the sequel would be released on PC in 2022, 12 years after the first game. Men of War is a real-time strategy series that debuted in 2004 with Soldiers: Heroes of World War II, followed by Faces of War in 2006 and Men of War in 2009. Shortly after its release, the latter received an expansion pack, Red Tide, but no direct sequel was released, with creators instead concentrating on various spinoffs. In this regard, the tide will change in 2022.
Men of War 2 will be released on PC via Steam sometime in 2022, according to 1C Entertainment and Best Way, during the Golden Joystick Awards 2021.

Plus, with over 300 historically authentic vehicles and 45 battalions at their disposal, users will have enough of stuff to sink their teeth into, thanks to two storey missions, full mod support, and online play.
