After versions for Mac and iPad, Feral Interactive has announced that a Company of Heroes iPhone app is coming ‘later this year.’

The critically-acclaimed game was first released for Windows back in 2006, came to the Mac in 2012 and then to the iPad a couple of months ago …

Company of Heroes is the critically acclaimed and enduringly popular World War II game that redefined real-time strategy with a compelling combination of fast-moving campaigns, dynamic combat environments, and advanced squad-based tactics.

A masterpiece of simulated warfare, Company of Heroes puts players in command of two companies of American soldiers, and challenges them to direct an intense squad-based campaign starting at the D-Day Invasion of Normandy.

Fully tailored to and optimised for mobile devices, Company of Heroes features a sophisticated user interface that helps players execute real-time tactics, adapt to rapidly shifting combat environments, and overcome ferocious opposition to secure the liberation of France.

The game won multiple awards when it was first launched.

If you already bought the iPad game, you’ll be able to install the iPhone one at no extra cost.

There’s no word yet on when to expect the Company of Heroes iPhone app beyond sometime this year, nor do we know which iPhones will support it.
