Square Enix has announced that Supreme Commander 2 from Gas Powered Games will be released for PC on March 5, with the Xbox 360 version to follow on March 19.

Set 25 years after the end of the Infinite War, Supreme Commander 2 starts with the galaxy reeling from the recent assassination of the newly elected president of the fragile Colonial Defense Coalition. The members of the Coalition - the United Earth Federation, The Illuminate and the Cybran Nation - blame each other, and the early rumbles of war can be heard throughout the galaxy.

Players will take on the role of three enigmatic commanders; former friends from each of the unique factions. The character-driven single-player game spans over 18 missions and promises to deliver a new level of emotional connection to the RTS genre. Players will also be able to take the action online, competing against other commanders.
