Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Summary
Developer Relic is working on Company of Heroes 2, which means there's little time for a full production of the next Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War instalment, but that's okay.
The studio are "doing some rethinking" about how they approach RTS; what's the "best way to present" the strategy genre? There'll definitely be more "RTS 40k stuff," says Danny Bilson.
Robot Entertainment is made up of former Ensemble veterans with Age of Empires to their name. Patrick Hudson of the studio still believes real-time strategy can be big business.
He admits though it's "changing a lot," and he's not sure where "it's going to go." The days of selling millions of copies at "50 or 60 bucks as a PC game" are gone; PC retail not there.
THQ core games boss Danny Bilson has teased the first details of Relic's Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War III instalment, revealing it 'combines I and II'.
Well 1 + 2 does, in fact, equal 3. That's good math. While it's "going back" to the first two on some things it will give us something we "haven't seen before".
Corks are popping over at THQ offices as they've secured an extension to their license for Warhammer 40k from Games Workshop for "all relevant platforms".
THQ's Dawn of War series from Relic Entertainment has sold over 6.5m copies to date. Space Marine is next in line, followed by MMO Dark Millennium Online.
Danny Bilson, THQ's Core Games VP, has revealed via Twitter that a new RTS game from Relic Entertainment will be announced in August.
"The big announce for the next Relic RTS should come in August...that's the plan." said Bilson on his account.
