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".
Publisher THQ has revealed their financials for the fiscal year now passed and they record a loss of $136.1m, while net sales were in fact stronger at $802.3m.
Q4 '11 didn't perform as well as the previous year's, but Homefront is attributed as their 'primary drive' for success. The new IP has had a "solid start".
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.
THQ has announced that it will be releasing some new content for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution on 6th April.
This content will update The Last Stand mode with 12 new achievements, each unlocking an extra piece of wargear.
