THQ Warhammer 40k Deal

Published on April 26th, 2011

Today and Games Workshop have announced that they’ve extended their partnership to produce games based on the Warhammer 40K series for all formats.

Thus far the collaboration has been a huge success with the series selling over 6.5 million copies to date on the PC, over its various iterations, and there’s also two new enterprises in the works; namely and Dark Millennium Online.

"We know that the depth of the storylines, characters and imagery of the Warhammer 40,000 universe positions the IP to excel across many media platforms – and extending our agreement with THQ will help ensure that Warhammer 40,000 maintains a strong and growing presence in the video game space," explained Games Workshop’s CEO, Mark Wells.

That was a sentiment echoed by THQ’s CEO Brian Farrell who added, "Our envisioning of the Warhammer 40,000 universe will continue to grow with top quality games across all platforms."

Well with the PC strategy market cornered with Dawn of War, there’s plenty of new pastures for THQ to pursue. The first of which will be the third-person shooter genre, with Relic Entertainment’s Space Marine launching before the end of the year.

Here’s hoping it’s a good’un.
