THQ (Sort of) Explains Warhammer 40K MMO Changes

THQ's seen better days. The gaming world has all but left it in a gutter inches away from death's door, bleeding worrisome amounts of money. Worse still, the struggling publisher took another set of brass knuckles to the teeth in the form of a radical downsizing of its great MMO hope: Dark Millennium Online. The Warhammer-40K-themed behemoth has been stripped of its two-ton subscription-fueled MMO supersuit,…

Warhammer 40k Dark Millennium No Longer An MMO

Eurogamer has news that THQ's MMO project, Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online, has been refocused as a single-player and multi-player online game. The game had previously been rumoured to be cancelled. THQ boss Brian Ferrell said: "Based on changing market dynamics and the additional investment required to complete the game as an MMO, we believe the right direction for us is to shift the title…

THQ’s Financial Woes, Metro Pushed Back

Times are hard at THQ and that's relative to the general hardness of the hour for the majority of people who rely on one of the world's known currencies to secure food and shelter. The publisher is under threat of NASDAQ delisting, with its stock currently below $1 a share, and over the next year 240 staff will be losing their jobs. The company has…

Vigilant: THQ Denies 40K MMO Cancellation

Rumours wildly frothed out of the internet this weekend regarding the financial peril of THQ. This chap, an IGDA fellow, said that Vigil's Warhammer 40k MMO had been cancelled. He went to explain that the cost would be beyond the current wallet of the troubled company, and that it had also returned its Disney licence. GamesIndustry also has anonymous sources claiming that the in-development MMO…

No “Room” For Space Marine Sequel

Speaking to Joystiq, THQ bossman Danny Bilson wasn't lending support to the idea of a Space Marine sequel, preferring to emphasize upcoming MMO, Dark Millennium. He said: "We've already announced the Imperium in the MMO as a class you can play... and if you combine that it's very active, as opposed to the more turn-based stuff. I'm not sure there's room for Space Marine." Oddly,…

Hmm: Dark Millennium Online Details? No

UPDATE: THQ sent this statement to Massively: It has come to THQ's attention that some media are reporting that we've announced game details and a release date for our upcoming massively multiplayer online project, Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online. At this time THQ has not officially announced a release date and any reported features are pure speculation. THQ will announce confirmed game features and an…

Warhammer 40k Dark Millennium Dated 2013

UPDATE: The info has been removed now, so we must assumed it was posted in error. Whether that means it's wrong, I don't know. We won't be grinding nobz any time soon... THQ's Warhamer 40k MMO, Dark Millennium Online has been dated for the distant future of March 13, 2013. This official website bore the news, with a bit of text about the "Sargos Sector"…

Shine A Light: Dark Millenium Online Trailer

In the grim darkness of the future, there is only Warhammer 40k MMORPG Dark Millenium Online. No, seriously- I'm not sure that there's another game we've been posting about this E3 week with a release date as far off as 2013. Curiously, this (brief) trailer brands the game as a "Massively Multiplayer Online Action Experience", and when I had a brief chat with the developers…

THQ Says 40k MMO Due By March 31, 2013

That's because they told their investors that the maximalist sci-fi Warhammer game is going to fall in the "fiscal year 2013". That's an imaginary year made of numbers that falls between April 2012 and March 2013. So the field is pretty wide, but we can expect it to turn up by the end of 2012, maybe. There's actually a surprising amount of information available on…

This Man Is Not A Space Marine

The one beneath the cut, I mean. At least, I don't think he is, but I'm prepared to be more open-minded. He is talking about Space Marines, however - specifically what it's like to shoot dudes in Warhammer 40,000 Online, an MMO still keeping the vast majority of its cards against its heavily-armoured, subcutaneously reinforced chest. This producer interview from GamesCom has only just been…

Inquisition: Dark Millenium Online Interview

I'm interested in Dark Millenium Online, the 40K MMORPG. I really am. I just wish Vigil Games would reveal more about it, so while I was at GamesCom I hatched a truly brilliant plan. Unfortunately my sock full of pennies and painstakingly sharpened Biro were taken off me at the door of their booth, so I settled for a straight interview with Executive Producer Tim…

WH40k Dark Millennium 1st Faction Revealed

Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online is looking like one of the highlights of GamesCom, and we'll have an interview turning up pretty soon. In the meantime you can check out this new trailer, which details the first playable faction: The Imperium Of Man. Not much of a surprise, granted. But playable Adeptus Mechanicus? That's my first character already sewn up, then. Lots more footage below,…

Warhammer 40K Online: The Trailer

At last we get to look at THQ and Vigil Games' Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online. We don't know much about it, other than it's taking an "action" stance on the traditional MMORPG template, and it's full of maximalist Warhammer sci-fi absurdity. I'm sure more details will emerge as E3 trundles onward, and THQ also confirm that "more details" will appear at GamesCom in August.…

There Will Be Space Marines In 40k MMO!

Now this is a surprise. Everyone was expecting the forthcoming Vigil 40K MMO to focus on the ever-commercial Zoat vs Jokero battles. But it seems that, at least in some small way, the game will feature the obscure "Space Marine" characters, as shown in the new gallery at Kotaku. As you'll probably be unaware of, these are heavily-armoured genetically-modified space-fascists. It's certainly a surprise that…
