Warhammer 40k: In The Grim Darkness Of The Far Future
There Are Only Budgets.
A bit of sad news out of THQ and spotted by eagle eyed Imperial Guard scouts on Twitter. Warhammer 40K Online : Dark Millenium is no longer going to be an MMO.
From the press release:
THQ Inc today announced that it has refocused Warhammer® 40,000®: Dark Millennium™ from a Massively Multiplayer Online game to an immersive single player and online multiplayer experience with robust digital content, and engaging community features. Further product details, platforms and release timing will be announced at a later date.
The news gets worse however. AAA MMOs need big staff counts, so with the refocusing of the game to a mostly solo experience, 79 full-time employees at Vigil Games in Austin, TX and nearly 40 more from Relic Entertainment in Vancouver, B.C. are being let go.
