Dawn of War coming to 360?

Relic boss says it's a possibility.

Speaking to our sister site, GamesIndustry.biz, Relic Entertainment boss Ron Moravek has revealed that forthcoming PC RTS Company of Heroes could make it onto next-gen consoles - along with previous hit Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.

When asked about the likelihood of a console version of COH, Moravek replied: "We're keeping a close eye on it. We've done a lot of work to see how we would do it, and we same to the same conclusion as I think the Lord of the Rings guys did; we're watching Lord of the Rings going to 360 very closely.

"If it's successful, I think there's a good chance we could bring Company of Heroes and even Dawn of War over."

But while Relic is keen to support both the Xbox 360 and PS3, the studio has no plans to develop any titles for the Wii at present.

"We make more mature-rated games, and more high-end graphical games, and the Wii is going in a little bit of a different direction; they're not going to play the same game as the 360 and the PS3," Moravek explained.

"You never know - if we came up with something cool we could do it, but right now our plan is not to... You can't do the same types of games on the Wii because the power is a lot different. It's a different type of technology."

However, Moravek is confident that the Wii will sell well despite the fact it's less powerful than rival consoles: "I think it was really smart for Nintendo to break out on their own and do their own thing. The platform's going to be really successful."
