Exactly one month ago we reported that THQ had secured the worldwide rights to publish video games based on the popular table-top strategy franchise Warhammer 40k.

"We're looking for someone who understands the incredible depth of the Warhammer 40,000 universe and all that it offers, so that they can deliver a fantastic gaming experience to both fans of the table-top game and those new to the world of Space Marines, Eldar, Chaos and the Inquisition", THQ's Director of European Product Development Grant Dean is quoted as saying.
