Warhammer 40K MMO confirmed

THQ signs rights till 2013.

THQ's to release a Warhammer 40K MMORPG at an unspecified date, the company's confirmed. The game is currently under development at THQ's wholly owned Austin-based outfit, Vigil Games.

The title is a further extension of the company's grip over Games Workshop's number-crunching pen and paper RPG franchise, arriving after real success in the RTS field with Relic's Dawn of War series. THQ confirmed this morning that it has now signed a licensing deal for the 40K universe on all platforms lasting until 2013.

The MMO project has been much anticipated, and will sit alongside Richard Garriot's Tabula Rasa as a second, big budget futuristic-shooter style MMO on the not-so-distant horizon.

THQ UK remained unavailable for comment on the subject this morning.
