Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War III on the way
Even though THQ has just announced the next expansion pack for Dawn of War II, Danny Bilson has already heralded the arrival of Dawn of War III.
According to Bilson, Retribution, the next expansion for Dawn of War II, will arrive next March with Dawn of War III coming 18 to 24 months later.
Bilson told GameSpot: "Retribution's going to ship in February, and then we start laying out Dawn of War III. You can probably expect it between 18 months and two years after that."
Dawn of War II may become a free-to-play game if Company of Heroes Online proves a success.
Bilson added: "It may be a more digital free-to-play experience with all the depth and quality of a Relic RTS. It all depends on how COHO does, and how it works and how people respond to it. If they do that would definitely drive us to... Now Dawn of War III, either way, is going to have a much larger strategic component to it, more of a global battle going on with little tactical things, sort of MMO-like...We haven't announced anything about it, and it's still in its early formative stage, but I'm just talking to you about the brainstorming going on around it."
