Warhammer 40K Dark Milennium becomes a single player title
THQ has given up on their ambitions of creating a Warhammer 40K MMO title in the interests of turning Dark Millenniium into a profitable title.
Due to their inability to find a partner willing to assist them in the development of WH40K Dark Millenium as an MMO THQ has decided to change direction and develop the game as a single player title with online multiplayer, solid community features and a planned line-up of DLC.
President and CEO of THQ, Brian Farrell explained the decision saying, "As previously announced, we have been actively looking for a business partner for the game as an MMO. However, based on changing market dynamics and the additional investment required to complete the game as an MMO, we believe the right direction for us is to shift the title from an MMO to a premium experience with single and multiplayer gameplay, robust digital content and community features. Because we believe strongly in the high-quality and vast creative work that is in production, this is the right decision for both our portfolio and for gamers devoted to this powerful property."
It is yet to be confirmed what platforms WH40K Dark Millennium will appear on but THQ is promising more details including a release window at a later date.
