Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium No Longer An MMO, THQ Reduces Staff At Vigil And Relic

Share And Comment

THQ has announced that it has refocused Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium from a Massively Multiplayer Online game to an immersive single player and online multiplayer experience with robust digital content, and engaging community features. Further product details, platforms and release timing will be announced at a later date. It appears that THQ ran into difficulty finding someone to partner with to make the game an adequate MMO and that combined with current market decisions were the main motivators behind the decision.

On a somber note, team sizes at two THQ internal studios will be reduced by 79 full-time employees at Vigil Games in Austin, Texas, and 39 employees at Relic Entertainment in Vancouver, B.C. Vigil Games will continue to focus on both this game and the critically-acclaimed new title, Darksiders II, scheduled for release this summer. Relic Entertainment continues to focus its development expertise on THQ’s franchises including Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.
