Warhammer 40K Online

Post by J1NX on Wed 01 Oct 2008, 10:12 am

Already, without playing Warhammer Online I have found something to take from it. In an interview between Gamespot and Games Workshop representatives Kelly Flock & Andy Jones dated Feb 28 2007, Gamespot said, "Today, the two publishers are announcing an extension to their licensing agreement to work together on new projects, including a Warhammer 40,000 massively multiplayer online game.....another Games Workshop IP that's already being used to create a massively multiplayer online game, namely Warhammer Fantasy Role Play for EA Mythic's Warhammer Online. Is there any concern at Games Workshop about creating a massively multiplayer online game that can gather a strong following without cutting into Warhammer Online's audience?"

__________________________________________________________________
KF: I can't speak for Games Workshop, but based on the data we have seen at THQ, each franchise has its own, distinct following. Of course, 40,000 is the stronger of the two properties--I mean what could be better than a Grim Reaper beheading an Orkish Squiggoth?

AJ: Interesting question. Firstly, EA Mythic is developing an MMO based on the distinct Warhammer Fantasy IP rather than any specific game, such as WFRP. Secondly, Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 have coexisted as very separate and successful properties for decades. And our plans certainly see that well-established trend continuing forever. At the very basic level, Warhammer is our high-fantasy IP, while Warhammer 40,000 is science fiction--and our customers certainly cope very well with that concept. I have been at Games Workshop for 20 years, and I have never seen arguments about whether Space Marines or Eldar can take to the field of battle against Orc Boar Boys or Dwarf Trollslayers. It really is that simple.

This is very real and very true. Currently the good folks at Games Workshop and THQ are working feverishly to produce Warhammer 40K Online. Be ready for your death march world of fantasy. Say hello to the Chaos Marines.

I have yet to hear of any stirring on this aside from a solid confirmation that it is coming. Regardless of how little news that is, it is good to hear.
