THQ’s announced that its troubled MMO ‘Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millenium,’ has been refocused, meaning that it’s now an “immersive single player and online multiplayer experience” instead.
“As previously announced, we have been actively looking for a business partner for the game as an MMO,” explained THQ CEO Brian Farrell.
“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.”
Unfortunately, as a result of the downsizing, 79 full time employees from Vigil and Relic Games have lost their jobs. This is always sad to hear and we wish the people affected all the best for the future.
