    This doesnt mean a Total War is comming... but it would be awsome, and I'd look forward to it more than Rome 2 tbh.

    No love for the 41st millenium? Or they will leave that one to Relic.

    You know, the Dawn of War series is nice and all, but something with a bigger scope like Total War would probably depict conflicts like Imperial Guard vs Orks/Nids/Chaos much more faithfully.

    This has piqued my curiosity.
    Trying to argue anything with any sort of nuance over Twitter is the intellectual equivalent of trying to trying to squeeze a cow through a keyhole. Sure, you might even be able to do it with enough brute force, and whatever comes out the other side might even still be considered to be "cow" in the technical sense, but it will be so mangled as to be completely unrecognizable.

    Hey, at least they can't ruin it more than finecast!

    There is an incredible mod for Medieval 2: Total War (my favorite game of the series), Call of Warhammer
    http://www.twcenter.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=1377

    I'm personally hoping for a proper Nurgle faction in PC game, Papa Nurgle gets no love from devs these days.

    I fear that it's still in the bankrupt claws of THQ.... Sigh....

    I'd still give my left nut for a proper 40k RPG, think proper Dragon Age just as an Inquisitor Acolyte... That'd be amazing, sadly it'll never happen.

    Holy shit, this is really big. Creative Assembly is doing the most epic strategy serie on pc and games workshop owns the best damn sifi licence in the buisness, 40k is amazing with tons and tons off lore and good games, love the dawn of war serie.

    Imagine the scale of battle from a total war game in the 40k universe.

    Well looks like it will be the warhammer fantasy license and not 40k.

    The recent Dark Millienium MMO they announced is being turned into a single player/co op RPG, so maybe, just maybe it will be better off for that and be a nicer game over all.

    Yes, but with the company in financial dire straights I honestly doubt this game will ever see the light of day.

    Awesome news indeed! I just hope my Tomb Kings make it in.

    Of course it will see the light of day. Look how well Duke Nukem Forever turned out!

    There's still hope yet, wasn't there some news recently of THQ finding a new "financial backer" of sorts. Only time will tell.

    That was my initial reaction to the news of it becoming a singleplayer RPG (I'm sick and tired of every company making half assed games just because they want a bite of the MMO market) - sadly THQ has about as much money these days as the country of Sudan... So yeah, fat chance... One can of course hope.

    I think we'll see it released, THQ aren't dead just yet. On the other hand, its good to see games workshop doing more deals in the video game industry, both 40k and fantasy are universes that translate very well into games. Here's to hoping if THQ goes down, we see someone else pick up the 40k Licence and do it justice.

    The DoW games are pretty good, and from what I've heard Space Marine is pretty solid (though when I tried the demo it didn't really feel like my cup o tea) >.>

    Would be nice to have it in the hands of a company that wasn't damn near broke. Though I wouldn't want to see THQ go down, they've got some great franchises that they handle pretty well.

    DoW and Space Marine are both "okay" if you ask me. Space Marine was too short and too easy and too... Simple I guess, could've been more fun if they had like a leveling system or more story or something else, and DoW - Only played the DoW 2 games and it's kinda the same, too short, too simple and I hate playing strategy games where I only control a hanful of units and can't build a base etc.
