    Bye bye Dark Millenium RPG or DoW 3 or any other 40K game... O well, we all knew it would come to this.

    I hope that their CEO and upper level executives will be ok.

    Games Workshop has already signed a deal with SEGA and CreativeAssembly for several Games based on Games Workshop's fictional universes. Nothing in specific, but seing the team, what comes in mind is

    Warhammer: Total War

    and

    Warhammer 40 000: Total War

    the Warhammer 40k MMORPG got scrapped months back.

    Intel i5 3570k, Gigabyte 7870 OC 2GB AMD RADEON, Kingston Hyperx T1 2x4GB 1600mhz,
    Seasonic 520w M12, Asrock Z77 Pro4, WD 500GB Blue

    That should've gone a year ago when they declared that it would be a multiplayer RPG instead.

    They only signed a deal regarding Warhammer Fantasy though.

    not really following why you would state this. upper level management is usually the ones who end up with a cushy severance pay/bonuses. i would be MUCH more worried about the lower level workers jobs. this is indeed sad news though.not a lot of companies get out from bankruptcy.

    Can't say I'm surprised as their market cap had dwindled away to almost nothing over the last year. I think it was down to something like $3million. And they had that dirt cheap firesale of THQ games recently on Steam as well...

    in reality the gaming industry has barely felt the 'recession'

    the entertainment industry as a whole has done great

    you will go without food before entertainment. chapter 11 is protection, doesn't mean they're going under, but the best selling games aren't good games, they're games for people who don't take gaming very seriously. that's where the money is being made, shit that you can pick up, play 30 mins, put down, etc

    they're not really a media for telling a story anymore. it's secondary to the point they serve nowadays which is killing time

    most gamers would make games i'd love to play, but games that would never pay the bills. it's sad but how it is.

    It's not piracy that's to blame, it's the stupid Udraw that killed THQ.

    God damn it. I was really hoping I wouldn't see this, THQ have made some of my favorite games of all time, warhammer 40k games amongst them. I guess this puts my hopes of a Darksiders 3 firmly away D:

    Why do all the decent companies have to go and not EA?? This stuff gets me so mad.
