If you've been waiting for the upcoming Warhammer 40k MMO Dark Millennium Online
, you may have checked out recent single-player title Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
. In an interview on the two games with Shacknews last night
, THQ's VP of Core Games Danny Bilson
described a potential conflict of interest between the upcoming MMO and any potential Space Marine sequel. When asked whether the single-player title deserved a sequel, Bilson described an interesting creative overlap between the game and its upcoming MMO counterpart.
Revealing that the MMO would contain more action-based gameplay than the MMO norm, Bilson painted a picture of Dark Millennium Online
as an online spiritual successor to Space Marine
but with the other 40k factions similarly explored. "It may be that the next iteration of Space Marine
is a much bigger universe, where if you love Space Marines you can play that way," he told Shacknews, adding that "there was a creative overlap going on with Dark Millennium Online
's development" and "there's not room in the world for that overlap."
