This isn't true.

My friend went to work for the company that used to run APB... He quit his old job, flew out over seas, was their like one day, and was sent back as the entire company folded.

I really wanted to try this but considering how bad the last warhammer mmo did I should not be surprised :(

Ahhhhhhhhhhh damn. I love the Warhammer 40k universe, I would jump on that MMO like flies on a chicken bone.

Dang it. I heard before that THQ wasn't doing too well and it would probably hit bankruptcy later in the year, but didn't think it'd be this soon :(

I want Saints Row 4, dammit!

@Sorithal

And I really hope if they do end up having to sell, that they don't end up being bought out by EA or Activision. Even though they probably will *sigh*.

@h4ngedm4n : if Games Workshop had stuck to tried and true Warhammer design, without much innovation, everyone would be happy. Problem is, this WH40K design spurned tried and true Warhammer design, and instead followed tried and true WoW / EQ2 / Allods / Rift / SW:TOR / Alganon / million-other-clones design.

I doubt this is the end of Dark Millennium

The story should probably be updated to reflect the fact THQ has come back and said it's hogwash.

Thanks for the update, but all i read was "Trying to do some damage control in the vain hopes of not losing all of our options in a panicked fire sale."

-sigh-

I sure hope Relic doesn't have to jump through the same fire hoops that Black Isle had to go through to regain some independence/creative freedom again.

What do you call 1,000 "analysts" and "insiders" at the bottom of the sea? A step towards less pointless, spurious, beard-stroking, self-regarding pseudo news. Sheesh.

WH40K is probably my favorite IP ever. I have really mixed feelings about this. On one hand I really want a 40K MMO, but on the other hand I heard that this was going to be another 2 faction game, so I have mixed feelings. ;)

good thing the rumor is false.
this Kevin Dent guy should get burned, slow, until WAR 40K gets released.

THQ has had some bad luck as of late. The sales of Udraw has taken a toll on the company

Other games did not meet the numbers they were expecting.

Is too bad I was really looking forward to War 40K mmo.

Who knows maybe a Chinese or S. Korean company will come to the
rescue and take over the development.

Rumor or not, wow THQ's balance sheet is absolutely terrible.

Apparently THQ has denied the rumors

Isn't that what they always say and then wham they make the sale to another company. They have to make sure they that the price is at least
decent to shareholders.
