I'm glad this game is still in the works.

Well good, maybe I will get to play a decent space mmorpg in the next two years after all.

We'll have to totally disagree on one of your examples, the first one. The Titan one I'm not going to get too worked up for since Blizzard keeps talking casual for play style and Defiance I am not familiar with.

I'd be thrilled if it launched, truly.

But it smells like vaporware.

I'm highly skeptical. I want this game to come to market really bad, but with so much negative press around THQ right now, I think they will have to can it eventually. It takes a lot of money to build an MMO.

No matter how much I want this game to succeed I'm hugely nervous that THQ will either fold, cancel it or devote so little funds to making it good that it wil be rubbish.

If they're actively seeking publishing partners its because they don't have enough capital to finish development.

I hope the game launches, I just wish they would scratch the 2 faction bullsh*t. Its not going to work and it'll be WAR all over again. Make multiple factions and have battlegrounds designed around this chaotic pvp dynamic. Its fun when two sides are fighting and a third comes in, it prevents gridlock or constant facerolling due to population imbalance.

Oh, and make Haemonculi a playable class :)

I will be first to apologize ,but imo since I saw first video about WH40K MMO (like 2 years ago , short video showed on C3 I think?) - this game just feel bad.

Info about this game (2 factions really?) , those small amount of video footage and now THQ problems = afraid that this game might be crap :/

@smartstep

it's easier to Develop than having 26 individual factions, you do want the game to come out at some point don't you?

besides, think realistically about MMOs: what kind of cluster fuck do you think it would have been if WoW had shipped with each race being a self contained faction?

Guaranteed that if the game shipped with each race being a faction, 90% of the players who pick this game up (when/if it ships) will roll Space Marines as soon as it opens, then promptly Roll the other races .... cue game death as everyone who didn't roll one cries foul and OP, before promptly switching sides.

I am so sick of game developers fucking up great IPs.

I hope this game isn't made.

They won't do it right.

They'll fuck it up.

I am so sick of this shit.

Standby for hype train...

@theBeast If they go with two faction crap like what happened in War then I'd be sharing your sentiment.

This, this a thousand times this.
I love 40k, but I simple don't see how it can be turned into an MMO without raping the background...

Tell us that they are NOT still planning on going through with their spectacularly disastrous two-faction idea, and maybe we'll care what they do or do not do in 2014. We've recently seen yet another shining example of how poor an idea this is, in SW:TOR's faction imbalance problems - how many more demonstrations will it take to hammer this message into designers' thick skulls?

OH BUT WOW HAS TWO FACTIONS AND 10 MILLION SUBS IT MUST WORK AMIRITE??

This game is going to be SUCH a disaster of epic proportions imo.

You can't make a game while a company's bottom line is sinking as fast as THQ's has been over the last year or so.
