The on-again off-again saga of Warhammer 40K
is apparently off again, at least in regard to the title's future as an MMORPG. In early February we reported on some rumored THQ
financial trouble, but the company later pooh-poohed the concerns
and said that WAR40K
was still on track.
Today, though, our sister site reports
that Dark Millennium Online
will axe the online portion of its lengthy moniker and the company will be producing the title as a single-player game going forward. A substantial number of jobs have also been cut, with 79 Vigil Games
employees and 39 Relic Entertainment
employees receiving pink slips.
