THQ has been hit with massive layoffs and has announced that Warhammer 40k: Dark Millenium is no longer in development as an MMO. A few months ago, Kevin Dent sent out a message on his Twitter account indicating that W40K:DM was essentially dead in the water only to be countered by THQ denying any such thing. It appears that Dent was right after this story hit Yahoo Finance.
“As previously announced, we have been actively looking for a business partner for the game as an MMO. However, based on changing market dynamics and the additional investment required to complete the game as an MMO, we believe the right direction for us is to shift the title from an MMO to a premium experience with single and multiplayer gameplay, robust digital content and community features,” said Brian Farrell, President and CEO of THQ Inc. “Because we believe strongly in the high-quality and vast creative work that is in production, this is the right decision for both our portfolio and for gamers devoted to this powerful property.”
