THQ's spent years walking a fine line between ambitious expansion and a collapse that'd rival even the world's most impressively misguided Jenga towers, but recent events suggested that the videogame Grim Reaper had finally lopped a leg right off the teetering beast. In short, Kevin Dent, industry veteran and CEO of games consultancy firm Tiswaz Entertainment, tweeted the following: “Apparently, The [Warhammer 40K MMO] has been canceled by THQ. I am hearing everything [in 2014 is canceled], they need to preserve cash.” He also alleged that the publisher was selling IPs back to their original owners. Dire straits, right? THQ begs to differ.
Vigil’s massively multiplayer Warhammer 40,000 action MMO, Dark Millenium has a brand new teaser trailer. Okay, it shows almost nothing, but we do get a tiny glimpse of what looks to be in-game action somewhere behind all that gold. In fact, last year’s E3 trailer showed approximately 300% more of the game, so I’ve embedded that below. Dark Millennium Online is listed as “coming soon.” Hopefully we’ll see more in the next couple of days as E3 2011 rumbles on.
