Looks like THQ have plans to wage an endless war on humanity’s wallets. Not only are they (well, they and Relic) serving up Dawn of War II and a “ready when it’s done” 40K MMO, but job listings appearing on THQ Australia’s website reveal the company also have plans for a 40K “action game” for the 360 and PS3. The company site doesn’t out-and-out name the project, saying “We are currently looking for people to work on a next-gen brutal, intimate melee combat game using a world-class brand”, but a listing on a local recruitment page gives the game away, using 40K as its main selling-point. Games based on 40K that aren’t Space Hulk or Dawn of War have generally sucked, but who knows, a “brutal, intimate” combat game on a PS3/360 might yet be able to take the Dawn of War intro and make a game out of it.
