THQ can no longer afford to bring Dark Millennium MMO to market by itself

February 2, 2012 | By Tom Curtis




Newsbrief: Alongside THQ's weak earnings report for its fiscal third quarter, the publisher revealed that it has decided to take a new, more cautious approach with its upcoming Warhammer 40,000-based MMO, Dark Millenium Online.

In a Gamasutra-attended investor conference call, THQ CEO Brian Farrell explained that the publisher is looking to partner with another company to help mitigate costs and bring the large-scale project to market.

"Because of the large financial commitment and associated risks, we are being realistic about our resources and we are actively seeking a partner for this compelling new MMO. We will keep you updated on our progress," Farrell told his investors.

Currently, the project is in the hands of THQ studios Vigil Games (Darksiders) and Relic Entertainment (Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, Space Marine) -- a firm release window has yet to be announced.
