    Game looked cheap, and from what I understood was not even going to be rated "M" which is a requirement for any Warhammer game to get the feel of the universe right.

     

    2 faction system is also cheap....

     

    I persoanlly dont care about the game from what I know about it

    Besides THQ is the publisher, the DoW games are made by Relic and Published by THQ; As far as i can see Relic has nothing to do with this game...

     

    In fact I just checked the Website and it has Vigil as the maker for it

    Now what i'd like to know is this. Did they cancel it because they only included two factions and they got huge negative feedback or did they cancel it because they were doing a themepark and they saw the backlash negative community reaction to this antiquated gaming model and decided to rethink what they were doing? That's what I'd like to know because people didn't start dropping from WoW, they didn't start leaving Rift and they didn't have such a big sub cancellation from SWTOR because they were tired of the worlds, they like me, were most likely tired of the boring lead-you-by-the-nose Themepark model. That's my theory and i think their devs were paying attention.

    Seems to me like they're in financial troubles and just don't have the required money anymore to engage big development projects, and that's the reason they cancelled all longterm projects, incl their MMO. If they're preparing to be sold off and their stock value decreased significantly, that doesn't sound that encouraging.


    Meh, just read the other post that says it's all merely a rumor. Ah well, we'll see then.

    The good news in this would be that maybe another company would take up this job and make this game into what it should be (a multi-faction MMOFPS PvP game).

    To be honest real(kinda) situation at THQ will be known when their yearly 'sheet' from 2011 will see light of the day.

    They were not doing so good lately...

     

    WH40 MMO was not looking good either tbh :/

    Can you link those news, because I have totally missed them.

    Well if you are a warhammer 40k fan this is bad news.  Personally I did not like THQ's design parameters and this is probably a good thing it is being canceled.  Maybe another development shop can pick up the IP and come up with a better design.

    Actually that is not true if you read the website.  Never saw any news on that and they never updated the 40k website either so I doubt what you say is true.  Last info I saw on the game it was still a two faction design.

    2 factions..and themepark WoW style?  sounds like just another 1-2 month wonder to me.


     

    Are you being serious or trying to troll the thread? Because Warhammer was around using this art style before Blizzard the company itself was even around.

    I would have preferred a mmorts instead.

    Grim Dawn, the next great action rpg!

    Oh look! another 2 faction standard themepark MMO.

     

    Just what everyone wanted....

     

    Cancel it and save us another fail, nobody cares.
