Less Space Marines, THQ doesn't own the IP for those games.

I think its great that GW is allowing them to make games based of 40k, and its also great that they are making new games that don't focus on strategy and more on the action side of it all... Maybe they will make and FPS worth a flip eventually.

Another great thing about there games is that they are spreading the table top interest more and more, I now have friends that never even heard of 40k just itching to get this new game.

Now if GW would stop being so anal and let hollywood make a dman good movie based in that universe they would prolly bank even more off it.

Actually it may not have as much of an impact on the 40k games as THQ is just the publisher while Relic is the actual developer of the games. It hard to say what means for future 40k games but I doubt it will have any affect on the two upcoming games they're publishing, Space Marine and Dark Millennium Online.

Yea, THQ has the license for 40k for the next ten years, but Relic aint the only developer.
