Default Dark Millennium seems to have been cancelled...

THQ seem to finally have given us some sort of answer about the state of Dark Millenium Online...

Quote:
KOTAKU: Is Warhammer: 40,000: Dark Millenium still in production at Vigil?

PR: Development of that title ceased a while ago and that was announced in March 2012. No details of future titles from Vigil have been released at this time.
Read the rest of the article here.

Thats sort of fucked up, since they announced that it was being turned into a single player game with multiplayer components, not cancelled.

Did some digging around, and came across this on Facebook as well, posted by Joe Madureira (former Creative Director at Vigil, he quit in October).



This of course not an all that big surprise, since THQ and Vigil have long since removed DMO`s website and removed almost every mention of it from their blogs and websites. The fact that it wasn`t even mentioned in THQ`s court papers a few weeks back was also a rather worrying sign... Still a shame though. The game looked great.

Um. Guys? Dark Millennium has been confirmed to be cancelled for months. Like, months and months ago.

They have already confirmed they are using the material they made during DMO production to make a Singleplayer game. They will be using the maps and objects and stuff to make a multi-area game. The pictures OP linked are very old and probably nothing like the singleplayer game they are making.

However, will whatever Dark Millennium Online Cannibalised game be finished? Who knows. So, you have to wait to see if the game will be released as the singleplayer one they said they are either working on in development or working on planning.

As you said, last detail was March 2012, that was 9 months ago, 9 months is a long time in game development. So, yeah... You gotta wait now.

Man... means I'm actually going to have to have games of 40k... First game I've been excited about since WoW and Space Marine!

You just took a giant hypothetical dump in my hypothetical punch bowl.
