And yet again, GW has thrown a game's creation to a barely-known developer. Vigil has no known following..
Their other game on their site has some decent screenshots, but that doesn't bode well with me.
Out of all the GW PC games, only Final Liberation and Dawn of War are worthwhile, and both were developed by decent companies.

At least Fantasy Flight got the RPG. They are phenomenal. Just check out their Call of Cthulhu stuff or the Arkham Horror board game(amazing).


I'm crossing my fingers!

THQ bought the company so the overall developement should be controled by THQ. There is zero news on the game right now so we are probably looking at 2010 or 2011 before we see this game out for release.

Think of the lag if an Imperial Guard guild and an Ork guild go to war.

2010 or 2011 before we see anything like pre-alpha screens at least. A game like that has a long development time, at least 3-4 years.

Warhammer 40K Online is being developed by THQ-owned Vigil Games in Austin, Texas. Vigil is a new studio formed by comic artist Joe Madureia, and it's also working on Darksiders: Wrath of War.
Joe Mad, eh? I have the sudden urge to play as a Sister of Battle.

It'll probably play just like Dark Heresy, the pen and paper game.

this was announced around valentines day 07 when THQ and GW announced a longer licensing relationship. Vigil is owned by THQ, however THQ does not have very much MMO experience that i know of. i thought they did ok with picking up mythic.
