THQ and Games Workshop extend their Warhammer 40k licence

By on April 26, 2011

THQ and Games Workshop have announced a “multi-year extension” to their video game licence agreement. Which comes as not surprise, since THQ has published several titles based on the Warhammer intellectual property that met commercial success. Furthermore, the company is already working on two new Warhammer 40K projects, Space Marine and an Dark Millennium Online.

“The impressive translation of the Warhammer 40,000 universe from the tabletop to the video game space by THQ certainly highlights the potential of our most successful intellectual property in the right hands,” said Mark Wells, Games Workshop CEO.

“We know that the depth of the storylines, characters and imagery of the Warhammer 40,000 universepositions the IP to excel across many media platforms – and extending our agreement with THQ will help ensure that Warhammer 40,000 maintains a strong and growing presence in the video game space.”

On the other hand, Brian Farrell, THQ President and CEO said: “The complex, futuristic war-torn universe created by Games Workshop equipped THQ’s award-winning development teams with the material to create one of the most loved PC franchises – Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War,”

“Our envisioning of the Warhammer 40,000 universe will continue to grow with top quality games across all platforms, including the upcoming launches of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online.”
