I’ll come out and say this right now. I’m a Warhammer 40K fanboy. I love the tabletop, the games, the books, everything. I love the over the top races, the ridiculous technology, the crazy weapons and aliens. And you can bet your butt I loved Dawn of War and Dawn of War 2. Once THQ went bankrupt, I had a sad period, knowing in my heart that I wouldn’t get DoW 3 now.
But now, it looks like I may not have to commit sepukku. Relic has come out to say that, once their work on Company of Heroes is taken care of, there is a strong possibility of a new Dawn of War game. When I heard that Relic had been picked up by Sega, the first thing I remember thinking of was a Total War styled game, only set in the Warhammer 40K or Warhammer Fantasy settings.
Now if Dawn of War 3 comes out, it will probably be the next RTS I sink a good chunk of time into. I’ve been looking and looking for something to fill the gap, and Supreme Commander 2 just isn’t cutting it anymore. I hope Relic finishes up soon, and starts up on a new Dawn of War title. I need to get my Imperial Guard on!
