Saints Row 3, Warhammer 40K MMO, Red Faction 4 and More Get Release Dates

BOOM widget 78214 Publisher THQ has dropped releases dates for its major games across the next two years, including Saints Row 3, another Red Faction game, an action game from Dawn of War 2 dev Relic, and its Warhammer 40,000 MMO.

The slide from an investors presentation noticed by GameSpot shows an as-yet-untitled action game, from Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War developers Relic, scheduled for THQ's fiscal year 2011, which begins April 1, 2010.

The sequel to open-world gangbanger Saints Row 2--currently being expanded with downloadable content--is also scheduled for release in THQ's 2011 fiscal year. Volition explained last year that 3 will take the series in "a new direction."

Fiscal year 2012, which begins on April 1, 2011, should see the launch of THQ's mysterious Warhammer 40,000 MMO, under development in-house by Vigil Games.

FY 2012 also brings two surprising sequels to as-yet-unreleased games: Red Faction 4, which follows Volition's Red Faction: Guerrilla (due June 9), and Darksiders 2, an apparent continuation of the Vigil-helmed armageddon-inspired action game Darksiders: Wrath of War. The first Darksiders is slated to hit later this year.

These dates are all, of course, liable to change as they are yet oh so far away.
