Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium no longer a MMO

More bad news for beleaguered publisher THQ. Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium will no longer be a MMO, as originally planned. Instead, it will be "an immersive single player and online multiplayer experience with robust digital content, and engaging community features."

"As previously announced, we have been actively looking for a business partner for the game as an MMO," THQ president and CEO Brian Farrell said in the surprise announcement. "However, based on changing market dynamics and the additional investment required to complete the game as an MMO, we believe the right direction for us is to shift the title from an MMO to a premium experience with single and multiplayer gameplay, robust digital content and community features."

THQ's Danny Bilson discusses possible Dark Millennium Online business models

THQ's Danny Bilson discusses possible Dark Millennium Online business models

Partnering with Game's Workshop has been a lucrative investment for publisher THQ, which has launched a variety of titles tied to the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Sometime in 2013, THQ is set to jump into the massively multiplayer online space with Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online from developer Vigil Games. But the MMO landscape is changing, with more games launching (or eventually turning to) free-to-play as its business model.

Speaking with THQ executive VP of Core Games Danny Bilson, he discussed his company's plans for Dark Millennium Online and responds to Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley's comments that Star Wars: The Old Republic will be the last game with a traditional pay-to-play model.
