        The MP in 1 was so fun. I am incredibly biased but damn, I had a blast with it.

      While it may be niche, this was the moment of the show for me. I honestly thought there would never be a sequel to that game. And I absolutely adored the first game. Especially the multiplayer. So Not only was this completely out of left field it's also pretty much an abandoned wish coming true.

      I'm a huge 40K fan. I seen time and again really awesome looking 40K game trailers, only for it to be a bulshit mobile game or whatever. It was only at the very end when he started taking his helmet off, did I for a second I think it actually could be.... and there he was. My boy, 200 years older mind you, but my boy Titus!!!

      Do want.

      Kinda bummed its not Relic though. Maybe the burned some bridges after the fiasco that was DoW3... :( That and they have been focused on AoE4 and CoH3.

        This is done by the studio that made World War Z, they nailed the third person shooter / horde gameplay, it should be in good hands! 🙏

        It's been like a decade. How many people from the original dev team can there be left at Relic anyway?

        I worked on Space Marine. It has nothing to do with DoW3. At the time Space Marine was made, THQ was almost about to implode and they decided not to invest in a sequel. Many of the original team members from Space Marine went on to work at the Coalition to work on the Gears franchise.

            Thanks! Most of us thought it had a lot of potential and were really excited to work on a sequel, where we could polish the gameplay, improve the encounters and explore new mechanics/factions. I hope they're able to do it justice, as someone who also worked on DoW2, I like the choice of tyranids!
