Massively has an interview with Mark Downie of THQ about Warhammer 40k.

It’s not incredibly long, about a dozen questions, but we get a good chunk of information, and a good hunk of meat to chew on. The biggest of course, is his highly tentative release date mark of the 1st quarter of 2013. Yes, that’s right, this game is still three years out! That’s if it isn’t delayed at all. We all have a lot of time to happily put this in the back of our minds, and try to  not think about it too much, and play SW:TOR. I’m impressed at the amount of time going into the game, as in this same interview, Mark stated that they have already been working on it for a few years. I’m eager to see development cycles stretch into the 6+ year mark with MMOs if it means great games, and quality products.

Other than the release date, Mark talked a bit about their game engine, their relationship with Games Workshop, and how important it is to them to remain true to the 40k tabletop game, as it pertains to look, feel, and play. He says THQ isn’t breathing down their necks to finish it, and I hope this is true. The last thing the market needs is a game that gets published too early, and disappoints fans.

    That model looks DOPE!

    Hopefully it’ll be worth the wait.

    Another thing to think about is the trailer was 100% in game footage. If the game looks that great right now…imagine what 3 years and some more polish could do to it.

    I’m excited, but in 2013, I’ll be the big 4-0….and old. 😦

    I can’t wait personally. Just so long as there are no alliances.

    There is no peace amongst the stars.

    Where did you find the tau pic?

    It that attributed to the game developement, or did you find that for another source?

      It’s not attributed to the game at all. It’s totally a piece of fan art I remember seeing floating around from a couple years back that is still out there.
