New Warhammer 40K Game In Development

The Warhammer 40K universe may be mostly in the hands of The Black Library and Games Workshop, but after THQ dissolved, many a Warhammer 40K fan was left wondering what would happen to any future video games. Thankfully, the future for Warhammer 40K video games isn't as dim as THQ's. Slitherine announced today that they have partnered with Games Workshop to develop a new turn-based strategy game for the Warhammer 40K universe.

Slitherine has not said anything else about the upcoming game, other than it will be avalalbe for "multiple platforms" and will release "from beyond 2013." If I was a betting person, I'd say that's for next-gen consoles in 2014.

It may not be a new Space Marine-like game, but at this point, I'll take what I can get from this universe.
