Warhammer 40K Strategy Game in Development

Posted by at 1:14 pm on March 19, 2013

War HammerGames Workshop and developer Slitherine Software UK Ltd. have announced plans to create an iPad and PC strategy title based on the former’s beloved Warhammer 40K tabletop game.

There are few tabletop games as old and well-loved as Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40K. As a result, the blood-drenched, futuristic setting has spawned a number of videogame adaptations, the most popular of which would arguably be Relic Entertainment’s squad-based strategy titles, Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War, its many expansion packs, and its similarly-named sequel.

In a surprisingly uninformative announcement posted to the Slitherine forums, a company representative calling him or herself “Philkian” reveals a new agreement recently signed by Warhammer 40K rights holder Games Workshop and Slitherine which will produce a strategy game set within the venerable tabletop universe. A later comment by Philkian clarifies that the developer hopes to launch the title simultaneously on both the PC and iPad platforms.

“Details of the deal including the content and features of the game have not yet been announced, but development is already underway on multiple platforms, involving the best talents in design and development available to the Slitherine Group,” the announcement reads, before offering absolutely nothing further. There’s no release window, much less a solid release date, and while fans should find it heartening that the title is described as a “strategy” game.

Expect more information on this game as it emerges, and we will all see if this project proves to be Slitherine’s breakout hit.
