Relic: Dawn of War 3 is “strong possibility”

Dawn Of War 2

Company talks of new life with Sega and returning to the Warhammer franchise.

Relic Entertainment's game director Quinn Duffy has thrown a bone to Warhammer fans by saying that the move to Sega may not have ended the company's involvement in the popular Dawn of War franchise.

Speaking to Eurogamer, Duffy said that there is a “strong possibility” that the company will work with Games Workshop to create a new Dawn of War game.

The former THQ developer, now housed at Sega following the company's decline, says it imagines it will strip the game down to brass tacks and redesign the whole thing for a third instalment.

Duffy explained that as the company doesn't own the IP, it is all up to the tabletop game makers Games Workshop to decide if it wants to work with Relic again and its new onwer Sega.

“I would hope it would be us again. We had a great working relationship with Games Workshop. Sega is establishing one now with the fantasy license for Creative Assembly,” he commented.

"There's a strong possibility we'll all be working together again on Dawn of War."

Hinting at a potential future for the series, Duffy said Dawn of War 3 might have a “larger strategic component” to it, with global battles that are “MMO-like”.
