Has Bioware Saved Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine?

May 2, 2013 by brennon

The Space Marine video game from Relic was one of the best representations of the Dark Future that we’ve seen digitally and when THQ went bust it was thought that the game would be lost. This was especially painful considering the games ending! However, maybe there is some light at the end of the Bioware shaped tunnel…

Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine

The site Bit by Bit Gaming has reported that a reliable source within Bioware revealed they are now the owners of the Space Marine and Dark Millennium IP. This is good news since the second of those games was thought entirely lost!

Taking everything here with a big pinch of salt the source went on to reveal that the new Space Marine game might focus on the Salamander chapter and include Orks, Imperial Guard and Tau.

In terms of Dark Millennium it seems like a 3rd person shooter is still considered the right direction. Bioware are of course the folks behind Dragon Age, Mass Effect and Star Wars: The Old Republic. So they know their dark fantasy and Sci-Fi.

If this is true, will you be drumming your fingers on the desk in anticipation?

Let me know.
