Warhammer 40K Dark Millennium Online in March 2013?

Massively reports that March 31, 2013 is the release date for Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online, the upcoming MMOG based on the Warhammer 40K series. They say they picked this date up from THQ's product section for the game, but we can't find it there, so it seems to have been removed. Whether this is because it was not accurate or because it was accurate but not intended for public release, we cannot say.

When I saw a trailer for this over a year ago, I almost threw up, it looked like a cartoon. Warhammer 40k is a very dark and gritty universe, and here they are trying to make Lego Warhammer 40k Online.

And how much of them will be online in two years? F2P isn't the Big Saviour in the risky video gaming industry. And more and more gamer realize, that they spend MORE money with "Free 2 Play, But Pay 2 Win games" that playing MMOs with a fixed fee. Because you cannot make decent money just from vanity items.

I don't think there's ever been a big budget western MMOs that started as F2P. It seems like the standard practice is to attempt a boxed game /monthly fee model, then resort to F2P when sales or subscriptions slump.

I wonder if they'll be going with the traditional subscription model. Given the rapidly increasing growth of F2P games, I suspect that subscription models will be largely outdated by 2013. Hell, even WoW might be F2P by then. The only question is how confident THQ is in the game. I'm sure DMO has cost quite a bit to develop and if the game sucks, they won't be able to get easy initial sales through hype and marketing.
