THQ Rumors: DMO on the Block?

A thread on NeoGAF hashes through rumors that THQ is close to declaring bankruptcy, and all of the publisher/developer's 2014 games are cancelled (thanks joao). There's a thread about this on reddit including a comment from someone claiming to be from THQ (supported by his Steam profile) with no knowledge of this: "I'm employed by THQ/Relic on the DMO team. I am not aware of DMO, or any other projects, being cancelled." The DMO he refers to is Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online, and GamesIndustry.biz (registration required) say "sources" tell them this Warhammer 40K MMOG is currently being shopped around to other companies. This includes a follow-up from THQ with an official statement on this for the press denying the cancellation of their 2014 slate, but also indicating they have "decisions" to make about the future of DMO:

THQ has not cancelled its 2014 line-up, and has not made any decisions regarding the planned MMO.

As part of the ongoing review of our business, we have made decisions to ensure that the company is strategically addressing the most attractive markets. As we have previously announced, we have dramatically reduced our commitment to the kids' boxed games sector which leads to a significantly more focused release schedule moving forward.

Our slate for calendar 2012 and beyond is focused on high-quality core games and continues to build our digital platform and business. We are excited for our pipeline of original and high-quality content along with our relationships with some of the best talent in the industry.

Save Volition! I demand SR4!!!!!!!



I'd rather they acquire the Freespace property from that dead husk that remains of Interplay. Not that the SR games aren't fantastic as well.
