Games Workshop have announced there are now a total of seven titles in development across various areas of their IP, including a new turn-based Warhammer 40,000 title from developers Slitherine. Meanwhile, a company called Zattika has scored a license to produce a free-to-play, turn-based game based on 40K’s Titans, the city-sized machines used only in planetary-scale warfare.
Meanwhile, Cyanide Studios are working on another Blood Bowl game, and a company called Nomad Games are producing a Talisman title. As we know, Space Hulk is also in development, and SEGA/Creative Assembly have the Warhammer Fantasy Battles license and they aren’t afraid to use it.
“Games Workshop has an enormous library of exciting IP. A new world of gaming is opening up and we are happy to talk with anyone with a sound business model and a good idea,” said Games Workshop in a statement to MCV. “The good idea is pretty important.”
“The days of monolithic Warhammer or Warhammer 40,000 licenses on all platforms are behind us. In the future, games based on our properties will be platform and subject specific, which is great news as it means there are far more opportunities than before.”
If you’re reading this, Games Workshop, I’ve gone and made up a short-list for you. Just pick up the phone and give them a call.
