Relic teaming up with Games Workshop for a new Dawn of War is a 'strong possibility'

A collaboration between Relic Entertainment and Games Workshop on a new Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War title is a "strong possibility," game director Quinn Duffy told Eurogamer.

Relic Entertainment was obtained by Sega in January, following the THQ auctions. At the time, Warhammer's fate remained unknown. Duffy told the publication that while certain properties were attached to Relic's sale, not all of its games were part of the initial package.

"Dawn of War, because it's a license and it's owned by Games Workshop, they have the opportunity to work that license with whoever they want," Duffy said. "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. There's a strong possibility we'll all be working together again on Dawn of War."

THQ auctions continued today as Nordic Games picked up the Darksiders, Red Faction and MX property rights and Gearbox Software submitted the highest bid for the Homeworld series.
