THQ Reveals New Company Logo

Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium, THQ's MMO, is no more; say hello to Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium the single-player game. THQ just announced it's changing the focus of the title, after failing to find an investment partner for it.

THQ's Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing for Games Workshop, said he's  "genuinely excited" about the game's new direction. Less genuinely excited: The 79 full-time employees at Vigil Games in Austin, Texas, and 39 employees at Relic Entertainment in Vancouver, B.C. who have lost their jobs.

“As previously announced, we have been actively looking for a business partner for the game as an MMO. However, based on changing market dynamics and the additional investment required to complete the game as an MMO, we believe the right direction for us is to shift the title from an MMO to a premium experience with single and multiplayer gameplay, robust digital content and community features,” said Brian Farrell, President and CEO of THQ Inc. “Because we believe strongly in the high-quality and vast creative work that is in production, this is the right decision for both our portfolio and for gamers devoted to this powerful property.”

We don't have any word on when the Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium single-player game is coming out. Even so THQ will still have a presence at E3 2012 so remember to keep an eye out.
