Slitherine and Games Workshop have signed a deal to produce a strategy game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
Development is underway on multiple platforms.
“This deal represents yet another testament to our continuous aim to reach new audiences, without losing sight of who we are and what we do best”, said JD McNeil, chairman of the Slitherine Group.
“It’s all about creating strategy games that are targeted to a particular audience and addressing a very specific need in the market. The Warhammer 40,000 setting is a perfect fit for the style of strategy games that we make and will be very popular with fantasy and science fiction fans alike. Joining forces with Games Workshop will allow us to bring an wonderfully deep and appropriate IP to the Turn Based Strategy genre”.
Details of the deal, including content and features of the game, are to be announced at a later date.
