THQ has proudly announced that according to NPD, ELSPA/GfK Chart-Track and GfK figures, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II went top of every PC chart you can think of, including those in the US, UK, France, Germany, Spain and Australia.

“We have built ‘Dawn of War’ into a premier PC gaming franchise based on the Warhammer 40,000 universe,” said Brian Farrell, THQ president and CEO.

“We are pleased with consumers’ strong response to Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II across many of our key markets and believe the game’s success clearly demonstrates our primary objective of delivering high quality games with strong global appeal. Warhammer 40,000 is a rich and growing universe and we look forward to expanding our offerings based on this brand in the future.”

It’s about time THQ has something positive to shout about, as reports earlier this month have suggested that there’s a 50-50 chance of the company going bankrupt.
