Dawn of War 3 is happening, over a decade after the original. While we sit tapping power-armoured feet in anticipation of the release date for Relic Entertainment’s next game, allow us to bring you everything we know about the third iteration in the Warhammer 40,000 strategy series. Despite the relatively early age of the announcement, there’s quite a bit of information out there already.
2017’s your year, but we know nothing beyond that. There was a certain amount of design work done in the past, with the dying days of THQ revealing that Relic were already working on the game as early as 2011. They didn’t just kick development off last week, and based on Sega’s release schedule for this year, they are in need of games for the Christmas rush.
However, given we haven’t seen so much as a screenshot yet the 2017 date mentioned in the first press release shouldn’t come as a surprise. It’s a shame to wait, but given 2016 is already packed with great games – and great 40k games – it’s nice to know there’ll be something left for later on.
