So I Guess SEGA Don’t Own the Warhammer 40K License

Friday, March 15th, 2013

In a bizarre sequence of events, Games Workshop have announced a partnership with Slitherine who will create a new Warhammer 40K game.

SEGA’s acquisition of Relic Entertainment appears to mean that the publisher has not acquired its’ IPs outside of Company of Heroes 2.

But at the moment this is still speculation. SEGA may well own the Dawn of War license but it’s a strange move that Games Workshop would want two developers working on 40K games.

More on this as we get it.

Relic Entertainment Now Owned by SEGA; Platinum Games Interested in Buying Darksiders

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

SEGA has successfully won Relic Entertainment (developers of Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War and Space Marine) meaning it now has control of both the Warhammer license and Warhammer 40K license. SEGA paid a whopping $26.6 million.

In other news, Platinum Games has shown an interest in buying the Vigil studio who own the rights to the Darksiders franchise. This is an interesting move in that Platinum Games’ Bayonetta was released the same week as the original Darksiders.

Platinum Games head honcho Atsushi Inaba tweeted: “In THQ studio and IP selling off auction, Darksiders is unsold? [We] wanna buy it…on the cheap…”

The Vigil studio was not put up for auction with the other THQ franchises which could mean that Platinum Games make a deal with THQ out of auction for the lower price that Inaba-san is talking about.

Rumour: SEGA Looking to Buy Warhammer 40K License

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Remember recently when SEGA acquired the Warhammer license? That deal does not include the license to all Warhammer properties. This includes the Warhammer 40K license.

However, after THQ recently declared bankrupcy, the publisher are now selling of its’ properities one by one. Guess who might be in the run to get their hands on the Warhammer 40K license and Relic Entertainment (developers of Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War)? That’s right; SEGA.

Indie developer Tim Lewinson recently tweeted; “Hearing that the high bid for @Relicgames at the @THQ IP auction is *drumroll* @Sega.”

If this is true then SEGA will be home to all Warhammer licensed games for the foreseeable future. More on this as we get it.
