A deal has been signed by Slitherine and Games Workshop to develop a strategy game which is set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The game is expected to be developed across multiple platforms.
The Chairman of the Slitherine Group, JD McNeil, said “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. 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”.
The full details of the development deal, which include the content as well as features of the game, will be announced at a later date.
