"We're excited about the potential opportunities within the studio"
Relic Entertainment recently revealed Company Of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies, a new standalone expansion designed as an entry point for newcomers and a massive update for existing fans. We were lucky enough to conduct an extensive video interview with Relic Entertainment producer Greg Wilson and director Quinn Duffy... but excited as we are about Company of Heroes, many of us are still itching to play another Dawn Of War RTS set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
So I just couldn't resist ambushing them on the subject!
"War... who?" quipped Wilson when I cheekily inquired about how development of Dawn Of War III was progressing, before bursting out laughing.
"We have the rights to develop," chimed in Quinn Duffy. "We've got a great relationship with Games Workshop. We're super excited about... the new armies in The Western Front!"
"I started at Relic working on Dawn Of War II, so I'm really excited about the potential that that franchise has," Wilson continued.
"We're excited about the potential opportunities for that franchise within the studio," he reiterated later in the interview, after I jokingly asked whether Company Of Heroes and Dawn Of War had crossover potential. Sadly we'll never see Tyranids on The Western Front. "The ground is too hard" for them, apparently!
