A few weeks back, the future of THQ's Warhammer 40K: Dark Millennium MMO was very much up in the air. Comments early yesterday had seemed to ease fears over the project, but comments later yesterday brought the fears right back.


It seems beleaguered publisher THQ doesn't have the stomach or coin to fully back the development of the game itself any longer, saying in a conference call:

Because of the large financial commitment and associated risks, we are being realistic about our resources and we are actively seeking a partner for this compelling new MMO. We will keep you updated on our progress.

That doesn't sound very promising at all.
