Warhammer MMO to cost $50 millionOn
That doesn’t stop THQ from dropping $50 million on the currently in-development Warhammer MMO. The massive price tag of the game was revealed by THQ CEO Paul Pucino during a recent conference call, and we’re not surprised that it’s that expensive: MMO usually cost at least twice as much as regular AAA titles, which these days is anywhere for $20 to $30 million. The Warhammer MMO has reportedly been in development since 2008.
The Warhammer MMO, whose official title is “Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online” is based on the 40K franchise, and is set for a fiscal 2012 release, meaning it can come as late as April 2013. So don’t close your WoW account just yet.
