Hopefully Sega will let them make CoH2 which should be done basically, and Koch Media is a good company i expect to them make the full use of those dev teams especially the metro one thumb.gif

im curious dawn of war 1 was my favorite RTS of all time (even though IMO DOW2 ruined the series for me changing from a full RTS style to a squad based combat was a horrible idea) if relic is going to sega does that mean the Warhammer rights are going with it? because after Universe at War I dunno about Sega and RTS's

Knowing how Games Workshop operate, they doubtless put about fifteen thousand caveats and addenda into the licensing agreement that allow them to take the rights back in situations like this, if they choose to. With Kirby large and in charge though, GW really only care about whether or not they're making the most money possible from the IP, so if SEGA can convince them that will continue to be the case, they likely won't care who owns Relic.

Well on the flipside, SEGA also controls Creative Assembly, and the Total War series has remained pretty awesome

You know, it's really sad. I know exactly how they feel by reading this letter because one my company gone in the same direction.

Actually, they put out some of the best.

Company of Heroes, Homefront, Metro, Darksiders, Saints Row, Red Faction, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Warhammer etc.

AND they used Steam as DRM.

It was due to bad management, not bad products.

This is very saddening..

They paid over $20 million for relic. Why the hell would they kill off a successful franchise? Did Sega make Creative Assembly stop making total war games? Creative Assembly is working on the Warhammer Fantasy license so having relic with them makes sense on a lot of levels. Relic was basically the only good company at Relic with regards to launching new IP. Darksiders sold a lot but didn't break even because it was so expensive to develop for. The warhammer shooter relic released was really successful even though it sold maybe 1-2 mil because it wasn't that expensive to develop.

I'm just glad Relic is no lonjger under THQ's boot. I was a big COH fan and they had poor support for it after THQ took over.
