Following the success of Mordheim: City of the Damned, Focus Home Interactive and Rogue Factor have today announced a new partnership with Games Workshop to begin development on a brand new game based on the classic Warhammer 40,0000 tabletop game Necromunda.
Necromunda: Underhive Wars is a turn-based tactical RPG where rival gangs are locked in an endless battle for control of the Underhive, a network of abandoned factories, derelict metal structures, and forgotten technologies. Much like City of the Damned, the game will faithfully turn the cult tabletop game into a more modern medium, unfortunately we may have a wait on our hands.
Yves Bordeleau, General Manager at Rogue Factor, said of the announcement and continued collaboration:
“Rogue Factor’s collaboration with Focus and Games Workshop is a story of trust, hard work, and true passion for the Warhammer Universe. Our adventure began by building the foundations of Mordheim: City of the Damned Early Access. Regarded as a highly successful and well-executed endeavour, the Early Access of Mordheim: City of the Damned gathered a vast number of passionate gamers that helped foster an amazing community and improved many aspects of the game. After a strong launch on PC and consoles, and an incredible experience with many lessons learned, the way was paved for our next step in conquering the tactical RPG genre: Necromunda: Underhive Wars.”
Right now information is being kept under wraps, though we can expect to hear more at Focus’ What’s Next event in Paris, on February 1-2.
