Slitherine links with Games Workshop® on new licensing agreement

World leader of tabletop wargaming joins forces with strategy video gaming expert



Epsom, 14th March, 2013 – Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and Games Workshop (www.games-workshop.com), two giants in their respective specialist markets, have signed a deal to produce a strategy video game set in the popular Warhammer® 40,000® universe.



"This deal represents yet another testament to our continuous aim to reach new audiences, without losing sight of who we are and what we do best", said JD McNeil, Chairman of the Slitherine Group. "It's all about creating strategy games that are targeted to a particular audience and addressing a very specific need in the market. The Warhammer 40,000 setting is a perfect fit for the style of strategy games that we make and will be very popular with fantasy and science fiction fans alike. Joining forces with Games Workshop will allow us to bring an wonderfully deep and appropriate IP to the Turn Based Strategy genre”.



Details of the deal including the content and features of the game have not yet been announced, but development is already underway on multiple platforms, involving the best talents in design and development available to the Slitherine Group.



Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop said: “Slitherine are clearly established and successful masters of their genre of games, and there are many fans of their work here at GW. It’s a pleasure to work with such like minded individuals who share our passion for strategy games of all types”.

Wow, this is fantastic news. Turn based strategy suits the gameplay of Games Workshop tabletop games much better than real time strategy. I can't wait to see what this collaboration will bring... it's sounds very promising!!!

Dare we hope something along the lines of Panzer Corps? (Rites of war 2)

Fantastic news! Rites of war was the last time TBS met warhammer 40k. Looking forward to the results of this one.

Wow this is promising.
The Warhammer (40k) franchise is perfect material for PC games. Mindscape and Relic did a good job in the past with RTS/RTT and I'm looking forward to a turn-based implementation. Slitherine has already proven that it can deliver. Good times ahead for armchair generals. :D
