THQ has spilled a few deets of the upcoming Dawn of War III to Eurogamer, with core games boss Danny Bilson confirming that the game is heading in a new direction.
“We’re working on the next-generation of that franchise right now,” Bilson said. “I feel like an ass saying it’s fantastic, but it is. And we’re going to do something with it you haven’t seen before.
“Preserving some things that have always been great about the first two generations of it, going back to 1 on some things, 2 on some things, and 3 will bring us some new things.”
The previous two RTS games have both been well received, but the promise of doing something new with a genre such as this is exciting. Relic will return to develop and you can expect to see the game release from anywhere between August 2012 and February 2013.
It’s a long time to wait, but Bilson is excited right now: “When you see it you’re going to go, whoa. I promise.”
