Is Warhammer Armageddon series Dead?

Post by em » Sun Mar 26, 2017 3:37 am

I haven't heard about any new DLCs or standalone games on Armageddon basis since Da Orks released. Forum section of the title appears to be pretty stale too.

Is Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach the only WH 40k game that Slitherine will maintain, develop and produce dlc and expansions for?

Is Armageddon series abandoned?
I like both games and own Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach and all parts and dlcs of Armageddon (And gold edition of Panzer Corps too :)) but the Armageddon scale appeals to me much better.

I think that both games are different enough and It would make lots of sence to support both.

It is a pitty if Armageddon is over.... I would instantly buy any new Armageddon game or DLC.

Please let me know if there is a hope ;)

there's away hope, just no news that i know of yet, but saying that, nobody has also said it's done either, so fingers crossed, you never know until someone says otherwise

I hope there will be new campaigns or even new units with new sprites.
I've already created new units with overriding existing ones. So its not as good as Tau or Tyranids mod, but still if you want to see new units for Steel Legion and Space Marines (for Salamanders only for now) with new sound effects, check it out: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtop ... 26&t=76747
it is a good day to die

We don't have any pans for DLC at the moment. The team are working on full time on Panzer Corps 2.

After that's complete, maybe they'll come back to Armageddon but if so its likely to be in the new PzC II engine.

Hello,

I just wanted to say thanks for all of your hard work developing the series. Please return to it at some point! I enjoy Sanctus Reach but I appreciate Armageddon's scale and army variety much more.

Please do. It's the only computer WH 40k game I've played, in which I could mix Astra Militarum and Space marines from different chapters and form an army! That's a great feature!

Have you tried Sanctus Reach and Gladius, which just released. There is plenty more 40k fun to be had! :)

Weell...Sanctus Reach being tactical on company level like X-Com and Gladius somewhat Sid Meyer's Civilization-alike...Armageddon with division style play like in Panzer Corps and fits the gap of Epic Armageddon:40k. Although everywhere there is the GW stamp on it, they are very different games. I guess that is what raventhefuhrer wanted to express here. He seems to like Panzer Corps-similar games and just wants more of it.

I totally agree with the post above. I own all three games (Actually four if you count da orks) with all DLCs and I endjoyed Armageddon way more then Sanctus or Gladius.

I would love more of it but would also be down for a Panzer Corps 2 based remake with fixed recon units, fliers and different iplementation of unit limits and requisition points for different races.

There were two other big wars for Armageddon after all ;)
Dreams, dreams....
