Dawn Of War 3 Cast Adrift As Relic Cuts Support To Focus On Other Projects

Dusk has arrived.

Relic Entertainment has confirmed to Eurogamer that it is effectively abandoning Dawn of War 3 less than a year after launch, with the main reason being that the audience is far too small to sustain the project. Dawn of War 3 was released in April 2017 as a MOBA/RTS title but failed to make much of a dent in an already competitive market.

In a statement to Eurogamer Relic wrote the following.

While Dawn of War 3 has a dedicated player base, it didn’t hit the targets we were expecting at launch, and it hasn’t performed the way we had hoped since. It’s been tough for us as professionals who want to make great games for our players, and for us as people who care a lot about what we do.
When a game underperforms, plans need to change. With Dawn of War 3, we simply don’t have the foundation we need to produce major content. We’re working in close partnership with Sega and Games Workshop to determine the best course of action, while shifting focus to other projects within our portfolio.

We don’t know what future projects Relic has up its sleeves but it won’t be Dawn of War. At least not for a long while.
