Corks are popping over at THQ offices as they've secured an extension to their license for Warhammer 40k from Games Workshop for "all relevant platforms".

THQ's Dawn of War series from Relic Entertainment has sold over 6.5m copies to date. Space Marine is next in line, followed by MMO Dark Millennium Online.

Space Marine releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC later this year. THQ has been working feverishly on the Warhammer 40k MMO Dark Millennium Online too which is still a long way off before seeing a release.

"The impressive translation of the Warhammer 40,000 universe from the tabletop to the video game space by THQ certainly highlights the potential of our most successful intellectual property in the right hands," said Games Workshop CEO Mark Wells.

Are you glad to hear THQ gets to keep Warhammer 40k? Press release is here.

Good news. Looks like work can now continue on the MMO, as after "Space Marine" (and of course the inevitable "DoW III") this another I am looking forward to.
