Welcome to Librarium Online!
Yes, it's been announced. They are making a Dawn of War II. Although I don't understand why they make like 3 subtitled games then a sequel ;P
Anywho, the graphics look awesome, but so far I've only heard that Orks and Space Marines are going to be in it for sure. I do so hope they put everyone in.
That being said, anyone wanting to check it out Google Dawn of War II. Also, if anyone has any groub-breaking news, please post it

I'd prefer some other races, orks and marines rock, I'd also like to see randomised armor and little details like that make a game so much more sexy looking. 2 races will get boring very fast, can you imagine is starcraft was zerg and terran over and over?
Here's hoping for some nice niddy action.

I agree completely the CoH engine will do DoW well in that cover will be used more realistically (No longer will only craters count as cover).
If Tyranids aren't included that would just be cruel! While the other races are good they can be added in an expansion later.
I wouldn't be suprised if they waited till the last exspansion of DoW2 or even DoW3(asumming they make 1) to throw in the Tyranids. That way when the buying rate of consumers (THAT MEANS YOU!) goes down they'll release them to make the sales go up.
It's a THQ conspiraces to steal all our money! nah lol JK
I thought I was smart, but apparently people don't like to take advice from beggars.
One of the big PC Gaming Mags, maybe PC Gamer, is going to give a big preview next month of DoW 2. Apparently, we'll find out then.
I have a strong hunch Nids will make it, if not in the main game, then in the expansion. THQ working Gas Powered Games pulled of Supreme Commander, which had an unprecedented (and still unmatched) number of autonomous units. I think THQ and Relic will be able to pull of Nids. Technology has come a long way in 4 years.
Beside the obvious disappointment if they don't do Tyranids from the fans, I think THQ would kind of take a black eye from the Starcraft 2 fanboys. The Zerg are looking like they are going to use the overwhelming numbers strategy, and if THQ doesn't have an answer for that in DoW 2, they're not going to be as competitive. THQ has sort of put themselves out as the upstart competitor for king of RTS games. They have to do it if they want to keep building their reputation and success to compete against Blizzard.
(Yes, I realize THQ still has a long way to go, but they're definitely gunning to dethrone Blizzard somewhere down the line.)
If nids make it I'm gunna be screwed for a new graphic card, my computer now even on the lowest settings struggles a little with mass ig formations and orks (not in 1v1 games but it still counts)
Obviously Space Marines and Orks will be in the game but sadly i cant see Tyranids being in it. The problem that i can see is that it will be a choice between Chaos or Tyranids. This is because they are likely to go with 2 Good vs 2 Bad. Obviously everyone is as bad as each other, but in terms of the game some can be perceived as the "goodies" and then others as the "baddies". Anyway, back to my point, i think if Nids were going to be in this game they would have made a much bigger point of saying Nids will be in it, i.e. we would have seen SM vs Nids rather than Orks. Id say expect Nids in the first expansion.
