Focus Home Interactive and Tindalos Interactive announce the development of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, a real time strategy adaptation of Games Workshop's famous tabletop game for the PC. Here are a few screenshots and a press release.
The game stages the mighty armada of the Imperial Navy's Battlefleet Gothic against the insidious and galaxy threatening Chaos Black Crusade of Abaddon the Despoiler in dark, deadly and intense space battles.
Developed on Unreal Engine 4, Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is anRTS in which the player takes command of one of these battlefleets composed of the most powerful spaceships from the Imperial, Chaos, Eldar and Ork forces, in a no-quarter given struggle for the control of the Gothic sector of space.
Battlefleet Gothic: Armada offers deep management of every ship composing the player's fleet, both during and between battles. From the fastest frigates to the gigantic, miles-long battleships, the player will customize all aspects of his ships: weaponry, defense and support sub-systems, etc. each customization affecting the very performances of the ship and the special abilities available during battle. From battle to battle, the admirals and crew of surviving ships will gain experience and promotions, improving the battle-readiness of the ship for future, bigger and more dangerous battles.

@Tiz: Yes, from their shareholders and executives' points of view, it does makes sense. To be honest, Sony was like that during the PS1 and PS2 eras as well. (6 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: I saw that thread and if that is the case then MS investments make a whole lot more sense: more guarantees. Everyone loves Minecraft, and what company isn't using Havok or Simplygon? (8 minutes ago)
.. only time will tell if MS ever reach that, but as you say MS don't have to fight tooth and nail as hard as Sony or Nintendo with software and that is prob a big part of it. (12 minutes ago)
