THQ has announced today that it is hard at work on a new MMO set in the Warhammer 40K universe and which it is set to unveil for the for the first time at E3.

According to THQ boss Brian Farrell, the Warhammer 40K MMO is one that the company hopes will run for many years and which represents the "highest ranking revenue opportunity" that THQ has.

The comments came in an an investor call (via Eurogamer), where Farrell described the project as "a very competitive MMO" and said that it would be unveiled to gamers for the first time at E3.

Beyond that very little is known about the game other than the fact that it will be developed by Vigil Games and that the combat will work on a much larger scale than in other Warhammer MMO, Mythic's Warhammer Online.

The speculation in the office at the moment is that that will mean squad-based combat, with players controlling multiple character to help portray the true scope of the 40K universe.
