It hasn't been announced yet but the next Dawn of War game is in the works. It is said to be taking elements from DoW 1 and 2.

It was being planned to take CoHO's approach if this game performed well. As in, free to play. But CoHo flopped, so, possibly, it'll take a more traditional approach now.

In Danny Bilson's words (core games head at THQ):
"Now Dawn of War III, either way, is going to have a much larger strategic component to it, more of a global battle going on with little tactical things, sort of MMO-like."

There's going to be a reveal of an unnanounced game at Gamescon in Germany. There's the possiblity of DoW III being said game.

Sounds like they're plotting some kind of 'strategic map' sort of deal that will be advanced through gameplay by members of the different factions. Could be interesting to see what they have up their sleeves, anyway.
Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.

I was thinking like a galactic map of zone control where the individual ranked 'missions' affect the overall progress. But I could be entirely wrong. It has interesting implications anyway.

So like Galactic conquest in Star Wars Battlefront 2 but on a single planet where moving/unlocking from place to place is driven by the story?
I like that idea.
