Black Lab Games Calls Time On Development Duties On Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector

A job well done

Black Lab Games has announced an end to development duties on Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector, officially handing over to fellow studio Slitherine after nearly five years on the project.

The Perth, Western Australian studio confirmed the handover today on social media, suggesting future projects are in the works but stopping short on what they may be.

On a post on their official site, Slitherine hinted on future DLC for the turn-based tactics game, suggesting a “broader scope” than existing content drops. Slitherine previously worked with Black Lab Games on Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy.

“Having the opportunity to develop a game set in the iconic Warhammer 40,000 universe has been an amazing experience,” Black Labs Games’ CEO and Creative Director Paul Turbett said, “We at Black Lab Games are grateful to Games Workshop for letting us play in their universe, to the players who have joined us on the journey so far, and to Slitherine for making it all possible. I can’t wait to see where the game goes from here, and I’m confident it’s in safe hands and has a bright future”.

Despite the changeover, the future for Black Lab Games seems bright, and whatever they have cooking next was clearly big enough to afford such a big change. What do you think? Are you as excited as we are to see what the Perth studio has up their sleeves? Let us know what you think in the comments below and on our socials.
