There is more to be found.... I've posted all I could about it.

Read this in this morning's The Times on a small blurb on p33 of their Business section.
"Games' Virtual Advance
Games Workshop, the maker of table-top miniatures, has signed a licensing deal with Zattikka to develop 3D free-to-play computer games based on the former's Warhammer 40,000 game. Zattikka, an AIM-quoted developer, said that the deal would stretch across PC and Mac platforms, as well as tablet computers."
I'm not sure what it's related to, but thought I'd let you know.
All the best,
Zattikka signs digital publishing agreement with Games Workshop®
ZATTIKKA PLC ('ZATTIKKA' OR THE 'COMPANY')
LONDON, MARCH 12, 2013
Zattikka, the digital games entertainment group, is pleased to announce it has signed a license agreement with Games Workshop®, the UK quoted specialist of fantasy tabletop miniatures, games and novels, to develop tactical, 3D isometric, free to play games based on the gigantic city leveling Titans from their world renowned Warhammer® 40,000® universe.
Warhammer 40,000 is one of the most recognisable ‘science-fantasy world’ genres and forms the basis of a number of Games Workshop’s tabletop, role-play, board, card and gaming products. Today’s announcement will see Zattikka develop a game incorporating single, multi-player and social gaming modes, delivering both single and chain mission tactical experiences across a broad platform range, including PC/Mac and tablets.
The game will be developed in the Company’s US game studios, and is expected to launch next year. Zattikka will also develop additional downloadable content, designed to prolong the gaming experience well after its initial launch.
The Warhammer 40,000 franchise was originally launched in 1987 and now boasts a huge range of products including world leading wargames, New York Times bestselling novels, and multi million unit selling video games, as well as multiple card, board and roleplaying games.
Mark Opzoomer, CEO of Zattikka commented:
"We are delighted to be working with Games Workshop on such a prestigious and important gaming franchise. Warhammer 40,000 is one of the most globally recognisable science fantasy genres, appealing to a broad cross section of gamers.”
Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing of Games Workshop commented:
"Titans have been around since the early days of Warhammer 40,000 when they first appeared in our ‘Adeptus Titanicus’ game, and have been a firm fan favourite ever since. Seeing these massive engines of destruction fight it out in an online game is going to be fantastic.”
