There are a shit-ton of Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40,000 video games these days, thanks to the generous licensing policy that Games Workshop have adopted over the past few years. One of the better ones is 2015's Mordheim: City of the Damned by Montreal developer Rogue Factor, which is based on the Warhammer Fantasy tabletop game of the same name. In the final line of his generally positive review of Mordheim, Darth Roxor said that he wouldn't mind seeing Rogue Factor deliver an adaptation of Necromunda, a similar tabletop game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Well, guess what:

After a successful first collaboration on Mordheim™: City of the Damned™, released on PC and consoles, Focus Home Interactive and Rogue Factor today proudly announce a new partnership with Games Workshop to begin development of Necromunda: Underhive Wars, the adaptation of cult classic tabletop game Necromunda, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars is a turn-based tactical RPG. Rival gangs of ruthless warriors are locked in an endless war for control of the Underhive, a gigantic warren of derelict factories, rusted metal husks, and forgotten technologies. Anarchy, violence, betrayal and death rule this hellish place, long forsaken by any semblance of civilization.

“Rogue Factor's collaboration with Focus and Games Workshop is a story of trust, hard work, and true passion for the Warhammer Universe. Our adventure began by building the foundations of Mordheim: City of the Damned Early Access. Regarded as a highly successful and well-executed endeavour, the Early Access of Mordheim: City of the Damned gathered a vast number of passionate gamers that helped foster an amazing community and improved many aspects of the game. After a strong launch on PC and consoles, and an incredible experience with many lessons learned, the way was paved for our next step in conquering the tactical RPG genre: Necromunda: Underhive Wars.”

Yves Bordeleau, General Manager at Rogue Factor.

“We are delighted to welcome Necromunda: Underhive Wars to the catalogue of great games based on our worlds and settings. Rogue Factor and Focus Home Interactive made a wonderful Mordheim: City of the Damned game and having done such a great job they're clearly the right people to realize the nightmarish world of Necromunda. Now fans of this unique and highly influential IP will at last be able to pick up their stubber and search for cool archaeotech whilst wiping out rival gangs throughout the Underhive.”

Jon Gillard, Head of Licensing at Games Workshop.

More info will be unveiled at What's Next de Focus event in Paris, on February 1st and 2nd.
The game has an official website, but it's devoid of any information, so that's basically all we know for now. They are calling it an RPG (unlike Mordheim which was generally only referred to as a "tactical game") so perhaps we'll pay a bit more attention this time.
