THQ seeking development partner for Dark Milennium Online MMO

THQ's in bad shape, but it's still forging ahead with its planned MMO, Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millenium Online. However, the beleaguered publisher won't be able to do it alone. During a financial briefing, the company revealed that it's seeking a development partner to complete the title.
Vigil Games was the studio THQ had initially tasked with developing Dark Millennium, but development efforts were later bolstered by resources from the THQ-owned Relic Entertainment. In yesterday's call, the publisher revealed that it's looking for another "partner" to help develop the game, due--at least, in part--to the cost and risk associated with developing a massively-multiplayer online title.
Due to the difficulty producing the game, Dark Millenium currently has a "fiscal 2014 and beyond" release window. At this point, however, there's no word as to who might be interested in helping craft it.
