According to a report from, Pucino put the project's development cost at around $50 million.

Pucino didn't estimate the number of needed subscriptions for the game to turn a profit and recoup its development costs, but Pucino expects that the game will continue to generate revenue for several years. Warhammer 40,000: Dark Millennium Online is tentatively scheduled to launch by March of 2013.
