Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War delivers a level of visual detail never before seen in an RTS. Hundreds of units clash on the battlefields of the dark future, unleashing massive destruction through a stunning battery of long-range weaponry before closing in for the finish. Incredible kill animations bring science fiction combat to life like never before, and the gritty future-gothic Warhammer 40,000 setting provides a striking tableau for the chaos and carnage of this grim, dark future, where there is only war!

No. Zero chances. There are lack of animator's in community. Even more demanded models are still absent. Dreadknight, Triarch Stalker, Blood Slaughter, Wraithknight, Riptide, etc... There is no one to invest efforts in the mutated spacemarines, which requires modeling and animating.

But you must ask this man, Moddb.com ! Maybe, he will be happy to start a new mod with placeholders.

Not to mention the coming MMORPG. I fear Dawn of War will go the way of Warcraft. RTS is becoming an endangered genre.

Are you kidding me? No, that's not what it's like at all! Relic planned on releasing the game at the same time, Sega had nothing to do with the release date or even the production of the game, especially since it was already complete (for the most part) when they were bought. Sega is not a tyrannical corporation.
As for Space Hulk, the game was not even affiliated with Sega, it was an indie game and was not even published by anyone near Sega.
Now, for the graphics. Company of Heroes 2 has a totally new engine (admittedly, mostly created for the game mechanics) had great improvements from the one used in Dawn of War 2. The engine, once again, had nothing to do with Sega, especially since it was built a dramatically long time before Sega even purchased the company. Company of Heroes 2 uses the Essence 3 Engine, which is one of the, if not, the number one engine for any RTS. I don't have the numbers of vertices rendered, but it is quite a good engine. The engine for Company of Heroes (Essence Engine 2) was re-tooled for Dawn of War 2, which had many improvements to the graphics from CoH. THEN they built an entire new engine for Company of Heroes 2 and made a significant change.

Now, for the Russian community. They got angry because the Russians were portrayed as "monsters" because Relic told the truth about their side of the war. The are filled with propaganda and feel that mother Russia is just in what it does and are proud in what it has done. They have been only told of the atrocities of the Germans, not the ones that they have committed. They were angry because the game was showing people truly how awful the Russians had behaved during the war. Stalin DID kill more people than Hitler, you know. It just goes to show, history is told by the victors.
As for Sega using Relic just to make money, I don't believe that is so. As you can see by what I have stated, we have not even see what a Relic-Sega game looks like. If you read about Sega obtaining Relic at the auction, you'll even see how delighted the publisher's workers were. They dreamed of working with such an RTS Sci-Fi giant.
I am excited to see what is to come! Also, Games Workshop gave the license to Sega so they can make Warhammer games. Relic is getting a larger budget than they ever have with THQ (although, I do miss our beloved THQ) and they get more resources, such as what Creative Assembly has developed. I have high expectations for their new games. Don't be scared of change, no matter what you do, it will happen. Instead, enjoy it and attempt to find things about change and stop being bitter.

Highest Rated (19 agree) 10/10

For 6 years now I have been playing Dawn of War. Modding it gave me that extra plus.

8/10 because it is a really good game. I am however ashamed that Relic stopped at Soulstorm.

10/10 because I always experienced something new in it.

10/10 100% warhammer

10/10 for Dawn of War I and Winter Assault campaign

7/10 for Dark Crusade and Soulstorm campaign

10/10 for your epic stories and hard work combined.

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 5/10

So much more could have been done, that was ignored during development.
Betas should of had more input.

Only saving grace is that there is a Modding community with which to complete the incomplete game... :(
