Warhammer 40,000. You’re going to be seeing that a lot throughout this article. Apparently THQ has a lot riding on the Warhammer license and they’re making the most of it at every turn. But that's not all...with WWE 12 and Saints Row: The Third headlining THQ’s all-star line-up of top notch games, THQ’s list for E3 2011 is surprisingly versatile with nearly something in there for everyone.

The company's CEO, Brian Farrell, commented in the press release, saying...
"With a dozen new titles on the show floor, our fiscal 2012 portfolio showcases our strategy in establishing and maintaining strong game franchises, developing new and innovative play patterns for kids and families, as well as our commitment to working with the best entertainment talent in the world."

“Strong game franchises” is almost an understatement, the WWE video game franchise is almost as important as any other annual sports title out there, and when you see what THQ has planned for the Warhammer franchise in the list below you’ll realize that THQ seems to be in it to win it.

You can check out the complete list of triple-A games below or head on over to the to learn more about the following titles. THQ will be attending E3 between June 7th and June 9th.
