From the company's website:
Dark Space Corp is a new company, founded by ex- Games Workshop stalwarts Rick Priestley & John Stallard, and a video games guy called Rik Alexander.
We’ve started a new company to solely focus on building Beyond the Gates of Antares for you and with you, and our mission is to make it the best wargame universe that has ever existed.
We have formed a partnership with Warlord Games who will help us produce and operate the game utilising their existing sales, warehousing and production infrastructure, so that we can focus on the game development, miniature design and community. Thanks to warlord we won’t have to worry too much about such things as production equipment, assembly lines and dispatch operations – we have all that covered already! The goal of Dark Space Corp is to bring the EPIC new Antarean universe to life WITH our community of backers at its heart.
