Good news to PC only gamers, huh?

General Manager of Relic Entertainment said;
“The loyal PC audience is incredibly important to us here at Relic so we are delighted to be able to announce the PC version of the game.”
Not to be left out of the press relese, Travis Plane, Vice President of Global Brand Management added;
“Delivering great content the fans want to play is the key goal in the core games division at THQ so we are pulling out all of the stops to make this the best possible game for PC and console audiences alike.”
The game is due out in early 2011. The Space Marine site is already up; with an age check so that seems to suggest the content will be brutal.
