Black Lab Games recently held an AMA where they revealed that another story campaign is actually a possibility for Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector.

Black Lab Games created a reputation for supporting their games long after release, with Battlestar Galactica: Deadlock being a fine example of this philosophy. When Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector popped up, many fans started asking whether it would be the same with this game and the reply was it would depend on the engagement.

To this day, Black Lab's statement remained true as they kept releasing content packs of varying sizes in Battlesector, with the Necrons DLC slated for launch on April 21, 2022. This is what prompted an AMA on Reddit , which yielded interesting information about the game's future.

Necrons update will bring a new campaign, although it is the domination one, like what we've previously seen in Dawn of War: Dark Crusade and Soulstorm. As such, storytelling is not prevalent, which prompted one fan to ask whether story-driven campaigns would happen later on.

Once again, Black Lab's response was that it can indeed happen , should the players wish for it. 

"If this is something that is highly requested by the community, then it will be very seriously considered by the team. This statement is true about all your suggestions really, we are looking at what you guys most want.

For example, terminators were added to the game precisely because so many people requested their inclusion. Even though, they aren't strictly lore appropriate for the main story."

Additionally, the team noted that "narrative campaigns are great, but they are limited in their replayability" which is the reason why the Necrons DLC campaign took the planetary supremacy path. This way, the campaign can have randomised territory ownership each time it is started, offering players more replayability.

Still, the interest from the devs remains and they've asked players to chime in and suggest which stories they would like to see told in the Battlesector engine.
