So you may have heard something about 40k End Times coming soon. The basis for this rumor comes from this blog post: Endtimes for 40k? Let me just say I was instantly skeptical and as it turns out my skepticism was completely justified. The post has all the marks of someone hearing one thing and suddenly having their minds start spinning out of control coming up with justifications for whatever fantasy they want to believe.
How do I know the End Time rumor is bogus?
Well it was pretty easy I shot over an email to Graham McNeill himself and this was his response...
I refer you to this…

To quote the late, great Brian Glover, “This is rumour control, here are the facts…”
You may have seen a few rumours flying around t’interweb about the end times of 40k.
40k is NOT ending (well, beyond the mechanisms of the Golden Throne failing, the constant encroachments of alien invaders and the insidious corruption of Chaos…).
Context is everything…
This all came about after a conversation I had at the BL Weekender III, where I talked about things I’d LIKE to do in the next Ultramarines trilogy (not necessarily GETTING to do, but which I’d LIKE to do). One of the things I said was that I thought it’d be fun to bring Guilliman back, “probably not in a literal way, but in some form or another, and that such an event would, naturally, have further ramifications for the Chapter…”. I also said that I’d floated a bunch of ideas past the guys at editorial and had received a cautious, “That sounds pretty cool,” response.
And that’s it. That’s as far as any “progress” on this has gone.
So, get those panties unbunched, those knickers untwisted. Keep Calm and Keep Playing 40K.
As you can see 40k End Times, not so much.
At the last Gamesday UK the GW development team was the 40k End Times question and they emphatically said the Warhammer 40k is going to stay set at 49.99999999 for the foreseeable future.
