The game’s development process is now complete and… the first patch should be in progress.

There’s a nice announcement from Relic Entertainment itself:

As you see, there was a cheerful cake and a lot of happiness because of Dawn of War III going gold. That basically means that the team has completed the work and a master disc with the game is ready.

Now it’s time for your precious boxes with the game to be produced, while the digital copy is prepared for the Steam release. And, as you know, there’s an open beta coming, so we expect the first patch to be on the way as well – it should include some fixes thanks to the data collected during testing period.
