Total War: Warhammer Teased by Sega and Creative Assembly
A new video released today by Sega and The Creative Assembly takes us through fifteen years of The Total War franchise, and in the process also teases the yet-to-be-revealed Warhammer installment.
Total War: Warhammher was accidentally leaked in January this year when fans spotted a reference to the game in The Art of Total War book. While neither the publisher nor the developer commented on the find, fans instantly connected the game to Creative Assembly’s deal from 2012 where it agreed to make multiple games in the Warhammer universe.
Back then, studio director Tim Heaton said that Creative Assembly would “be doing the Warhammer universe justice in a way that has never been attempted before.” It was assumed that the team would be making use of all of its experience with the Total War series to create something unique in the Warhammer universe.
There are eleven titles in the Total War franchise, with over 2,000 years worth of historical warfare. Over one million people play Total War each month, where each player has amassed over 104 hours of average game time in each game. In the past fifteen years, over 4.8 billion battles have been waged.
Creative Assembly’s upcoming titles in the Total War franchise include the digital and tablet spin-off Total War Battles: Kingdom, and the 10v10 team strategy title Total War: Arena. The former, and Total War: Attila will both be playable at the EGX Rezzed show this week.
