Total War Warhammer III will not be released this year
Total War Warhammer III moves the game to the eastern side of the Warhammer Fantasy World, focusing on the Kingdom of Kislev and the relatively unknown Empire of Cathay. The game will also include the four ruinous powers of Chaos; Nurgle, Slaanesh, Tzeentch and Khorne. These being are also known as the Chaos Gods.
The Total War team doesn't plan to be silent about Total War Warhammer III following its delay, revealing that the studio will showcase the game's Grand Cathay faction tomorrow.
Below is what Creative Assembly's Chief Product Officer, Rob Bartholomew, had to say about Total War Warhammer III's delay.
Total War Warhammer III will not end with Total War Warhammer
When confirming the delay of Total War Warhammer III, Creative Assembly confirmed that the game would be a "step into a new era for Total War Warhammer". Total War Warhammer will act as the "start of years of content and support", which means that the game will be supported through the release of DLC content and free updates over the coming years.
Total War Warhammer II was released in September 2017, and its last DLC pack was released this July. This gave Total War Warhammer II almost four years of support through the release of new content, both in the form of patches and free content add-ons and paid for DLC packs.
Creative Assembly has confirmed that Total War Warhammer III will be released with nine playable Legendary Lords at launch. This roster is expected to be expanded significantly over the coming years.
Total War: Warhammer III is coming to Windows PC, macOS and Linux through Steam and the Epic Games Store, with the game launching first on Windows. Feral Interactive will be working on the game's Linux and macOS versions, which will release as soon as they are ready.
