Warhammer Coming To Total War Series
An art book for the Total War series that was supposed to release at the end of January has already made its way into the public and has spoiled something many have been expecting since Creative Assembly announced they had made a deal to produce Warhammer games. Total War will be expanding their titles beyond historical by creating a Total War game in the Warhammer Fantasy setting.
The art book includes a quote written by Mike Simpson of Creative Assembly;
For most strategy games, multiplayer is almost all of the experience or, at the very least, a sizeable chunk of it. We're also experimenting with this in the mobile space with Total War: Kingdom, and taking the series to a fantasy setting with Total War: Warhammer.
These games are being made by a new team specifically for the Warhammer property and won't be taking away from the historical titles such as the upcoming, Attila. While we haven't seen magic in any previous Total War titles, it is likely Sega will have no problem adapting to the franchise with their experience in medieval warfare simulation so far. This doesn't include the 40K universe yet, but one can hope.
