Creative Assembly’s Fantasy Strategy series, based on the highly popular world from Games Workshop, has seen a lot of success amongst fans recently. However, the next installment was expected to launch later this year, but the developers have confirmed that unfortunately Total War: Warhammer 3 has been delayed until early 2022.
“With nearly a decade of development on the Total War: WARHAMMER trilogy behind us, it feels surreal to see its culminating chapter so close to release,” said the developers. “While it's tempting to rush to the finish line as it comes into view, we have made the decision to give it a little more time by moving the launch of Total War: Warhammer 3 from 2021 to early 2022,”
“The wait won't be much longer, and we'll have plenty of new information for you in the meantime. The new date will make for a stronger release and the best first step into a new era for Total War: Warhammer.”
“We don't consider this release the end of our trilogy, but the start of years of content and support as we continue to bring the jaw-dropping scale of Games Workshop's fantasy universe to Total War.”
There is some good news at least, as Creative Assembly confirmed that the reveal for the Grand Cathay faction is still going to go ahead later today. Not only will it reveal the Grand Cathay faction - “a land of harmony, of great celestial cities and dragons, and of one of the most powerful armies in the world.” - but it will also include more details about siege battles and the Realms of Chaos.
