A couple of friends from CA informed me that Sega and Creative Assembly (CA are creators of the Total War series) have teamed up with a third party to create something that I’m very excited about, a series that I love is being revamped by CA.What is this series you may ask… well… it’s the Warhammer games. I’m so excited I’m imagining warhammer, but TOTAL WAR STYLE!
A new high-calibre development team has been set up at Creative Assembly’s UK studio to work alongside the existing Total War, Alien™ IP and Mobile teams on the first Warhammer title in the deal, scheduled to launch from beyond 2013.
“With this year being our 25th anniversary”, said Tim Heaton (Studio Director at Creative Assembly), “it seems fitting for us to embark on such a dream project with such a well-established partner. The incredibly rich and detailed Warhammer world is something we grew up with, and has left an indelible imprint on us as both designers and gamers.”
While Jon Gillard, Games Workshop’s Head of Licensing, commented saying
“We have enormous respect for SEGA and Creative Assembly and have felt for a long time that the combination of the enormously rich setting of the Warhammer world, and their stunning development talent is a match with huge potential,”
This first Warhammer game joins the eagerly-awaited Total War™: Rome II and the untitled Alien IP as one of five projects currently in production at Creative Assembly, now one of the largest developers in the UK and most importantly in Europe.
