Sega is teaming up with Total War developer Creative Assembly and Games Workshop to develop a new series of games based on the Warhammer fantasy universe, the publisher announced today.
The first title in the multi-title deal will be designed by a new development team within Creative Assembly's U.K. based studio, with plans to launch the game beyond 2013.
"With this year being our 25th anniversary," said Creative Assembly studio director Tim Heaton, "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. We'll be doing the Warhammer universe justice in a way that has never been attempted before. We're bringing those 25 years of experience and expertise in extremely high-scoring games to bear, delivering a Warhammer experience that videogamers will absolutely love."
Alongside the new installment in the Warhammer franchise, Creative Assembly currently has five projects in production including Total War: Rome 2 and an untitled Alien IP.
