Total War: Warhammer accidentally announced in new art book

New, 40 comments

Total War: Warhammer, a new entry in Creative Assembly's long-running Total War series, was announced accidentally following the release of a new official art book covering the history of the Total War series.

Total War Center user StormOfRazors noted the announcement in a quote from Creative Assembly's Mike Simpson, where he writes the studio is "taking the series to a fantasy setting with Total War: Warhammer."

No further information has been made available about the upcoming project. Polygon has reached out to publisher Sega for more details.

Creative Assembly first signed a deal to partner with Games Workshop in 2012 to develop a new series of games based on the Warhammer fantasy universe.

"With this year being our 25th anniversary," Creative Assembly studio director Tim Heaton said at the time, "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."
