The next game from Creative Assembly is called Troy: A Total War Saga. The title was unveiled by PC Gamer, which shared an early image of its cover story via Twitter last night.

Creative Assembly is riding high after the success of Total War: Three Kingdoms, which was roundly praised by critics — including here at Polygon — as one of the best games in franchise history. It was unique for a number of reasons, including a dynamic diplomacy system with reactive non-player characters. It also featured two distinct modes of play, one that brought it more in line with the developer’s past historical wargames and another which pushed combat more toward the high-fantasy seen in Total War: Warhammer 2.

Little is known about Troy, other than the PC Gamer cover shared online. It shows what appears to be a bronze statue of two ancient Greek warriors armed with spear and shield. The tagline is “epic battle in a world of gods and monsters.” The subtitle leads us to believe the game will be part of the Total War Saga series, which so far includes Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia and Total War: Fall of the Samurai.

On Twitter, developers are teasing a reveal for 10 a.m. ET tomorrow.
