We know Jack, do you?
Total War is about as close to a perfect management and strategy game as you can get in my opinion. It expertly combines base building, resource management, and real-time combat. For years the Total War franchise had focused primarily on historic periods, traveling to ancient Rome, the Shogun era of Japan, and Napoleonic wars of colonization. Then they released last year’s Total War: Warhammer to a ton of success and developers Creative Assembly aren’t stopping.
While announcing another DLC pack and round of free updates for Total War: Warhammer, Creative announced that they are working on a sequel. This won’t just be an improvement on the original title, it’ll continue the vast Warhammer story line, and the developers are hoping to end up working it into a trilogy of games. In addition, Creative Assembly also announced that a separate team is working on another historic-based entry in the series. No word exactly when that one will be set, but most of their previous entries have gotten their own sequels except for Atilla. Maybe we’ll return to the plains of Asia, ruling by the horse and by war, or maybe someplace entirely new.
It’s great to see Creative Assembly get the recognition they deserve, and great to see Sega, their publisher, really support them.
