Total War: Warhammer III has been hit with a delay into early 2022. The RTS was originally due to come out later this year.
The reasoning was pretty clear. Chief Product Officer Rob Bartholomew posted to the game’s official Twitter that the team needed more time. “We know this is disappointing, but the extra time means we can accomplish more than we could if we rushed to release this year,” said the announcement on Twitter. So while details aren’t there, we can assume more polish and refinement was needed for Total War: Warhammer III to really shine.
“While it’s tempting to rush to the finish line as it comes into view, we have made the decision to give it a little more time by moving the launch of Total War: Warhammer III from 2021 to early 2022.”
“The wait won’t be much longer,” he said to allay concerns. “And we’ll have plenty of new information for you in the meantime. The new date will make for a stronger release and the best first step into a new era for Total War: Warhammer.” Going along with this announcement, Bartholomew also teased “years of content and support”.
As a continuation of the ongoing trilogy of strategy games, Total War: Warhammer III was due to expand on the already massive roster of fantasy armies in the series. When it was announced back in February, things were looking up. The game would expand the scale of the real-time battles and add new factions to the already impressive world map. To help sweeten the bad news, Creative Assembly has announced that they will be revealing a new faction this week. further improving the roster.
Total War: Warhammer III will land in early 2022 on PC via Steam and the Epic Game Store.
