Developer Creative Assembly and publisher Sega have announced that the upcoming Total War: Warhammer 3, a turn-based strategy video game, will be delayed until next year.
According to the announcement on Twitter, the team has decided to push the launch of the game from 2021 to early 2022. Instead of rushing to finish the game just to meet the 2021 release, they are allotting more development time. Here’s the official statement from Rob Bartholomew, the Chief Product Officer of Total War:
With nearly a decade of development on the Total War: Warhammer trilogy behind us, it feels surreal to see its culminating chapter so close to release. 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, 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. We don’t consider his release the end of our trilogy, but the start of years of content and support as we continue to bring the jaw-dropping scale of Games Workshop’s fantasy universe of Total War.
Thanks for your patience and support.
Total War: Warhammer III Release Date
Unfortunately, the announcement didn’t reveal the exact launch date of Total War: Warhammer III. What we only got is the confirmation of the early 2022 release. But as mentioned by Rob Bartholomew, they will be giving more details about the game very soon.
