Total War developer signs exclusive Warhammer deal with Games Workshop

Format:
Creative Assembly, the British studio behind the Total War

Release Date: 06/12/2012

Creative Assembly, the British studio behind the Total War series, has announced it has entered into an ongoing deal with tabletop role-playing specialist Games Workshop to bring its hugely successful Warhammer series to consoles and PC. SEGA will publish the games, with the first one due in 2014.

"With this year being our 25th anniversary. It seems fitting for us to embark on such a dream project with such a well-established partner," says studio director Tim Heaton. "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."

It certainly seems like a match made in orc heaven, with Creative Assembly being one of the best strategy game developers around, and Warhammer being one of the most beloved strategy RPGs ever made.

Creative Assembly's Total War series has allowed players to command armies in Ancient Rome and Japan, Medieval Europe and the Napoleonic War. The most recent entry was this year's Total War: Shogun 2 expansion, Fall of the Samurai.

Warhammer is currently best known in video gaming for the Warhammer 40k science fiction spin-off. That franchise remains with THQ, which released the rather excellent Space Marine last year.
