SEGA and Creative Assembly, the creators behind the popular Total War series of games have announced that they are joining forces with Games Workshop to bring the fantasy world of Warhammer to life on your screens!
“With this year being our 25th anniversary”, said Tim Heaton, Studio Director at Creative Assembly, “it seems fitting for us to embark on such a dream project with such a well-established partner. 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.”
With the phenomenal success of the Total War games it will be interesting to see if Creative Assembly take Warhammer in a similar direction or decide to do something else entirely.
With this pedigree behind it, this is definitely something for all us gamers and hobbyists to keep an eye out for.
