Total War WARHAMMER

Though disappointing it’s only been delayed by a month and will allow Creative Assembly to make the best game for both fans of Total War and the WARHAMMER franchise. They had the following to say:

“This could be the best Total War game we’ve ever made. We don’t want to rush it. It’s an enormous game and we also want to make absolutely sure reviewers have enough time to play it thoroughly before launch. Many thanks to the huge number of people who have pre-ordered and are eagerly awaiting release day. We’re pulling out all the stops for you.”
