Sega and developer Creative Assembly have accidentally confirmed Total War: Warhammer.
Long rumoured to be in development, Total War: Warhammer has been inadvertently revealed by the publisher and developer.
The confirmation came in the form of a line mentioning the game in The Art of Total War book.
The reference was spotted by a Total War Center.net user within a quote from Creative Assembly’s Mike Simpson, which reads:
“We’re also experimenting with this in the mobile space, with Total War: Kingdom, and taking the series to a fantasy setting with Total War: Warhammer.”

Creative Assembly signed a deal to make multiple games in the Warhammer universe, but was busy working on Total War: Rome 2 and Alien: Isolation at that time.
Most people didn’t believe any such Warhammer related titles would be announced for quite some time. Over two years later, we finally have such an announcement, albeit indirect.
Back in 2012, Sega said that Creative Assembly’s focus would be on the “Warhammer universe of fantasy battles”.
“We’ll be doing the Warhammer universe justice in a way that has never been attempted before,” said Tim Heaton, Studio Director at Creative Assembly, in 2012. “We’re bringing those 25 years of experience and expertise in extremely high-scoring games to bear, delivering a Warhammer experience that video gamers will absolutely love.”
We currently don’t know anything else about Total War: Warhammer, including a potential release date for the game.
