With Total War: Warhammer III set to expand the strategy game series into the Realm of Chaos, its Mortal Empires melting pot is due for another shake-up. That’s thanks partially to the new factions arriving in the next game, but may also incorporate as-yet unreleased products from Warhammer publisher Games Workshop.
Games Workshop blew up its long-running Warhammer Fantasy Battles game in 2015 with a cataclysmic event that led to the Age of Sigmar – an almost completely new set of armies, models, settings, and rulesets. In 2019, however, the company announced that it was working on Warhammer: The Old World – a return to the original setting that Archaon had destroyed.
Total Warhammer III game director Ian Roxburgh tells us that Creative Assembly has an “extensive plan” for its Warhammer series that extends well beyond the launch of Total War: Warhammer III. That will of course involve the run of DLC add-ons and free updates that each of the games has enjoyed, and Roxburgh hints that there’s “flexibility” to account for what’s happening on the tabletop side. That could mean changes to factions that have been in the Total War fantasy series since day one.
