Hold the line.
Total War Warhammer 3 is delayed to early 2022, Creative Assembly has announced.
The hotly-anticipated strategy game was due out late 2021.
“We know this is disappointing, but the extra time means we can accomplish more than we could if we rushed to release this year,” the UK studio said in a statement.
“The wait won’t be much longer, and we’ll have plenty of new information in the meantime. The new date will make for a stronger release and the best first step into a new era for Total War: Warhammer.
“We don’t consider this release the end of our trilogy, but the start of years of content and support as we continue to bring the jaw-dropping scale of Games Workshop’s fantasy universe to Total War.”
Total War: WARHAMMER III will now release in early 2022.
