Total War: WARHAMMER Accidentally Revealed?

The Total War Center Forums have a post from a user named StormOfRazors who received an early copy of a book called The Art of Total War, which shows off the visuals created over the years for the strategy franchise (thanks IncGamers). This seems to accidentally spill some beans about the future of the series, as it contains references to an unannounced game called Total War: WARHAMMER, a concept which dovetails nicely with the collaboration between Creative Assembly and Games Workshop announced a bit over a year ago. The post includes pictures to help confirm the news, so if this is a hoax, it is particularly elaborate. The reference is brief, but clear. Here it is: "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."

The last Total War games since Shogun 2 weren't so stellar to say the least.
That is one game, Rome 2. Unless you count the extension of Shogun2 as a separate game but in that case you are out of your mind because Fall of the Samurai was fantastic.

Honestly the TW naysayers have become some of the most whiny "$ยง)&s on the internet. No, I didn't especially like Rome 2 either (I should try it again, 253 patches later, but I haven't had the time or motivation yet), but all TW games had their issues. Shogun was extremely rough in many respects, Medieval needed medmod (who remembers that?) to become playable and the first Rome was a clusterfuck in terms of authenticity, bugs and game design (the worst unit balancing in the history of the series). Only Total Realism or one of the other total conversions fixed it years later. And Medieval 2 is the only game of the whole series I never really enjoyed (I still have some hope for Rome 2 :P). All of them required copious patching (can't remember for Medieval 1 actually) to become playable at all.

And you know what, despite all that they were great games (Medieval 2 excluded). The scope of TW is simply so ambitious that no game will ever be perfect and for the first half dozen entries people seemed to understand that but suddenly somebody started an internet rage circlejerk and now everything is just terrible. It's like Statler and Waldorf.
