New Historical Total War Planned

A Total War: WARHAMMER II development update covers a lot of territory, just like a Total War game, discussing the complications of the kind of parallel development of several projects and updates they currently have on their plate (thanks K). They are not making this any easier on themselves, as they include this tidbit, "Plus, we also have the next full-blown historical era title in the works too. More on this next year." Other bases they cover include development of Thrones of Britannia, their first Total War Saga game, refining the Empire Divided expansion for Total War ROME II, and the complications of aligning all the elements they are developing for the Total War WARHAMMER trilogy. This is a lengthy post which includes a developer Q&A that explains why some aspects of their plan may seem out of order, such as launching a DLC campaign pack before Norsca makes it into Mortal Empires. They offer a roadmap that summarizes what to expect over the next six months:

December: Reprisal Update rollout for Mortal Empires. This contains equivalent Foundation Update skill/campaign improvements to Old World Legendary Lords and Chaos, and will also include some new changes and fixes for Mortal Empires. We’re also bundling in a free, new (and highly experimental!) game mode which we’ve had in our back pocket for a while now. More news on this later in the week.

January: Our first Campaign Pack was initially planned for this year, but will slip to January. Not to seem too… cryptic… but It’s a hugely characterful and significant addition to both Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires, and we’re pretty sure people are going to enjoy it. We’ll also be rolling out another Mortal Empires update alongside this release to address any further issues post-Reprisal Update.

May: Yes, this is a bit of a gap, but this is how long our painstaking re-implementation of Norsca will take to get added to Mortal Empires. This update will include Norsca and its full roster, updates to various aspects of the race (eg techs, New World race interactions) to make them appropriate and relevant as well as the 30th birthday Regiments of Renown. There will also be further updates to other aspects of Mortal Empires.
