“While the third part of the Total War: Warhammer trilogy continues to be our next major release at CA, it’s fantastic to be able to work with expert partners, to add a further experience for new platforms and players,” said Rob Bartholomew, Chief Product Officer for Creative Assembly. “Bringing our fantasy epic to millions of mobile players is another important step toward offering a Total War experience for every kind of strategy fan.”
“This product further establishes the truly global appeal of the Warhammer IP, and gives the opportunity for millions of new players to experience its grandeur and glory on a massive amount of mobile devices.” Said Jon Gillard, Global Head of Licensing at Games Workshop “Extending our wildly successful partnership with SEGA into a further one with Netease continues to show the power of this great long-term collaboration and we’re looking forward to welcoming many new fans into the world of Warhammer!”
The interesting partner between Sega and NetEase is an extension of the deal announced in August 2019, whereby NetEase Games secured publishing rights for Total War’s award-winning historical catalog.
Total War Battles: Warhammer is being developed with Unreal Engine 4, and promises to will reproduce and adapt the magnificent sweeping battle scenes and empire-building hallmarks of the series, all for smaller screens. A closed beta test is scheduled to release later this year on mobile devices.
