Post Total War developer gets Warhammer video game license

The Creative Assembly, developers of the popular Total War simulation series, have announced a partnership with Sega to make a series of games based on Games Workshops' popular Warhammer license.

An entirely new team is being set up at the UK developer to handle the franchise, with plans to release its first game "beyond 2013," according to an announcement today. There are no details yet on what specific direction The Creative Assembly is planning to take with its video game adaptation of the tabletop wargaming franchise, but Studio Director Tim Heaton promised to "[do] the Warhammer universe justice in a way that has never been attempted before." The new titles shouldn't affect the development of Total War: Rome II or the unnamed Alien-based project currently underway at The Creative Assembly.

THQ and Sega representatives told Eurogamer that the new licensing deal does not affect the future of the related Warhammer 40,000 license, which is currently controlled by THQ. Relic Entertainment's 40K game Dark Millennium is still targeted for an early 2013 release, but THQ announced earlier this year that the title was being scaled back to focus more on single-player gameplay, after starting development as an MMO way back in 2007.
