Sega and Creative Assembly, the developer behind the highly successful Total War series of games, have announced a multi-title licensing deal with Games Workshop.
Tim Heaton, Studio Director at Creative Assembly, said, “The incredibly rich and detailed Warhammer world is something we grew up with, and has left an indelible imprint on us as both designers and gamers. We’ll be doing the Warhammer universe justice in a way that has never been attempted before.”
In order to achieve this, a new development team has been formed at Creative Assembly to work on the first of several games set in the popular Warhammer universe. The game is expected to be released sometime after 2013.
