Sega releases '15 years of Total War' retrospective video; teases Warhammer adaptation in the process
To celebrate fifteen years of Total War games, Sega has released a retrospective video that charts the course of franchise from inception to present day.
Most tantalizingly, the trailer also appears to tease the Total War: Warhammer game that developer Creative Assembly apparently has on the boil but has yet to make official.
Jan van der Crabben, former designer for Empire: Total War, has warned his fellows that studios should brace themselves for a 70% drop-off of initial registered users with their free-to-play titles.
Speaking at a GDC Europe keynote, Crabben said whilst the majority play for a little bit and then leave to never return, those who make it a fourth day will generally keep coming back.
Creatively Assembly have shipped Total War: Shogun 2 and now have the Aliens IP to work on, but that doesn't mean history gets a break from the UK studio.
Already they're digging into their next Total War chapter, which they were working on "whilst we were finishing Shogun 2", said studio director Tim Heaton.
