SEGA and Creative Assembly have announced that Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia has slipped to May.
Previously the first Saga spin-off of Total War was due to be out on April 19, but now it has a release date of May 3 to "incorporate changes we wouldn’t otherwise be able to implement". Details below.
