I am no fan of Warhammer, but if you are, okay. I am still skeptical about the way Total War is heading: I feel like it is going more and more to profit instead of working on the niche it has, and that it is trying to broaden its fanbase to much, but that asides as it is a personal opinion. They said they have two teams working: one warhammer, one historical. However, it seems like Warhammer is hijacking Total War, as they put way more time and personnel into Warhammer.
A quote I found from CA was this:
"The sequel is now in full production, with the majority of CA staff on Total War working through the huge content plan for the second part of the trilogy."
"...majority....". I understand that it was planned, but if Warhammer keeps on so succesful I am afraid they will keep busy with Warhammer. They released a Warhammer game now, when will the following? And then, will there be another Warhammer trilogy because it was so massively succesful, to fill up the "massive and rich" lore of Warhammer? Total War is inviting hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of Warhammer fans into the Franchise. Profitable wise, that is a smart move, but it will make any choices concerning the smaller and smaller growing "historical" fanbase less prioritising. Seeing that CA already acknowledged that the majority of their team works on Warhammer (while we, historical fans, have to hear the mantra that there is a supposed equal two teams working on warhammer and history), and that a next Warhammer game has been released not one year off the previous Warhammer, will the loyal history fan not be neglected in the future? That is worrying me.
Pro gloria Imperi!
