So sad, all the warhammer junkies are getting their love while us historical lovers have to wait...don't get me wrong I've loved WH since 15 but im really a historian at heart and i appreciate the new fantasy thing but im really hurting for historical. nobody's even on these attila forums or threads anymore its so depressing.

    It can come across almost like the historical fans have been discarded to be honest, the lack of news, the conspicuous absence of any of the 30th anniversary love, it's easy to feel like the history games and their fans have become some sort of footnote...


    ...I don't think it's really the case at all, though. They've got a bunch of history projects on as they've told us. Probably just slight communication fail from CA.

    CA, why don't you call home once in a while? We've been worried sick. :p

    I can't wait for them to move on from this Warhammer crap. Pretty disgusted to see people falling over themselves to buy Warhammer "2" also.

    IMO looks like people paying to buy the same game twice.

    Consider me a Total War bittervet. Started with original Shogun, and not a fan of their new marketing model.

    If releasing a new game with a new map and all new units on the same engine doesn't count as a real sequel then almost no Total War games do, either.
    I'm always this grumpy, so it is nothing personal.

    I couldn't agree with you more. I have TW:Warhammer 1 but just couldn't get into it, so I passed on purchasing WH2.

    The only thing I'm hoping for is that the next historical title isn't dumbed down and missing every feature that made TW:Attila the best game CA ever developed imho. If all or most of the campaign features are missing in the next historical title then I will stop buying their games and find another PC genre to get into. I'll be sad though since I have been a CA customer since Rome1 and have every historical title.

    I hope CA has realizes that their real fans are the historical ones , the Warhammer fans are clearly not going to stick around and will abandon CA en masse once the fantasy title has run its course.

    No, that you were never sold an entire game the first time is what it is.

    That is absurd. The amount of variation in models, skeletons and animations in the launch of the first TWW by far eclipsed anything in their previous games. To have expected all of that plus the additional content added in game 2 is unreasonable.

    Thanks for keeping the thread alive, I do hope also we get a work OFF ATTILA for our historical and not a work off this warhammer style. what im expecting and hoping is this is only a fantasy style sub design and works for WH but obv will not be ok with us via a next historical. All we want is some drop in news. The last news was 3 months ago. And it was zero detail

    The reduction of campaign features (politics, settlement infrastructure, etc...) is to match the Warhammer setting. I'm pretty confident that in those regards, the next historical title will more resemble Attila. Hopefully we will get information soon.

    Ah... and here I find my like-minded colleagues, lamenting the poor state of affairs, like I am.

    Yep. I think I've worn a hole in AOC and been reduced to playing as the Sassanids for something different to do.
