Hee guys! This is my first post here. I have been obsessively thinking for a while about how the future of Warhammer Total War and CA as a company looks like. I am still very qurious to hear their plan, but I have been trying to reconstruct what it would look like. I hope you enjoy the post and I would love to hear your idea's here.
General Warhammer: Warhammer will reach it's final instalment in game 3 and I think it will be the biggest instalment for the game. Difficulties for the game are: creating a balance between impulsive consumer attraction and monetising the previous 2 instalments as it might feel unattractive to invest in a game that is "incomplete" and requires such a large investment to fully enjoy to some of the audience, another difficulty I suspect is the lack of more "mainstream" or "pretty" factions like High Elves. These factions could possibly scale down the scope of Warhammer 3, however I am positive about this not being the case. The reason I think Warhammer 3 will not scale down the scope, is due to it's accessible and profitable solutions. I also believe the main focus of Warhammer 3 is to up the stakes and hold nothing back in terms of epic characters and scope of the game.
Warhammer 2: As announced there will be one more DLC to be released for Warhammer 2 (excluding pre order). I think the predicted Vampire Counts and Dark Elves is correct. The Free LL is more unclear as both factions stand on 5 LL and to current cap is 6. I think it's gonna be Nagash for count's and a free LL linked to this event. My best guess for free LL is Boris Todbringer.
Warhammer 3: I think Warhammer 3 will integrate with Warhammer 1 units (excluding LL's) and start with 12 playable faction Mortal Empires Campaign.
Empire: 2 (Kurt Helborg or *reworked* Karl Franz & Luthor Hess) LL's - Dwarfs: 2 (Grimm Burlocksson or Malakai Makaisson & Josef Bugman) LL's - Chaos: 2 (Archeon *reworked* & Sayl the Faithless) LL's - Norsca: 1 or 2 LL's (Mortkin &/or Melekh the Changer)- Beastmen 1 (Gorthor) LL - Greenskins 1 (Gorbad) LL
Unplayable; Bretonia - Woodelf - Vampire Count's
New: Pre-Order DLC Dog's of War (Borgio, Lorenzo Lupo). Ingame: Kislev (Tzarina Katarin, Boris Ursus) , Khorne (Skarbrand the Exiled, Valkia the Bloody), Slanesh (N'Kari, Dechala), Tzeentch (Kairos Fateweaver, Vilitch the Curseling), Nurgle (Ku'Gath Plaguefather, Valnir the Reaper)
DLC: Chaos Dwarf's - Ogre Kingdom's and maybe: Hobgoblins, Cathay, Nippon
Other DLC I think will be Simelar
I expect the next sage to be set in the 18th century and revolve around the Revolutions of the revolutionairy powers in US and France against the succesional powers of Britain and Spain. Maybe expanded if succesfull to like Dutch, Ottomans, Austria, Russia, Sweden ect. Troy might get 1 DLC when it releases on Steam that is free with a full Purchase of the game and cost like 10 Euro on the Epic Store. After that we will move on to Total War Medieval 3 in 2024.
Hope you enjoyed the post!
Edit: 2 more Dog's of War LL I expect to be added with each faction DLC.
