    Thanks for the headsup. Was to be expected, and I don't mind a delay of a few months.

    Also, Cathay reveal tomorrow! Hype!

    I mind. Because it has been 4 years since WH2. I mind because they said 2021 to us and they have waited two months just to tell us it's gonna be delayed. I mind because They said 2021 knowing they couldn't meet the deadline, but said it anyway for their investors and shareholders. Yes I DO mind.

    If the game isn't ready then its the right decision irrespective of how disappointed people (me included) are.

    Also it was pretty obvious to most sensible people that it wasn't going to come out this year, based on what we had seen up to this point, so is no great surprise.

    I'm all fine with the delay, the game needs the time it'll need to be in an acceptable state. No Rome 2 launch, thanks you.

    I do hope, however, that we're not back to 5 weeks for 2 races of drip-feed, and breaks all throughout !

    Expected this but yeah give it all the polish you can give it.

    Better a well made game than a rushed and bugged one, time to wait a bit.
  • AbmongAbmong Registered Users Posts: 3,649
    I had a sense the schedule was a bit too tight since the Pre-order hasn't been revealed yet either. Now expecting
    Pre-order reveal Nov-Dec. and WH3 release around March 2022

    Well look forward to the Cathay reveal tomorrow with great anticipation and dread in equal measure. Fingers crossed it's not too far from how I imagined the faction.

    God i really hope the Cathay reveals are interesting; because this has to be one of the most impressively botched pre-release campaigns in the history of video gaming...

    "John Romero's About To Make You His ****" is my favourite, but this one is good too.

    Honestly not surprised at all. Was actually expecting this. Game was supposed to come out in like a couple of months time theoretically, and we still had no official day of release.
    It was waaay too suspicious.

    Can't wait for Cathay tomorrow though.

    Incredible how long it took them to figure out this..

    After so many "Soon"'s back in spring and then delaying the whole marketing in July. Just to come back with another delay, jikes...

    Is CA becoming the the next Blizzard?

    And you know all this stuff how? Did your magic crystal showed it to you?

    I don't know if you have noticed, but we are still in the middle of a global pandemic, with developers having to work from home, the entire reason they only gave us the "late 2021" date instead of a more conrete thing, is because it wasn't sure to begging with.

    Idk why CA needs extra time while they have had time since 2019 (at least!). Remember that they have had separate team working on this game. WH2 was made in 1 year! WH3 is 30-40% similar to WH2 in many parts; unless many things are going to be changed in the game including new ME map from scratch! I think 2022 is too late for a 2016 core game! Anyway, have you noticed we haven’t any new total war title released in 2021?☹️
    I hope to see Medieval 3 in 2022 too.
    Total War player until my last day!

    I'm genuinely curious at this point whether CA is going to go a full 12 months before we see the pre-order.

    Well they're not going to take the risk of announcing a release date unless they can be sure it's the right one.

    I mean thanks god they say in the july post (they knew at this point to delay it)

    that we get the pre order reveal as well.

    But wouldn't be suprise.

    Everyone already knew CA couldn’t **** live up to the promised 2021 release. Pretty ridiculous the pre-release has been this much of a debacle by a triple a company.

    But sure, “early” 2022, I’ll see you in May
  • duglandtotoduglandtoto Registered Users Posts: 443
    Ok CA, Here is the deal.

    No hard feelings really.

    But News everyday. Never quiet.

    Yes Yes?

    You don't really understand much on the release date side of things do you?

    So why are you out of the salt mines?

    There are faction mods you can try, like OVN Lost Factions.

    You do you boo, just make sure it's in a stellar state when we get it and I'm content.

    Yes you're totally stuck playing only Warhammer 2 until May 2024, suck it up.

    Poor old Simone.

    We were all slating the appalling marketing when the poor bugger had nothing finished to work with or show us. No wonder we got oddly poor LL posters and unit spotlights that seemed half-finished.

    Does explain a great deal, makes me wonder how long they've known.
