[Speculation] A Third Person Warhammer game in works from CA?

MagosHalMagosHal Registered Users Posts: 10
This article suggests that there might be one in development from CA Sofia: https://www.pcgamesn.com/total-war-warhammer-3/third-person-fantasy-game

Keyword being MIGHT. All just speculation and rumors for the time being. The article's key points as to why this may be a Warhammer Third Person game is because apparently:

1) It has a “a vast fictional world to life” in an “epic fantasy universe,” which it also calls “medieval” and features “realistic, ‘dark and gritty’ visually appealing environments.”
2) And "it specifically requests familiarity with Total War games, “especially Total War: Warhammer.”"

But if you'd like to entertain the possibility that it might be true, please comment below with your thoughts and speculations.

    A Warhammer Fantasy RPG would be a dream come true, the potential would be massive.

    Would I entertain the thought of a third-person Warhammer Fantasy RPG?
    I would everyday.

    If it would be in the spirit of witcher 3 I would likley play the heck out if it.

    Imagine playing a witch hunter or sigmarite priest traveling through a province of the Empire solving cases, uncovering cults and necromancers and such. That would be awesome

    Though given that CAs latest project is a team-based scifi shooter called hyenas, I doubt they will keep stuck with the warhammer IP. Indeed they previously did do Halo Wars 2 and Alien Isolation as well. So I expect something else but warhammer for now.

    I just hope it’s more like Witcher and less like Elden Ring.

    I think there's an RPG element like Skyrim were you can build things and possibly develop a settlement.

    Honestly a FromSoft style WH game would be amazing. The resurect mechanic would even be amazing if melded into the player playing a Daemon or something interesting like that.

    But yeah maybe the first WH RPG should be a more Witcher or Skyrim style experience.

    Shadow of Mordor-style Alith Anar game is what I want.

    I'll hold my breath, I've had so many misses about larger RPGs. Either handed to crap companies or some complications that tanks them.

    How do we know it's a Warhammer title? GoT TW anyone?

    It's inferrence. The line "Familiar with previous Total War games, especially with Total War Warhammer"



    It's a third person melee combat medieval fantasy game, it shares little in the way of game design with total war style 4X-RTT games. So, logically, the familiarity with Total War Warhammer is about the "Warhammer" bit

    It has been long time ago I was thinking of a Skyrim version of Warhammer FB universe.

    It could be a very cool game if not one of my favorites.

    That's fair, they aren't for everyone. But if any universe could pull off a SoulsBorne game amazingly well, the WHFB one is it.

    Each to their own I guess, but you have to admit you are rather in the minority with that opinion :tongue:

    But I do think the issue with a Witcher style game is the possible lack of customisation and character selection. I think the strength of a Skyrim style RPG, or alternately something like Pillars of Eternity or Divinity Original Sin, is the ability to play as a variety of races and such.

    Eldenring. But warhammer.
    Request scorched body textures, and fire death effects. At least 30% of all damage in this game comes from fire sources. Request Fire for the Fire God DLC.

    Witcher/Skyrim and not Elden Ring like please
