What next for CA after warhammer 3?

SethsKidsSethsKids Posts: 6Registered Users
I bloody love the tww series and would probably prefer that CA keep the licence.

However it's a hard trilogy type deal from my understanding.

So what next for the fantasy team?

I'd like to hear your suggestions.

Mine is a bit obscure but I'd like to see a total war set in the world of Michael moorcocks elric series.

    Age of mythology meets total war. Greek, Egyptian, Nordic gods and beasts etc
    My ancestors are smiling at me, Imperial, can you say the same?

    The Elric series isn't that obscure on these forums, it crops up quite often, being such a big "inspiration".


    I don't really think it would work as a Total War style game, the Elric series. More a Witcher-like open world game.

    Even if it’s unlikely, the best fantasy settings for a total war game would be GoT and the Witcher.

    Playing as Nilfgaard would be so epic.

    I wouldn’t mind it if CA took the ambitious route and tried to implement a Warhammer 30k or 40k game.

    I'm hoping for more collaboration between CA and GW and I would love them to make a TW:WH 40K as another trilogy.

    They would need to make a lot of work to adapt TW to the 40K universe but that would be awesome.

    A great video from milkandcookies about it :

    Warhammer 40k would be my pick.

    I could see CA tackling Age of Sigmar as well though.

    Age of Sigmar is highly unlikely.

    Warhammer fantasy is popular becaue it already had several games before. So even people like me who never played TT know it.

    But there is nothing about Age of Sigmar outside of TT, so most casual players or fantasy fans never heard of it.

    And many who have heard of it cant stand it.
    Read all my replies as if we are having a pint and a good old time. I will always read your reply like that.

    Or possibly the world that Joe abercrombie made for the first law series.

    Honestly, if they could pull it off, I think they should make their own fantasy IP. They would no longer be restricted by lore, the lore would serve gameplay, not the other way around. They could make their own campaign map, their own races, and they wouldn't have to deal with other companies to implement what they want.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I think GW has been a hinderance on WHTW, but I don't see a problem with CA making their own fantasy world after Warhammer. The biggest problem they would face would be attracting an audience to a new world, and I think most non-historical purist total war players will at least look into it, and CA has created a new market for fantasy Total War games with Warhammer, a market they will most likely want to continue to be a part of after Warhammer.

    I figure warhammer 30/40k
    With how much of a letdown dow3 was it'd be nice.
    Bigger Budget for game 3?

    They're gonna need it for all of the monogod glory.
    Which will be the "4 distinct gods representing the different aspects of Chaos such as Khorne, Slaanesh, Tzeentch, and Nurgle." :blush: ^CA quote

    Thank you CA for seeing them as what they truly are.
    Let the Games Begin!

    So, how better advertise a franchise than through a new, good game?

    That's how a lot of people got into 40k, through dawn of war

    @DarkLordOfDarkness

    Well the problem with AoS is that it is... kinda „special“ and extremely weird.
    Even die hard warhammer fans don’t like it, so it isn’t the best setting to attract new costumers.

    I read about its lore in the lexicanum but stopped after some minutes becaue it is just trash, sorry but compared to the warhammer world it is just BS.
  • DarkLordOfDarknessDarkLordOfDarkness Posts: 204Registered Users
    @ArneSo yeah it is still underdeveloped and high fantasy theme doesn't suit a lot of people, but it didn't have a lot of time to develop. Imagine what fantasy battle was when it had just 4 years. It was probably whella more cringey and strange
  • davedave1124davedave1124 Senior Member Posts: 4,093Registered Users
    I'm think it's going to be AoS or WH 40,000.
  • CommisarCommisar Senior Member Posts: 1,208Registered Users
    They restart and go bigger! TWWH1 remake-boogaloo.

    I do think making their own fantasy world would also be good, they do seem to be going that way with the next Saga game, making units based off fantasy monsters. I don't see them going 40k, SEGA already has a game company with that IP and it really doesn't fit TW.

    There are no fantasy or historical teams. Each "team's" size grows and decreases, depending on the future plans. After Warhammer is released, attention will be focused on the expansion for 3k. Warring States I guess. After that, nobody knows yet. Could be a purely historical title, like mid/late medieval or a fantasy title, similar to age of mythology.

    I hope it's 40k.
  • binmiestabinmiesta Posts: 4Registered Users
    What we need is the an historical title for the years between 1400-1700sh. This is a period with so many conflict over various reasons. Ottoman invasion of Europe (vlad the impaler commander time), The war of the roses and the English civil war, The uncountable wars of religion during the reformation, Cossack uprisings, Formation of the Tsardom of Russia. Italian wars and so on .
