IamNotArobotIamNotArobot Registered Users Posts: 4,562
News this month I bet, they won’t push the next WH2 DLC more.

From where did you all get “No WH2 news until may”?

*Exclusive DLCs for Tomb Kings, Vampire Coast, BM, CW and WE! #DLCsAreRacesToo
*Remaster all WH1 and WH2 faction icons for WH3!

    Hopefully they're over that Rome remaster garbage and get on with the last DLC already. The very last major change to game 2's ME map

    Here's hoping this or next week.

    It's definitely a possibility.
    However, they never specified when in May, so it can be announced in early May and technically release before they show off anything.
    Would like news sooner than May though

    Garbage? Rome 1 remastered is the best CA project since Rome 1

    Still think there is a chance we wont see a DLC till late may, June, or July. None of which bodes well for news this week. Given there usually isn't thaaat much time of announcement of a lord pack and actual release.

    But hey, they've been getting a lil different about it lately.
  • DraxynnicDraxynnic Registered Users Posts: 10,968
    The OP is right in that nothing that CA has said explicitly rules out WH2 DLC news this month.

    However, the Rome remaster is this month, and CA usually doesn't have multiple releases in one month competing with each other. This is, I think, why a lot of people aren't expecting DLC this month. It's one of those "not impossible, but highly improbable" situations.

    Won't be next week. That would put the DLC out on the same day as Rome Remastered. It's this week for an April release otherwise I'm pretty sure we won't hear anything until May for the DLC either.

    You know what I just realized?

    TBC Prepatch hits mid may, probably.

    Honestly odds are, I don't have a second to give CA...
    Campaign Management is for suckers.

    Are there really that many people who are excited about the Rome remaster? I played that game to death, a little touch up isn’t going to lure me back in.
  • IamNotArobotIamNotArobot Registered Users Posts: 4,562
    Everybody forgot WH3 and WH2 are different games with different teams and schedules with just a bit of joint marketing (modtly dates).

    Tuesday newsday.

    A remastered edition made by another studio, as well.

    Anyway, chances might be slim. The WH2 DLC could also be set to release around may/june if we're truly unlucky.

    Very unlikely. It would be wise to get done with game 2 before releasing info and trailers about game 3.

    A technicality, but CA might not even intend to release Warhammer 2 DLC until as late as July. As such, no news for another 3 months.

    It's still CA. The fact they have more than one studio has had no bearing on their marketing and release. They still divide them.

    This has been outsourced, though. But you're correct: T&T took around 7 months, and we're 4 months beyond its release. The WH2 DLC could be scheduled for june/july. We haven't had a GW-branch, either. So, april is already getting unlikelier by the day.

    If the WH2 DLC isnt revealed in April, then WH3 news ain't coming in May. They won't show both at same time.
    Albion would make the perfect Total War Warhammer 3 pre-order; with Hengus the Druid and Bran MacKerog as Legendary Lords.

    We're paying full price for a Chaos Warrior of Tzeentch without any actual Tzeentch markings or changes to the model? Change this now CA, #JusticeForTzeentch #TLM

    Is it possible that CA would release the last DLC LP for WH2 after the WH3 news in May?

    If development demands it, yes. I think they can complement one another.

    We don't know if WH3 news will be a frequently recurring thing every few weeks or so, like with WH2. But I'd guess so. So, WH2 news will have to be squeezed inbetween.

    You are not wrong. Warhammer II news is possible.
  • RikRiorikRikRiorik Registered Users Posts: 11,030
    I don't know what that 'no news until May' pertained to whether it was DLC or TWW3 or both. And it feels blissfully great to not really care about either possibility. In years before this one I would have cared and would have often been chomping at the bit for any news. Now days, weeks and months go by and I'm just glad when there is news and at total peace when there isn't.

    I expected something in 1st april. So i really don't expect anything this month. Better luck next month i guess. Altough it could be 8th april reveal but it is kinda unlikely since rome remastered is coming along.
  • IokkoIokko Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 1,007
    I'm starting to think we'll hear about Warhammer 3 before we hear about the wh2 DLC.

    Honestly rome 1 remaster screwed every schedule, I'm not so sure we will get anything warhammer before may.

    @Iokko @PoorManatee6197 I'm starting to feel the same way. Even an april reveal feels unlikely at this point. We may even look at june/july for the DLC's release.

    Yeah, embargos are still progressively lifting for Rome Remastered for various content creators but there’s still stuff they aren’t allowed to show, like the campaign intro movies.

    Considering how content creators are a large part of CA’s marketing strategy, I don’t see CA giving them multiple games to juggle content for and manage embargos with.

    No Warhammer (Game 2 or 3) news til Rome Remastered is released, so BOTH CA and content creators can give it their full marketing attention.

    Yup, i mean T&T came out what, 7 months after W&P? Assuming it's another cross game pack (I'm in the Beastmen camp) the long development time might be because of the old world rework, so the June/July timeline you're suggesting isn't unreasonable.

    I was expecting CA to clear the decks for TWW 3 and get the DLC out asap. Does not look like that now. Embargoes still to be lifted on the Rome remaster: 16th for BI and Alexander DLCs and 23rd restrictions on turns lifted according to Lionheart.

    I didn't even know Rome was being remastered. How many side projects can CA squeeze out before TWW3 hits the market :D ?
