    I respect Rob Bartholomew's decision to postpone the release of latest installment. It's no easy task to argue against marketing department and higher ups, who want to release the project ASAP. If he prioritizes quality of the product, that effectively means he has our best intersts at heart, and we shoould support him.

    Dissapointing but cant say I am suprised. Better if they release later than unfinished

    lol I bet all gaming publishers and developers utterly despise CDPR for making the consumer base hyper sensitive to delays

    Nah. They're thankful for CDPR for providing the the default format for the delay apology announcement that they all use now.

    Well, screw CDPR anyway. They basically created a cult around their studio, rallying fans against bad corporate practices and other **** things related to the gaming industry, while still being complicit in doing a lot of those themselves.

    I think The main reason of these types of delays is Saga series which keep CA busy. CA could have easily put attention on making a main game per 2 years and support each with a bunch of DLCs instead of making games like Troy. They could have put Saga team on preparing main games for consoles instead. With Saga series, as a result, we see a 2022 release window for a 2016 core game! The God knows when we would see Medieval 3 and Empire 2!!

    SAGA teams are differente teams, they work in another country.
    I know. They could have been working on main games instead in order not to see delays like this one after 3 years of development!!!!

    That is fine. Delays happen. And a good product is more important than a bad product earlier.

    But work on your communication. This and other things should be on constant basis. Atleast monthly if not weekly. Your marketing is terrible. But your product is amazing so you can keep having the worst marketing and still do great (ofc you would do even better with proper communication).

    That's a good point. Compare this to the stream of communications we've had since Victoria 3 was announced, for example. One game I feel like I'm following the development of, one feels like a product someone wants me to buy. Ultimately they're both the latter, but only one of them do I feel involved in.

    We better be getting an early preorder bonus in that case.

    It got Buggy with dlcs.

    The start was pretty solid

    This is CA, more development time does not equal a better release.

    Look at how long it took them to fix norsca. They also can’t even have mortal empires in at release.

    May/June release means we will be getting the combined map this time next year. That’s ****.

    My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.

    It seems CA only did painting during 2019-2020 and started making the game since late 2020😂

    A shameful display.

    Cool, now maybe I'll actually find time to play Troy: Mythos before the next WH game comes.
  • FinishingLastFinishingLast Registered Users Posts: 4,729
    Not unexpected and hard to be too upset about. I'd rather have a good game than an early game. Way too late in announcing it though. At this point, it comes out when it does. Lots of other games to be more excited for.

    Simone already told us whats happening. The executives have decided they can do a better job at marketing than the people they hired specifically for that role.

    Well...It would be nice if they gave an actual reason for the delay. It's been three years since Warhammer 2. Its not like they are building a new game on a new engine. All of the tech is already built out so I'm not sure where I stand on this. Warhammer 3 has got to be very polished with actual big changes and innovative ideas.

    If Warhammer 3 runs as poorly as the other two titles I'll be very disappointed. They showed off Laboratory tech a long time ago and still haven't integrated it into the game.

    Get the pitchforks!!! >:)

    Seriously though, I'd rather have a polished game than a train wreck launch.

    It d be nice to get a FLC for part 2 while we wait - Neferata, Scycutter, Red Duke, Boris or anything useful for the game.

    my guess is either Thrones, T3 and Troy ate into resources. Or the WH2 DLC did.

    I think the team, including Studio Big Boss Bob made the right decision. Quality can drop if you rush things

    Exactly! ;)

    C.A. can better do this, then the game Warhammer 3 releases with lots of bug this year. :*

    Also, the 1st game Total War: Warhammer was in 2016 moved from April to May. :*

    Oh well, I still play wh2 an hour or two at least every day, so won’t be bored waiting.

    I do blame every single Kislev complainer for the delay. WH3 was good until people howled for less ice and changed things for Kislev, you have panicked them into redesign. (Just kidding, I think)

    They are really just adding more bears for me, thanks ca.
  • VeetasVeetas Registered Users Posts: 12
    Not surprised. With the rate that they have been releasing info, 1.5 and 2-3 month breaks where we have had pretty much radio silence, I don't think the game is anywhere near as ready as many will have thought, considering CA started selling it in February.
  • RikRiorikRikRiorik Registered Users Posts: 10,795
    Well it's been a charming day.

    The news didn't really surprise and I'm just happy that tomorrow brings something one might become excited about.

    I pre-ordered, doesn't bother me that the game is a bit later than originally scheduled.

    I have a massive backlog to play and many other things to keep me busy. Waiting for computer prices to drop for my new build anyway.
  • TotalBorehammerTotalBorehammer Registered Users Posts: 1,071
    I am ok with a delay, but by Sigmar if this game is not in a VERY highly polished state with minimal bugs then CA will feel this community's wrath.
    CA have a Facebook page... use the comments section of their posts and express your thoughts on ME poor quality/delays etc https://www.facebook.com/CreativeAssembly/ :)

    It is disappointing, but eh what can you do. Looking forward to it's release EARLY next year.
    But please fix WH2 last update stuffed it, balancing is way off, I know your doing something about cavalry, but how in hell with my Norsca campaign can 1 unit of Bretonian peasant Pox archers melee and beat a lvl 5 General, he gets 3-4 kills on charge and then they start kicking his arse, and plus the cav' retreat issue getting stuck in melee!
  • FerestorFerestor Registered Users Posts: 1,256
    The pro to all this is I have new free days next year! So release day and the day after is WH time.

    3K was solid at launch, it's the DLCs that screwed things up afterwards. Troy also released pretty darn pristine and has only gotten better with patches to the point that it barely has any load times anymore and runs buttery smooth in both battles and campaign.

    If WH3 releases like Troy there'll be no problems.
