    Point form summary for those on a phone?

    Man debates himself in puppet form over whether or not this is a good thing or a bad thing with some relevant points both ways. I hadn't heard about the GW rumors before.

    If CA couldn't steal Old Worlds thunder I'm going to say I hope GW has prepared their own model previews tomorrow for Grand Cathay.

    Also Dogbert doesn't work at CA anymore?

    Also, also I quite enjoyed that video.

    Lot of it is based on a vague rumour and it's also all about framing.

    I don't see GW delivering the Old World before the end of next year, anyway.

    Just that GW has a hand in pushing back the release to line up with something. Maybe Old World.

    I don't think it's true. It was still a surprisingly well rounded video on the delay

    GW pushing back TWW3s release so that CA don’t steal the thunder of the Old World’s release.

    Oh thanks for the precision !

    Yeah, I find that unlikely, I doubt GW would release Old World in less than 6 monthes !

    Yeah no that's not happening. GW said in July thag old world is quite a while away forn release so it's not early 2022. It's more likely 2023

    The parallel release of a $60 video game and a new war game doesn't make any sense. You want your average customer to be able to afford your products so they don't avoid them...a Q4 2021 release for CA would have been the most profitable time to release a video game/ / Warhammer product, and then the same fans would be able to justify buying more Warhammer products in Q1-Q2...

    Some of his sentiment on upper management is fair, but I think it's more so that CA hasn't been fully working on Warhammer 3 for all that long. The lack of content and smooth animations convey that well. The Kislev/Khorne content we saw felt very near complete, or like a WIP.

    Oh look a video I'm not watching.

    The Old World isn't for years and GW's pretty delayed itself. They need to sort out their production.

    Well there you go, huh. I'm sure you can see what I'm saying though...Warhammer 3 hasn't been worked on, at least in a full capacity, for 4 years.

    Cody Bonds made a genuinely entertaining video about himself debating with a puppet over something I already thought was going to happen and have no strong feelings over. That takes talent
  • NemoTheElf101NemoTheElf101 Registered Users Posts: 2,216
    The best part of this take is how it really emphasizes the fact that regular CA employees are not responsible for the delay and shouldn't face hate or heat for it.

    No matter how you feel about it, it's not worth grilling those employees that take the spotlight for whatever reason. Management and marketing aren't the people who interact with the forums. Employees who show up either here or on Reddit really don't need your anger.

    I don't believe the GW story, I was under the impression TOW wasn't going to be revealed properly for years from now.

    More likely TWW3 got delayed because it's team got reduced to a skeleton crew at various times to help with other projects, with a dash of pandemic added. It's the most reasonable explanation.

    It could be GW doesn't want TW3 out until something they intend to preview for Old World gets done by them first. It doesn't have to mean they want the whole new game out first. Just some concept models or art or something.

    I don't really believe GW's story either. Otherwise you would have to stall the preview from Cathay and the delay would not have occurred in the first place. GW knew roughly when they wanted to publish their stuff and they will only deal with the Warhammer 3 material to a limited extent. First they have to deal with the normal locations: empire, high elves ...

    GW is still releasing AoS content so it'll be awhile before old world is taking over.
