We reported on a rumour a short while back that Creative Assembly were once again revisiting one of their more popular periods in history with Total War: Rome 2.
Overnight this rumour was confirmed, and in 2013 we will most definitely see a sequel to one of the team's most popular Total War entries, following on from the success of their equally popular revisit of Japan with Total War: Shogun 2.
"In our 25th year of games development, it feels fitting to return to our most critically acclaimed era,” said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director via press release. “There’s been a multi-generational leap in technology since the original game and we are ready to set another benchmark in gaming."
"Our games have always encompassed a grand vision,” Mike Simpson, the game's Creative Director added. “But we’re now pushing that vision at both ends of the spectrum. From the immense reach of the sandbox campaign right down to the human-level drama of a single warrior on the battlefield, we’re aiming for an unprecedented level of detail and scale.”
Currently Total War: Rome II is marked for release in 2013, with no other release specifics revealed. We do, however, have a new batch of art and screens you can check out via the thumbnails below, as well as more info on what to expect from the game through our Total War: Rome II game page. Stay tuned for more as it becomes available.
