Last year saw the release of the first Total War Saga game with A Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia
, which took a more focused look at specific time and place in history. With that title set during the period when Anglo-Saxons, Gaelic clans, Welsh tribes and Viking settlers were all going at it. A more historical effort that brought the series back to its roots from the Warhammer entries at the time.
And even the upcoming Total War: Three Kingdoms, which looks to romanticise Chinese history in a way that certain films have. With the first Total War Saga developed by Creative Assembly team in Sofia, a new update from the studio drops word that in addition to helping across all current CA titles in development the team at Sofia is hard at work on the next entry. With the update
noting, "This week we passed milestone one on this game and we’re starting to see more and more of what it will look like. We’re becoming incredibly excited to be able to share more about this project with you in the coming year – stay tuned!"
In keeping with the series it's expected that the next Saga will focus on a different and specific point in history to dive deep into a specific conflict. As with the first Total War Saga, it should also take full advantage of the advances made to the engine and underlying mechanics that we expect to see in Three Kingdoms.
