Unfortunately, we have some sour news for you if you’re a complete War fan looking forward to a subsequent Warhammer-themed installment within the series. The team at Creative Assembly today announced that Total War: Warhammer 3 has been delayed from its original release window of 2021; now, the sport won’t be launching until sometime next year.
The news was announced on the entire War Twitter account today, and albeit Creative Assembly doesn’t provide a specific reason for the delay, it seems that it had been made; therefore, the team doesn’t need to rush to urge Total War: Warhammer 3 out before the top of the year.
Total War: WARHAMMER III will now release in early 2022.
We know this is disappointing, but the extra time means we can accomplish more than we could if we rushed to release this year.
We won’t be staying quiet however, join us tomorrow for the global reveal of Grand Cathay… pic.twitter.com/R4GdObAs9P

“With nearly a decade of development on the entire War: Warhammer trilogy behind us, it feels surreal to ascertain its culminating chapter so on the brink of release,” Creative Assembly chief product officer Rob Bartholomew said during a statement today. “While it’s tempting to rush to the finishing line because it comes into view, we’ve made the choice to offer it a touch longer by moving the launch of Total War: Warhammer 3 from 2021 to early 2022.”
While we didn’t get a selected release date out of Creative Assembly today, the “early 2022” release window for Total War: Warhammer 3 likely means it’ll launch within the half-moon of the year. We’ll get to serve Creative Assembly to truly confirm that before we will say with certainty that a Q1 is that the target, but hopefully, that’s where Total War: Warhammer 3 ultimately finishes up.
If you’ve been looking forward to the sport, Creative Assembly does say that it’ll have “plenty of latest information” to share with us in the meantime. Those info drops begin tomorrow, as Bartholomew says in his statement today that we’ll see the reveal of Grand Cathay tomorrow. Additionally, we’ll allow you to know when a selected release date is revealed for Total War: Warhammer 3, so stay tuned for more.
