Gamasutra: Total War's Creative Assembly gets the Warhammer license

 

Creative Assembly and parent company Sega today announced a multi-title licensing deal with British tabletop wargames company Games Workshop, that will see the Total War studio create video games based on the Warhammer universe.

The UK studio has set up a new development team alongside its Total War, Alien and mobile groups, dedicated solely to the Warhammer series.

The plan is to begin launching titles in the Warhammer franchise "from beyond 2013," says the company.

Warhammer seems like a really decent IP that yields really mediocre results. No idea if this group will be any better than any of the others, but I suppose we'll see.

** edit **
Probably will be RTS games, not MMORPG.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Dawn of war was a decent RTS. Total War suits the armies approach more, should be considerablybetter than previous warhammer rts (not hard). I never really understood why GW never got their digital act together more instead of franchising IP's off...

Also: (Hero Quest is being developed by Rodeo on iOS, should be a good tbs ios game (bird-eye view) for interest.)

I guess the right company have not got their hands on the Warhammer IP.. If these guys make a Total War: Warhamemr game that would be awesome :)

 

There are some really good 40k games relic did an awesome job with the first Dawn of War game :)

Total War do not work on MMOs,  i think the warhammer IP is perfect for the total war system.

The total war series is one of the best "Armies, strategic and tactical" games i ever experienced, actually i always wanted something along a  total war game with a fantasy IP, and warhammer is the best for this.

I used to play HeroQuest with my step brother and sister. That was a fun game. Seems like it would be pretty easy to adapt to iOS or as a computer game in general.

That should be fun, my personal opinion here but I think Creative Assembly makes the best RTS's anyways so Warhammer should only turn out better, ive never regretted a total way purchase.

Well, maybe if you read the words, "General Gaming", and understood them, you might not have such a reaction to this thread.

Dawn of War was excellent, although I didn't care much for the sequel. Mark of Chaos was mediocre. Wait and see I guess.

Currently playing: Divinity: Original Sin, FTL, Hearthstone and Skyrim.
Eagerly anticipating: Camelot Unchained, Elite: Dangerous, Legend of Grimrock 2 and Star Citizen.

@the comments about the size of companies that worked on Warhammer titles:

Mythic wasn't(note the tense!) big enough(Ultima Online? DAoC?)? How about EA? Then there are Relic/THQ.

@comments about the quality of past Warhammer games:

Shadow of the Horned Rat? Dark Omen? Dawn of War? Dawn of War II? Chaos Gate? Those games weren't good? I know that human mind normally focuses on Bad things, but LoL! Talk about overreacting! Hell, even Mark was good. The thing is, Warhammer has got such a peculiar atmosphere/rules that is hard to recreate it.

@comments that DoW 1>DoW 2

Well Yeah. If you Like SWARMY races(IG/Orks/Nids/...). On the other hand if you Like anything Eldar/Space marine oriented, you REALLY should Like Tactics focus of DoW II over Strategy focus of DoW 1. Tastes differ after all(what I will agree with you, is the fact that mass races aren't swarmy enough in DoW 2-apart from that, is an awesome game-but then again l33t races such as Eldar/SM aren't shown l33t enough in DoW 1...).

@future of Warhammer on computers:

I can't for the Life of me understand why doesn't GW just set up their Video Games studio(they have Black Library for books, so...?). Anyhow, this bodes well. Really well. Freaking astonishing really! If only some big name RPG studio picked up WHF:RP(Warhammer Roleplay)-LoL that'd be the day! I'll say!

Me: :D :D :D

I didn't like purchasing Empire.... at first.  As time went on, they did things that made it better.  Yet from the original Shogun through Shogun II, Creative Assembly has had a pretty remarkable batting average (in the number of hits) and slugging percentage (the hits which turned into monsters.)  They were really matched only by Pre DA2 Bioware or perhaps Bethesda.

They could release a graphically updated Shadow of the Horned Rat and I'd be perfectly happy. I love that game. Still, I'm excited to see what direction they take things.

I really enjoy the 40k franchise, i am pleased with the move. I am now hopeful for a strategy and rpg game from the franchise. Hopefully a mmorpg one. Swg meets 40k. That would be fantastically awesomeness

Meanwhile, Sega has confirmed to PCGamesN that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War studio Relic Entertainment has retained the Warhammer 40,000 license.

 

 

I was excited until I read the above.  Love 40k universe, sort of indifferent to the fantasy universe.

So does this mean Relic won't be making any more 40K games? If so, then I'm very disappointed. That studio had a lot of love for the IP, and it really showed in the quality of their games. DoW2 was absolutely fantastic, far better than the overrated 40K ripoff known as Starcraft 2.

On the other hand, I'm really interested to see what Creative Assembly can do with the license. Perhaps a 4X style game with real-time combat? Oh, the possibilities...

Edit: Read the above post. Very happy now. Two great studios have the licenses to two of some of the greatest scifi / fantasy IPs ever made. Nothing but good can come of this. Hopefully.

Wow this is great news! Creative Assembly is absolutely perfect for Warhammer Fantasy game ala Total War style. I've always dreamed of this match up, and now its finally come true! I'm a very happy camper.

And for Relic retaining 40k, I think this is also freaken awesome news. Relic is one of my favorite RTS developers out there, and I think their style of smaller scaled tactical combat fits 40k better. But you never know they could always go massive as well for future iterations of the franchise. I'm hoping they announce a Dawn of War 3 or something.

This is just so perfect. Two of my favorite studios handling seperate fronts of the IP xD

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg
