Sorry, Total War fans, but 2021 just isn’t going to be your year. In a message sent out to Twitter, Total War: Warhammer III has been delayed until early 2022. It’s a shame, considering publisher Sega has been pumping out fresh info on the game for months now. In fact, developer Creative Assembly was set for a showcase this month with even more reveals. That’s still happening with a look at Grand Cathay tomorrow. However, we doubt the delay is what most people were expecting for September.
Regardless, Total War: Warhammer III has been delayed, missing the holiday rush. It’s “disappointing,” reads the Twitter message, “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.”
“The wait won’t be much longer, and we’ll have plenty of new information for you in the meantime,” the message to the Warhammer community reads. “The new date will make for a stronger release and the best first step into a new era for Total War: Warhammer. We don’t consider this release the end of our trilogy, but the start of years of content and support as we continue to bring the jaw-dropping scale of Games Workshop’s fantasy universe to Total War.”
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.

Hammer it down
So far, Sega and Creative Assembly have been firing away in the game’s promotion. Back in June, we got our first glimpse at the full rosters for both Kislev and Khorne. The former of which included a giant ice bear, while the latter dove into the opposite direction with fiery, demon-looking hordes. As mentioned above, tomorrow we’ll get a look at Grand Cathay, a human city in the Far East.
Total War: Warhammer III will be out on PC early 2022.
