A sequel for 2004’s Rome: Total War has been confirmed by Sega and Creative Assembly, expected sometime in 2013. The Total War series most recently re-occupied feudal Japan with 2010’s Total War: Shogun 2 and its 2012 expansion “Fall of the Samurai” (not to mention the iOS Total War Battles: Shogun spin-off this past April).
“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”. Explains Mike Simpson, Creative Assembly Director.
“In our 25th year of games development, it feels fitting to return to our most critically acclaimed era.” echoed Brand Director Rob Bartholemew, “There’s been a multi-generational leap in technology since the original game and we are ready to set another benchmark in gaming.”
