Total War: Warhammer III (TWW3, WH3) is the planned third and final game in the Total War: Warhammer series, confirmed by Creative Assembly to be in development.

It will be the sequel to Total War: Warhammer and Total War: Warhammer II.

As of January 2021, the game has not yet been released, and no release date has been announced.

Development progress[edit | edit source]

In June 2018, a blog post by Creative Assembly indicated that WH3 was in pre-production.[1]

In March 2019, another blog post indicated that motion-capture was being done for the game.[2]

In September 2019, it was stated in another blog that the game is "deep into production".[3]

In July 2020, another blog said the following:

One event the current world situation [the global Covid-19 pandemic] has certainly put the crimpers on is us announcing our next major Total War title. As you can imagine it’s all a bit chaotic here at CA, so please bear with us.

Known features[edit | edit source]

  • The game will be playable as a stand-alone title and feature its own self-contained main campaign.
  • Those who own TWW1 , TWW2 and TWW3 will be able to play a combined mega campaign currently called "A Very Big Campaign".
  • CA has confirmed that they wish to implement all the main races of Warhammer Fantasy as playable factions by the end of the trilogy. This means that if the Chaos Daemons, Chaos Dwarfs and Ogre Kingdoms do not appear as playable factions in TWW2 , then they will appear in the third game.
  • According to a Russian leak before the release of TWW1 , the third game would feature four factions: Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh and Tzeentch. This same leak listed Chaos Dwarfs and Ogre Kingdoms as DLC factions for TWW3, along with Tomb Kings and Skaven as DLC for TWW2. CA has since confirmed this leak but stated it is very outdated, Skaven appeared as a base race of TWW2 but Tomb Kings did appear as a DLC .
  • During the announcement of pre-production July 2018 CA stated that the expansion would be "Total Chaos ", this is expected to mean a heavy story focus on Chaos . This could possibly mean the Russian Leak correctly guessed that TWW3 would feature four independent chaos factions (featured in a 'great game' style campaign ) or simply the games stand-alone campaign will be primarily focussed on the Chaos invasion .
  • The game will likely be released in 2021. Since 2015, CA has made yearly major Total War releases. CA has confirmed that Total War Warhammer III is their next major Total War release, thus placing it's release in 2021. Although, no release date or release year has been formally announced.
