Creative Assembly har annonceret, at de vil udgive en ny serie af klassiske historie Total War-spil. Disse nye sagaer vil fokusere på vigtige begivenheder i forskellige krige, hvorfor den første under luppen er magen til Fall of the Samurai. Det første vil også være i samme stil som Rome og Attila, så fans skal bestemt holde ekstra øje. Studiet havde følgende udtalelser i forbindelse mødet:
"With our big releases that cover entire eras, like Rome or Empire, we've been following them up with standalone games that focus on a single character's life and the time around them; like Napoleon or Attila," he said. "But there are also these key, pivotal points in history which don't necessarily revolve around a single character, and only lasted a few months or few decades at most. Such moments also tend to be constrained to a tight geographic area as well."
"These moments are perfect fuel for Total War. They're a powder keg, where anything can happen and history could have gone in any direction. Sagas are epic stories, and we felt that name described those moments well, and allows us to go into the kind of individual detail we love."
"So, Total War Saga games will be the same mix of turn-based campaign strategy, real-time battle tactics and hundreds if not thousands of hours of gameplay as a regular Total War game, but focussed down on a distinct moment.Sagas won't be revolutionary new titles or introduce brand-new eras; they'll follow-on from previous Total War games and inhabit the same time-period, or at the very least relate to it. But these are certainly Total War games."
De nævnte også, at dette er en anden ting, som skal stå serperat fra et andet Total War spil, som de har et støbeskeen, der skulle være udviklet af et stort hold og en spirtuel opfølger til Total War: Rome II.
Dette betyder ikke sagaerne vil være korte da
"To help show the kind of scale we're talking about, the game that I'm currently working on has a map that is comparable in gameplay size to Total War: Attila, but focused on a smaller geographic area, and the campaign will take as long to complete as any other Total War title does. Focusing on a single geographic location in this way allows us to go into greater detail with the period and setting,"
