We all know about Creative Assembly’s wonderful Total War: Warhammer strategy games. Now, Frontier Developments has quietly announced it’s making a Warhammer Age of Sigmar real-time strategy game.
Buried within the investor relations portion of its website is a note that the Cambridge-based maker of Elite: Dangerous, Planet Coaster, Planet Zoo and Jurassic World Evolution has signed an intellectual property licence with Games Workshop to develop and publish an RTS for PC, consoles and streaming platforms for release in the financial year 2023 (the year ending 31st May 2023). This game is based on the popular fantasy tabletop Warhammer, specifically the popular Age of Sigmar era.
The Age of Sigmar tabletop game first released in 2015, and is the successor to the discontinued game Warhammer. Frontier’s game will be the first RTS set in the Age of Sigmar. Creative Assembly’s Total War: Warhammer games are based on the “Old World”, which is now replaced by the Age of Sigmar.
