SEGA and Creative Assembly have delayed the launch of Total War: Warhammer by one month. The new date is locked in for a 24 May, 2016 worldwide release. "This could be the best Total War game we've ever made. We don't want to rush it," said Mike Simpson, Creative Director for Total War. "It's an enormous game and we also want to make absolutely sure reviewers have enough time to play it thoroughly before launch. Many thanks to the huge numbers of people who have pre-ordered and are eagerly awaiting release day. We're pulling out all the stops for you."

The minimum and recommended specs have also been finalised, revealing that Total War: Warhammer will be the first 64bit Total War title. Total War: Warhammer is an epic fantasy strategy game that combines an addictive turn-based campaign and empire-building with huge, tense real-time battles, all set in the striking and memorable world of Warhammer Fantasy Battle.
