Total War: Warhammer III delayed to early 2022

No longer due out in late 2021.

Total War: Warhammer III

Publisher Sega and developer Creative Assembly delayed Total War: Warhammer III from its previously planned late 2021 release window to early 2022. It will be available for PC via Steam and Epic Games Store.

Get the full message from chief product officer Rob Bartholomew on the delay below.

With nearly a decade of development on the Total War: Warhammer trilogy behind us, it feels surreal to see its culminating chapter so close to release. While it’s tempting to rush to the finish line as it comes into view, we have made the decision to give it a little more time by moving the launch of Total War: Warhammer III from 2021 to early 2022.

The wait won’t be much longer, and we’ll have plenty of new information for you in the meantime. The new date will make for a stronger release and the best first step into a new era for Total War: Warhammer. We don’t consider this release the end of our trilogy, but the start of years of content and support as we continue to bring the jaw-dropping scale of Games Workshop’s fantasy universe to Total War.

Thanks for your patience and support.

Chief Product Officer
