Creative Assembly has announced plans for the new Total War games, called Total War Saga, which will be a series of titles focusing on small moments in history.
Total War Saga will still be turn-based campaigns and real-time battles, but the conflicts will last a few weeks or months. Game director Jack Lusted has said, “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.”
The full announcement blog post can be found on the Total War website.
