Yeah, or something close by.

CA is now officially partnered with Games Workshop about this... Makes me VERY excited, since this is something I've been waiting for for years!

SEGA and Creative Assembly Announce Partnership with Games Workshop to Create Warhammer Games

SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON – 11AM GMT, December 6, 2012 – SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today announced that Creative Assembly™, award-winning creator of the Total War™ series, and SEGA® Group have entered into a multi-title licensing deal with Games Workshop® to create videogames based in the Warhammer® universe of fantasy battles.
A new high-calibre development team has been set up at Creative Assembly’s UK studio to work alongside the existing Total War, Alien™ IP and Mobile teams on the first Warhammer title in the deal, scheduled to launch from beyond 2013.
“With this year being our 25th anniversary”, said Tim Heaton, Studio Director at Creative Assembly, “it seems fitting for us to embark on such a dream project with such a well-established partner. The incredibly rich and detailed Warhammer world is something we grew up with, and has left an indelible imprint on us as both designers and gamers.”
“We’ll be doing the Warhammer universe justice in a way that has never been attempted before. We’re bringing those 25 years of experience and expertise in extremely high-scoring games to bear, delivering a Warhammer experience that videogamers will absolutely love.”
“We have enormous respect for SEGA and Creative Assembly and have felt for a long time that the combination of the enormously rich setting of the Warhammer world, and their stunning development talent is a match with huge potential,” said Jon Gillard, Games Workshop’s Head of Licensing. “Now that we’ve managed to bring these two giants of gaming together it is safe to say that some truly amazing products are going to be unleashed as a result. We are excited at the possibilities, and are enthusiastically working with the team at Creative Assembly already.”
This first Warhammer game joins the eagerly-awaited Total War™: Rome II and the untitled Alien IP as one of five projects currently in production at Creative Assembly, now one of the largest developers in Europe.

Damn you, I was just about to post this!  mad icon_wink

It might not be a Total War game, but it most likely is (and it could be several different types of games too. It's a vast franchise). A lot of people have been dreaming about this combination, so this is a good thing.

There are so many places to go with Games workshop that I get dizzy just thinking about it. One of my favorite games from way back was actually Space Hulk,where you had 4 cameras to control 4 space marines, and even a Psyker as far as I remember - LOVED that game.

For some reason in my opinion, Games workshop have some of the most atmospheric licenses out there, in that every license oozes style and atmosphere.

And yeah, it could be anything - I just find it to be highly likely that its a Total War style game, due to who the developer is, but who knows.

Don't forget that Creative Assembly also has the team that does action games like Viking and Spartan.  Although those guys may be working on the Alien game.

And don't forget that Games Workshop is extremely restrictive with its license. I don't think there are many genres they would accept for the Warhammer property (40k or not). It's mostly strategy/tactics, but in certain rare cases it can be something else (such as the Space Marine game). The only reason Warcraft isn't Warhammer and Starcraft isn't Warhammer 40k is because Games Workshop were so difficult to work with.

Well, I've been wanting CA to make a fantasy warfare game for a long time now. And now, it gets better with the Warhammer license.

Of course, this comes with the knowledge that GW has run the tabletop version of this into the ground, literally everyone has stopped playing this.

And all other video game versions have failed. slywink
