Total War: Three Kingdoms gamers worldwide will be disappointed to hear one of their favorite games has now been delayed a bit longer than anticipated. Developer Creative Assembly recently announced the title Total War: Three Kingdoms will now arrive on May 23 of this year, which is 3 months later than what they had originally scheduled. The release date was initially on March 7 of this year.
Some background on Total War: Three Kingdoms: the game is set in second or third-world China after the dissolution of the Han Dynasty. The story is highly influenced by the the idea of heroes possessing super human strength in combat and tactical powers. Game director Janos Gaspar stated “characters are very much the cornerstone of the game: their interactions, friendships, rivalries and personalities drive the campaign game like never before.”
When questioned about why the date was pushed back, Creative Assembly brand director Rob Bartholomew made a statement explaining why. Rob knows every little detail counts so he wants to deliver top notch craftsmanship for his gaming audience. He rather put out the best of the game rather than give the bare minimum. Understanding not everyone is going to be happy about the decision, Bartholomew still believes his gaming fans will be much happier when they see the finished product, even if it’s going to take a few more months to complete.
Bartholomew also mentioned he needed a bit more time to ensure the “revolutionary” features and systems were ready. Additionally, to ensure that any bugs, kinks, added polish and localization, are done correctly. The push back should not affect pre-orders, but if any problem arise Creative Assembly wants the fans to reach out to retailers or to publisher Sega’s support staff to help solve the problem.
If fans of the game just can’t wait for the game to be released, the next live gameplay stream will start on Wednesday February 13 with another one available the following week. For more information on Total War: Three Kingdoms got to mxdwn for more details.
