THE BUZZ: Creative Assembly has apparently been in talks with Minecraft creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson about a possible appearance in the next Total War game.

“Been talking to @notch today about him hopefully coming over for mocap for the next @totalwar game. Would be sweet,” tweeted Creative Assembly’s Craig Laycock.

No official announcement has actually been made regarding a new Total War game at this time.

EGM’s TAKE: First, the news of a new Total War game is pretty big, and secondly what role will Notch fill? If he’s being mocapped the chances are that he will be included as one of the leaders. It will be interesting to see if this one goes any further. Also some details on this new game would be nice.
