RUMOR: Creative Assembly Set To Reveal Total War: Rome 2

Posted on June 26, 2012 AT 10:20am

Fans of Creative Assembly’s Total War series have been clamoring for the franchise to return to the Roman Empire for a few years—and according to the latest rumor mill, that’s exactly what’s happening.

According to a scanned image from an upcoming issue of PC PowerPlay, the next title in the series will return to the time of the Roman Empire, and going by the naming convention, it’ll probably be titled Total War: Rome 2 or something along those lines. NeoGAF member crimsonheadGCN posted a picture of a teaser image from the magazine, linking the timing of the reveal to the upcoming “Rezzed” convention this July.

For their part, RockPaperShotgun notes that the developers will be making a special announcement during their 25-year anniversary celebration:

The studio has been around for 25 years this year, and to celebrate they’ll be offering a presentation called “25 Years Of The Creative Assembly”, part of which will involve an exclusive first look at their plans for the future of the series. OoooOOOOoooo. Says lead designer James Russell,

“I’ll be at Rezzed giving a talk on the making of the Total War series, and showing a sneak peek of what we’re doing next. Exciting times – see you there!”

See – he said the same thing I did. Now you know it’s FACT. That presentation will be at 1pm on 6th July.

It sounds more than credible. After all, as crimsonheadGCN points out, PC PowerPlay also broke the news about Dark Souls on PC, which followed the original PS3 and Xbox 360 release dates by roughly a whole year.
