Creative Assembly is one of the biggest players in the RTS genre – a genre that is exclusive to our platform of choice. You do have leave out some outliers like Halo Wars – of which its second installment was indeed developed by Creative Assembly itself – and Command & Conquer 3, but those are the exceptions that prove the rule: the PC is the place to strategize.
Now, Creative Assembly has announced yet another iteration on their Total War series of game, which borrow from Civilization’s “just one more turn” addictiveness. And this one is set on one of the most cherished IPs in gaming: the Warhammer universe. The first Total War: Warhammer was a poster child for DX 12 integration and performance improvements (at least on the AMD side of the equation). Total War: Warhammer II should also carry some of those optimizations with it, and the second installment in a planned trilogy of RTS titles on the receiving end of the Total War treatment.
