Creative Assembly’s highly anticipated strategy title Total War: Three Kingdoms marks a significant step forward for Total War, creating a new level of depth for the franchise’s dedicated players. However, that kind of thing takes time to perfect. And unfortunately, perfection can cause delays. Today, the studio announced that players will have to wait a bit longer as the release date has been delayed to May 23, 2019.
“We’re lucky to be in a position to do the right thing for our games, and in this case, it means taking the time to get everything ready for you,” said Rob Bartholomew, Studio Brand Director at Creative Assembly. “It’s important that we give you a game that you can enjoy to the fullest, and we’re excited for you to see what we have in store.”
While the delay is a disappointment, we’d rather a fully functional game a few months later than something broken on release. After all, we wouldn’t want a Total War version of Fallout 76. And given what we’ve seen of Three Kingdoms so far, the wait will be well worth it.
