    Default Update on TW teams - Mid 2017

    https://www.totalwar.com/blog/what-t...g-on-07-06-17/

    More news regarding the TW teams working on all of the titles.

    Three interesting tidbits:


    • more content for Attila! DLC
    • historical team working on it
    • expansion pack DLC to be released probably this year


    More historical content to be released, and while I speculate it's Attila, it can be something else too. Rome 2?

    Some more info, straight from the post:

    HISTORICAL TEAM

    Development on the next major historical release continues apace, with the team focusing on some fantastic UI and environmental work recently to capture the mood of this unique setting, that we’ve yet to explore in any previous Total War game

    Other areas that are progressing nicely are the important character relations that occur between the major personalities in the game. Now the designers can start modelling the various interactions and gameplay impacts the proposed features will have. Elsewhere, the campaign map is starting to come together in some new and visually exciting ways. Obviously, it will help set the tone and immersion for the whole game, and the artists have done an incredible job in realising the style we’re going for.


    HISTORICAL FLASHPOINT TEAM


    We’re pleased to say that our plans for a new stand-alone title have come to fruition, and this team are now in full production on an exciting new release. We are planning to set this in an era we have already visited, but will cover a particular period we are very fond of and haven’t done enough justice to yet.


    We’ve been thinking a lot about how our major releases cover eras, our character-based follow-ups span the events of iconic lives (like Napoleon, or Attila), but that we are also interested in flashpoint moments. Those shorter, intense periods where events could have unfolded in any direction, dramatically changing the course of history in only a handful of months or years.


    ‘Fall of the Samurai’ being based on the Boshin War is a great example of this, and we are planning this new title to be similar in intent. It will also arrive before the next major historical title that the team above are working on.

    Handful of months? I'm interested to see how that short of a time period changes the TW game dynamics. And what time period it might be.

    Hmm, or maybe Alexander the Great.
    I think Vikings covers a longer period & the quote specifically mentions short time periods.

    Generall guys don't take the historical teams too seriously. CA has used it as a PR trick, so its reliability is doubtful to say the least.

    Looking forward to new content for (I'm hoping) Rome 2. Though it could also be for Attila. Probably not Shogun 2 with that concept art. :-)

    The standalone "Flashpoint" game also sounds interesting.

    I'd also love to see this. Viking Invasion is still one of my favourite Total War campaigns.

    And it's nice to have some Historical news that isn't just "the next Major Historical Total War is quite a way off."

    All the Best,

    Welsh Dragon.

    It's a Rome 2 era type art, which suggests more Rome DLC.

    Does he look perhaps Germanic rather than Gallic?
    Some kind of campaign around Teutoburg Forest?

    Teutoburg Forest memorial has Arminius (?) with a winged helmet

    I'm hoping for some more Attila content but unit-based, some factions need more units
