Total War: WARHAMMER III originally had an expected release window for this year. However, in September, Chief Product Officer Rob Bartholomew announced they would delay the game until early 2022. The delay allowed the developers to refine the game to make for a more successful launch. Fortunately, fans of the series now have a concrete release date to look forward to.

Bartholomew addressed the update and expressed his excitement for both the release date, as well as the partnership with Xbox Game Pass.

It’s fantastic to finally put a release date on our epic third instalment. And, in partnering with Xbox Game Pass, we’re able to bring the ruinous powers of Chaos to as many players as possible. May all serve within their glorious embrace.
