Total War: Three Kingdoms Delayed to May 23rd

Delays and pushed release dates are some of the saddest news a gamer could hear, and sadly, Total War: Three Kingdoms isn’t coming out on its planned release date.

Creative Assembly and SEGA announced today via press release the delay of the 12th main entry in the Total War franchise, Total War: Three Kingdoms. Last year, we received Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia, which was met with mostly favourable reviews, and slight criticism on its relatively dull campaign, and lack of more varied factions. Creative Assembly’s Studio Brand Director Rob Bartholomew apologised to the fans, and explained the delay was mainly because they want to make sure everything is ready and players can enjoy it “to the fullest.”

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. 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.

Total War: Three Kingdoms now officially releases on May 23rd, instead of its intended March 7th release date. The game releases exclusively on PC.
