‘Total War: Star Wars’ Game Rumoured From Developer Creative Assembly

The Total War series will reportedly head to a galaxy far, far away, as word of a Total War: Star Wars game is making its rounds. Citing a reliable source, DualShockers reports that one of the three in-development entries is expected to be themed after Star Wars, though no other details were given.

If true, it will join Creative Assembly’s Warhammer trilogy of titles in embracing the fantasy route. The latest title, Total War: Pharaoh, is set in the New Kingdom of Egypt and its surrounding areas before the Late Bronze Age collapse, keeping in line with the franchise’s history-focused roots.

It won’t be the the Star Wars universe’s first foray into the real-time strategy (RTS) genre, either. Empire at War, released in 2006, and 2000’s Force Commander both explored its strategy potential, but it’s been a long while since then. Details of the other two Total War games are also being kept under wraps, with fans placing their bets on another historical adventure or a Warhammer 40,000 project.

For a studio that has endured much tumult in recent times, including mass layoffs, this does seem a lot to handle. However, the Sega-owned studio previously confirmed to IGN that it will continue to “have multiple projects in Total War and a new unannounced project,” likely to release in the next couple of years.

For now, the team is currently hard at work on a new Total War: Pharaoh update. Apart from a bigger campaign map size and “even more cultures and ways of engaging in glorious strategic conquest,” players can look forward to “some familiar content from its Bronze-Age brother, A Total War Saga: TROY” in a free separate expansion dropping later this year.
