It looks like Creative Assembly is gearing up for another new Total War game, adding to their new Total War: Saga series to focus on a specific setting, rather than a historical era.

If the company's latest trademark application is anything to go by, Total War is heading to the battlefields of the Trojan War. The application is for the name "Total War Saga: Troy", but aside from that, nothing is known about the game. 

Creative Assembly's previous Total War Saga was Thrones of Britannia, which let players control key players in an era where Alfred the Great was uniting England to create a singular nation. Troy will likely offer players similar options, albeit in a Trojan War setting. 

The Total War Saga series is designed to offer players a tighter scope and limited room for technological progression. The games would offer a razor focus on specific events and build on top of the company's existing technology, enabling them to create a unique Total War game within a smaller timeframe and budget.    

While Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia had its issues, we hope that Total War Sagas: Troy will be able to push past them. At a minimum, we hope that Creative Assembly utilises a newer iteration of the Total War "Warscape" engine, as we feel that Thrones of Britannia was constrained by the 32-bit Total War: Attila engine which the game was based on. We want to see Total War Saga: Troy to use a proper 64-bit engine.

Our hope is that Total War Saga: Troy will be able to make use of the Total War: Three Kingdoms Engine, as this will enable Creative Assembly to put its best foot forward graphically. Doing otherwise will undoubtedly lead to performance issues, an issue which we detailed in our Total War: Thrones of Britania PC performance review

One other thing to note is that Total War: Three Kingdoms' hero system would be perfect for this era of Greek legend, where legendary heroes like Achillies and Ajax made a name for themselves. Ultimately, it depends on whether or not Creative Assembly wants to take a historical or fantastical look at this time period.

Agreed Mark I do hope CA decides to use the 3k engine version instead of Attila. 64 bit, FAR more optimized in regards to graphics and multi-threading(though still not great for 2019)Quote
