Total War: Three Kingdoms has been delayed by a couple of months, Creative Assembly and Sega have announced.
The game was originally slated for release on March 7, but will now turn up on May 23. According to Creative Assembly's studio brand director, Rob Bartholomew, Total War simply needed a bit more spit and polish before release. Fair enough!
'With Three Kingdoms, we set out to create a new level of complexity. As such, we need a little more time to make sure these systems deliver as intended and give you the Total War experience you've waited so patiently for,' said Bartholomew.
'Of course, the extra time won't hurt when it comes to fixing those bugs that have been hard to nail down, getting the localisation just right, and adding additional polish to help it shine. We all know those little details make a big difference.'
'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 more important to give you a game that you can enjoy to the fullest, rather than stick to a release date just because.'
'We know not everyone's going to be happy about this, but ultimately, we believe this the best thing for the game and our players.'
