The long-running strategy developer is looking to branch out.

A third-person action game is on the way from Creative Assembly, the developer renowned for its Total War strategy games including Shogun: Total War and the more recent Total War Saga: Troy.

Creative Assembly also develops the Games Workshop series Total War: Warhammer – with the most recent Warhammer III arriving earlier this year – but it's not averse to non-strategy games either.

The new project is said to “sit alongside Total War, Hyenas and the studio’s other yet-to-be announced project”, and in an official announcement, the studio said it’s looking for developers “with experience working on third-person titles using the Unreal 5 engine”.

Creative Assembly may be best known for its strategy offerings, but it’s also dabbled with action-adventure before – notably with the survival horror game, Alien: Isolation. But will the new game be based on an existing franchise?

Unfortunately, details are pretty scarce. Aside from revealing the existence of this new action game, and teasing its third-person nature, there are no other details about what the game might entail.

If you’re a fan of the Total War series, don’t worry – Creative Assembly may be branching out, but they’ll remain dedicated to the long-running strategy series, too. “CA Sofia will also continue to remain home to a dedicated Total War team working on future releases,” the studio confirmed.

Creative Assembly’s most recent game, Total War: Warhammer III was well-received by gamers and critics, scoring a hefty 9/10 in IGN’s own review. “Total War: Warhammer 3’s single-player mode presents us with a tense, challenging, multilayered campaign driven along by a compelling story and a memorable cast of rivals,” we said.
