It makes sense that the United Kingdom, based development studio would focus much of their attention to detail around European history, but they did branch out every once in a while with games like Total War: Shogun and Total War: Atilla.
The official description states, "China is in turmoil". Alongside the core historical-based games, the Total War series has expanded to include free-to-play mobile (Total War Battles™: KINGDOM) and PC titles (Total War™: ARENA), now in development. The studio just released a brand new announcement trailer to introduce fans to the world of Total War: Three Kingdoms, making good on their promise past year that more historical titles were in the works! He is but a figurehead; a mere puppet for the tyrant warlord Dong Zhuo. Eventually, three heroes will swear allegiance to one another and will rise up with the support of warlords from the great families of the country's ancient era, banding together to challenge his rule. The brutal and oppressive regime's power grows as the empire slips further into anarchy. But hope yet blossoms. "The future of China will be shaped by their hands, but personal ambition threatens their already crumbling alliance".
It seems long overdue that Creative Assembly and Sega would finally focus a mainline Total War game around the Wu, Shu and Wei factions following the dissolution of the Han Dynasty. More surprising still, the PC title is scheduled to release this September.
Total War: Three Kingdoms is slated to be coming out in the fall of this year, and got a trailer today soon after Creative Assembly began a countdown. The press release mentioned the launch of the game's Steam page, but it isn't available at the moment of this writing.
