Hey mofos, welcome to a source for all your Warhammer gaming news, rumors, and my favorite… speculation.
I previously did a video and article about the longly anticipated release of Blood Bowl 3. BB3 is a game by Cyanide Studio which splices American Football with the Warhammer Universe. There is a tabletop version as well that you may be familiar with. Blood Bowl III is the new video game of that.
Today’s topic is about 2 other Warhammer video games. Those are:
Warhammer: Vermintide 3
Total War: Warhammer 3
We will discuss what we know about the games release and rumors. We will also speculate where needed.
Warhammer Vermintide III
Is probably not coming any time soon.
The fact is that Warhammer: Vermintide II (WV2) is still very profitable, and somewhat popular. As I said in the video, it makes for great reading; however, talking about something does not make it real. Except for with ghosts.
Console users only just recently got ahold of the majority of content available for WV2. The majority of that majority comes in the form of paid DLC’s. Therefore one can speculate how much money is still available for Fatshark to make.
Conclusion & Verdict
WV3 is not coming anytime soon. If I had to guess, I would say we are at least 1 year out from hearing about a release for 1 year later. Mark your calendars for Q2 / Q3 2023.
I wanted to dispel that one asap so we can move onto the game that will actually release in the near future. Near being a relative term. You see me browse steam in the video.
Total War: Warhammer III
Total War: Warhammer 3 (TWWH3) is a game that will likely release in 2021. You can clearly see that steam has the game release info set at Late 2021. That is not exactly a guarantee, but the game is available for pre-purchase right this second for $59.99. That gives us a glimmer of hope that the devs are somewhat sure it will be available this year. That is not a guarantee either, but it is certainly some reassurance.
TWWH3 looks a lot like TWWH2. Blood Bowl 3 looks a lot like Blood Bowl 2. The fact of the matter is that the Warhammer Fantasy Universe; especially the video game department, is not that popular in the US. So it is very likely they are simply shining up the previous versions of the game to make some quick money.
Conclusion & Verdict
This game will come out and will receive very little support.
Hopefully that is where content creators and audiences come in. We need to push the popularity of these games so we can get better and better products out there.
There is a ton to do in the Warhammer Fantasy Universe. There are tabletop games and video games available for a wide range of gamers.
I do hope both of the games we discussed in this article are as great as they can be. I will lay the brakes off of them regardless. Join me:
