Total War Goes Mobile
Both SEGA of America Inc. and SEGA Europe Ltd. have announced that The Creative Assembly, up and comers in the developing games in Europe, are exploring new platforms in mobile gaming. The Total War team has been busy creating exciting new gaming experiences for handheld devices making the critically acclaimed Total War series available to more gamers.
“Total War Battles is a distinct new direction,” said Rob Bartholomew, Brand Director at The Creative Assembly. “For the last 12 months our Digital team has been extensively prototyping technology and making sense of exactly what a Total War game on mobile would look and feel like.”
Renaud Charpentier, Lead Designer on the Total War’s Digital team, said “This isn’t the traditional Total War you might expect. We are working on a title that is specifically tailored to the play styles and control methods of mobile platforms. We want to deliver a game that plays to the strengths of handheld RTS mechanics, and perfectly adapts to a host of different platforms. We’re developing in Unity to help us achieve stunning visuals, gameplay and audio on all our target devices.”
David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies said, “We are incredibly excited to have a great development house such as The Creative Assembly working on Unity. Author once, deploy anywhere is Unity’s mission statement and it’s fantastic to deliver that to such an acclaimed and loved brand.”
The Creative Assembly will announce specific launch platforms very soon. For information, stay tuned to www.creative-assembly.com
