Total War: Warhammer revealed in series art book

Creative Assembly's next endeavor – a real-time strategy game based on the Warhammer franchise – has been accidentally revealed, Eurogamer reports.

Confirmation for Total War: Warhammer comes from The Art of Total War book, wherein Creative Assembly's Mike Simpson is quoted as saying: "...and taking the series to a fantasy setting with Total War: Warhammer." The mention was spotted by an eagle-eyed user.

Creative Assembly's foray into the world of Warhammer is of no surprise, as the company completed a licensing agreement with intellectual property owner Games Workshop in December 2012. Since the agreement was solidified, Creative Assembly has continued its Total War series, as well as taking some time to expand into the world of Ridley Scott's Alien, much to the enjoyment of the Joystiq staff.

Joystiq has contacted Sega for comment on the reveal, but no response was offered at the time of publishing.
