SEGA and Creative Assembly have revealed today with a press release that Total War: Warhammer has been delayed to May 24 from its original April 28 launch date.

However, according to Creative Director Mark Simpson, this may just be the best Total War ever made by the British studio.

This could be the best Total War game we’ve ever made. We don’t want to rush it. It’s an enormous game and we also want to make absolutely sure reviewers have enough time to play it thoroughly before launch.

Many thanks to the huge number of people who have pre-ordered and are eagerly awaiting release day. We’re pulling out all the stops for you.

The system requirements for Total War: Warhammer, the first 64bit only game in the series, have also been confirmed today.
