Total War™: ROME II

Rome 2 release date set for ‘late 2013’

Total War: Rome 2 is out now; here's our Total War: Rome 2 review.

It’s going to be hard to wait for Rome 2: it’s looking very, very special indeed. But settle in; there’s a long road ahead of us. Speaking at the Develop conference in Brighton, UK yesterday, Creative Assembly designer James Russell explained that the game is a long way off, and CA have a lot of work ahead of them.

Before showing footage from the game, he asked the audience to bear in mind how early the game is in development. “Please bear in mind this is pre, pre-alpha footage. The game’s due out late 2013, so there’s a lot of work to be done.”

The footage on display in Brighton was a small section from the Carthage demo already seen by the press and select visitors to Rezzed: an amphibious assault that ends with Roman legionaries scaling the walls of the city. It looked brilliant.
