Total War: Warhammer pushed to May 24, 2016

These are the latest system specs

Creative Assembly has delayed the launch of Total War: Warhammer from April 28, 2016 to May 24, 2016 in order to not “rush it,” according to creative director Mike Simpson. Always a good thing.

“This could be the best Total War game we’ve ever made,” he said. “It’s an enormous game and we also want to make absolutely sure reviewers have enough time to play it thoroughly before launch.”

The studio has also honed in on the system requirements for Warhammer, including a breakdown of what sort of in-game performance players can expect to achieve with their setup.

Looks like I’ll fall somewhere in the lower-middle side of things. Keep in mind, these listings are more of a “guide rather than an absolute” and they’re subject to change closer to release.
