Grand Cathay Details and Unit Reveal Happening Tomorrow
Total War: Warhammer III will now release in early 2022, rather than by the end of 2021. In addition, Creative Assembly has announced a big reveal trailer for the much-anticipated faction Grand Cathay will release tomorrow at 3 PM BST.
Total War: WARHAMMER III will now release in early 2022.
We know this is disappointing, but the extra time means we can accomplish more than we could if we rushed to release this year.

Total War: Warhammer III will conclude the Total War Warhammer trilogy, Creative Assembly’s first foray into a non-historical fantasy setting. Although the release date is not known, today’s announcement also states that “The wait won’t be much longer,” so at most a few months delay from the original release date of sometime this year can be expected. The recent news does not come as much of a surprise, given the lack of promotional trailers and content.
The bad news was then somewhat alleviated with Creative Assembly’s second announcement – that a trailer of Grand Cathay would be released tomorrow. Ever since Cathay’s tease in the original Total War: Warhammer III cinematic announcement trailer, there has been a lot of anticipation and hype around the Chinese-themed race.
In addition to the short message “We won’t be staying quiet however, join us tomorrow for the global reveal of Grand Cathay” on Twitter, Creative Assembly has released a few more details on Discord. First, the reveal will be in the form of an in-engine cinematic trailer, like the Warhammer 2 race announcements. As expected, the trailer will reveal “a lot of units from Grand Cathay,” as well as a cryptic “something else” and “much more.” Finally, a Grand Cathay FAQ will release alongside the trailer.
