Directly from the site totalwar.com, in the blog section, was announced the arrival of a new spin-off series for the famous strategic saga Total War, which will be named "Total War Saga".

The first title will be available to us players before the next big release of the franchise.

Like the other spin-offs in the series, i Total War Saga will not be a revolutionary title in terms of gameplay, but will be a kind of "deepening" of the period covered in the previous chapters.

So you expect the Usually strategy mix, battle tactics and hundreds, or thousands of hours of gameplay, all centered on a certain precise historical moment, which programmers have identified as possible "sliding doors", ie moments where the conflicts and tensions were so balanced that even the smallest difference could have brought a rebound in history as we know it today (and it is the intention of the development team to allow us to explore these possible divergences).

It is not the first time Creative Assembly proposes a title of this kind, just think of Total War: Shogun 2 - Fall of the Samurai, which already allowed players to explore with their actions the different and possible future of the Boshin war.

The first title of the series Total War Saga will ideally be a successor to Rome II, presenting an exciting new challenge in a particular geographic area, unlike previous standalone ones that focused on the story and life of a single character (as in Napoleon or Attila).

Jack Lusted, director of this project, assures us of the titles Total War Saga they will not be small fillers, but they will be real deserved games of the "big" chapters, with maps and longevity similar, if not even superior.

At the moment there is no precise indication of any release date (apart from that given at the beginning of the article), but following the social platforms of Total War and Creative Assembly, we will always be updated with last-minute news on that.
