"We know this is disappointing, but the extra time means we can accomplish more than we could if we rushed to release this year," the UK studio said in a statement.

"The wait won't be much longer, and we'll have plenty of new information in the meantime. The new date will make for a stronger release and the best first step into a new era for Total War: Warhammer.

"We don't consider this release the end of our trilogy, but the start of years of content and support as we continue to bring the jaw-dropping scale of Games Workshop's fantasy universe to Total War."

Creative Assembly said it will reveal Grand Cathay, one of the launch races in Total War Warhammer 3, tomorrow.
