Total War: Warhammer Hit by One-Month Delay

Total War: Warhammer remains one of the most promising PC games of 2016. Although it has appeared to be on-track for success, SEGA has decided to push the game's launch date back.

Total War: Warhammer's launch date has been moved from April 28th to May 24th, providing Creative Assembly one more month to prepare for launch. The game's release is now firmly situated between the debut of Uncharted 4: Among Thieves and No Man's Sky.

This news comes just days after Uncharted 4: A Thief's End's two week delay, a move that has become increasingly common in the industry as AAA game development has become more complex and challenging.

The good news is that system requirements for the game have been released. They are as follows:
