Past games in the series have been set in eras such as feudal Japan, the Roman republic, and medieval Europe, as well as the Napoleonic Wars and the American Revolutionary War.

According to the report, the unannounced game is in pre-production right now.

Creative Assembly is working on multiple projects currently. There are two sequels to Total War: Warhmmer in the works, while the UK-based studio is also developing Halo Wars 2. According to Eurogamer's report, Creative Assembly has at least five separate internal development teams.
