Age of Sigmar has been delayed

Those of you who’ve been paying attention to gaming news throughout 2020 may remember hearing about developer Frontier’s real-time strategy game Warhammer: Age of Sigmar. This new game has quite a bit of mystery surrounding it, as it has yet to receive an official announcement from Frontier. The developer surreptitiously revealed the game in a note sent to its investors, but it hasn’t revealed anything specific about the upcoming RTS since then. Luckily, Frontier has just shared more news surrounding the game, which may interest some readers. Unfortunately, the news only confirmed that Warhammer: Age of Sigmar will see a delay until 2023.

News of the delay arrives silently similar to the game’s reveal, as Frontier only mentions it in one transaction update published yesterday. According to the update, Frontier originally planned for the game to launch in early 2023, but chose to delay it to “the end of that calendar year, which falls in FY24”. The developer made this decision to “further improve the quality and longevity of the game, and make the game more successful”. As one would expect, Frontier doesn’t say much about the game, so curious players will have to wait for an unknown amount of time until the developer reveals something.

A long street

In the end, it seemed very difficult to feel any kind of strong emotion towards the delay of Warhammer: Age of Sigmar because we don’t even know what it looks like. We could see an official announcement sometime in 2023 or even later this year, but that’s assuming the game won’t be quietly delayed a second time.

Fortunately for Warhammer fans, developers Creative Assembly will give Total War: Warhammer III the next month. So you won’t exactly feel hungry Warhammer the content of then. And consider how big a release is Warhammer III would be, maybe it would make sense if Frontier announced and released Age of Sigmar once the hype for the old game died down.
