Will we see a Total War game on consoles? Creative Assembly bares all…

December 8, 2010

The aussie studio who is prepping their major PC title was asked about a possible Total War games on consoles, Viking: Battle for Asgard and Stormrise were one of the first console releases, but CA kept the PC fanbase close, so did they have to say about putting their major PC title on consoles:

“At some point. Maybe. I don’t know,” said McDowell. “Somebody give Sega a bucket load of money to pay for it and we’d be alright,” he laughed.

“We have actually solved the problem with controlling Total War games using a control pad anyway.

“In the past one of the artists actually coded up some experimental stuff just on his own time and was like, ‘Oh that actually works really well,'” he revealed.

“Just on his own time, not officially, so I don’t think we’re particularly scared about that problem.”

“But I think the biggest issue really is, would Total War sell on console? It’s kind of difficult to answer that question without spending all that money.”

“There’s also, which is the better platform to push for, which is the best method?” Fergusson added.

“I mean you’ve talked about using joypads, we’ve also looked elsewhere, we’re looking at everything including iPhones, online gaming as well. Just different ways of playing.”

“A legitimate question is, ‘Why would we do it on console and not on Facebook?'” McDowell pointed out.

That’s funny, last Summer we heard a very interesting tidbit about Creative Assembly, since Sega has apparentely put down a lot of money for them, so could it be a Total War-esque game tailored for the HD console crowd, no?
