Total War, the massive real-time series, is getting a spinoff series called Total War Saga. Total War Saga will focus on smaller moments in time than the main series, but will still offer a turned-based campaign and real time battles. However, these battles will last just a few weeks or months, and is the main difference between Total War and Total War Saga.
The game director, Jack Lusted said: “Sagas won’t be revolutionary new titles or introduce brand-new eras. They’ll follow-on from previous Total War games and inhabit the same time-period, or at the very least relate to it. But these are certainly Total War games.”
Eurogamer says they have been told to expect Total War Saga to launch before the next main instalment of the series.
