“We are delighted to announce this licence with Games Workshop. I personally think it’s great news that two such well-established and world-class creative UK companies with global reach are collaborating on a new project. We look forward to working closely with the team at Games Workshop to bring the rich world of Warhammer Age of Sigmar to a wide audience through an immersive and accessible real-time strategy game on both PC and console.”David Braben; Frontier CEO & Founder
The game is currently aiming for release in the financial year 2023, which ends 31st May 2023, so its some way off.
I’ve really enjoyed playing Frontier’s roster of videogames, so I’m very much looking forward to seeing what they do with an RTS for Age of Sigmar!
