Total War: WARHAMMER breaks franchise sales record in its first week

SEGA has announced that Creative Assembly’s Total War: WARHAMMER has gone on to break franchise records during its first week on-sale. As the press release reads, the game has sold more than half a million units in the first few days, setting a franchise record for the fastest selling Total War title on Steam.

Studio Director, Tim Heaton, said:

“Total War: WARHAMMER has already proven itself as a runaway commercial success and more importantly we know our players are really enjoying the game. We have been regularly topping 100k concurrent players.”

Tim then claimed that the team paid particular attention to stability and performance, though as we’ve already showcased, the game is plagued by CPU scaling issues in DX11. The new DX12 patch that will be released soon is said to offer great scaling on multiple CPU cores, so stay tuned for more.

As Tim Heaton concluded:

“The team paid particular attention to stability and performance throughout the game’s development and thoroughly enjoyed creating new ways to play Total War within Games Workshop’s stunning Warhammer Fantasy world. We’re very proud of it, and it’s wonderful to see the game receiving such a great reception from critics, Total War veterans and new players alike.”
