Shogun: Total War 2 at E3?

New instalment to take series "back to basics," says report

Creative Assembly's next Total War game will be revealed at E3 next month, a report claims.

According to usually reliable VE3D, the new PC-only instalment "eschews the gunpowder weaponry of recent Total War titles and gets back to basics." Exactly what the fans have been asking for, then.

Backing up the report is a Tweet Creative Assembly posted last week: "Just to confirm, we are still working on Total War and aren't planning to get sporty," it said.

The developer's also recently revealed that the developer's Brisbane arm is at work on an Xbox 360 and PS3 sports game.

We're already thinking Shogun: Total War 2. Sega gave us a straight "no comment" when contacted.
