The Game Workshop has announced that they will return to the iconic Warhammer Fantasy, Old World icon set in the coming years. The Old World wasn't the primary setting for any tabletop games from 2015 when Warhammer: The Game of Fantasy Battles was replaced by Warhammer: Age of Sigmar after the apocalypse in a universe called The End Times. However, the Old World is quite popular as setting up Warhammer Fantasy's biggest video games – such as Total War: Warhammer 2 and Warhammer: Vermitid 2. The studio announcement is little more than a log announcement and logo. More, says Fasting, is "a long way off. Years. More than two. Like three or more. "
Incorporating more than one IP in the same setting and line is not new to the game workshop. Horace Heresy's predecessor setting for Warhammer 40,000 was used for both tablet and video games. It seems likely that the same dual-game approach is what the Warhammer Games: Old World likes.
The old world has definitely made video games healthier in recent memory: Both Total War and Vermintid are pretty good games, Chaosban was released this year, and Warhammer Internet was more popular than it could indicate. The gaming workshop did not explicitly explain that the popularity of video games is the reason for the return of the classic setting, but their post particularly calls them Virhamer video games as a way to "jump into the Old World at the moment".
The Old World began in 1983 as a setting for Warhammer: The Game of Fantasy Battles and continued until 2015. He has produced numerous novels, spin-off games, and was in the eighth edition when the Games Workshop ceased to support him. If you want to know more about it, we have a summary of great events in the Old World timeline. Her tablet RPG, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, continues through third parties.
