I mean, that’s certainly … an opinion someone could have, I suppose, but I don’t see it myself. To me it as a great way to show off the Skaven in-engine, and it was very successful for that.
I still don’t by that they are ramping down on Warhammer as a Total War IP, either. It’s a massive seller for them, even as I type this Warhammer 2 pre-orders are in the top 5 on Steam and it won’t be out for almost 6 weeks. Norsca is in the top 20, and even Warhammer 1 itself is still in the top 40.
EDIT - Some Google sleuthing shows it’s their fastest seller and top earner and continues to do better than any other Total War they’ve done. This is probably why we aren’t hearing a lot about the historical stuff, would be my guess - all hands are on this deck.
