Total War: Warhammer 3 is currently slated to launch at some point in Late 2021 for PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store and could be one of the best PC games available when it launches. The game features six factions at launch, more than Total War: Warhammer and its sequel launched with. Total War: Warhammer 2 DLC support recently concluded with the addition of new Beastman and Lizardman monsters, as well as a free update that brings mercenaries from the Ogre Kingdoms.

Sometime after the launch of Total War: Warhammer 3, a free update will be available that combines all three games into one mega-campaign, in a similar vein to the Mortal Empires expansion for Total War: Warhammer 2.
