Creative Assembly celebrates 30 years

Creative Assembly are today celebrating 30 years of being in business, which is a great achievement for an independant studio. The studio was founded in 1987 and has worked on some of the biggest names in the industry, like Halo Wars 2 and the stunning Alien Isolation. Here's some stuff you may not know about Creative Assembly.

  • CA was founded in 1987. We started out porting Amiga titles to DOS.
  • The original Shogun: Total War (2000) started life as an RPG based on the Ming-dynasty Chinese novel Journey To The West.
  • In our early days, we very nearly relocated to Singapore.
  • Before Total War took off, we made rugby, cricket and Australian Rules football games.
  • As of August 2017, CA employs over 500 people at our studios in the UK and Sofia, Bulgaria.
  • We have 8 major projects in the works, four of which are unannounced.

To celebrate 30 years of awesome strategy games development, xenomorph terrorising and gratuitous goblin-tossing, CA is gifting Total War: WARHAMMER players with 30 new Regiments of Renown. Fortifying the Race-rosters of the Beastmen, Bretonnia, Chaos Warriors, Norsca and the Wood Elves, this significant update is available free and easy through Total War Access.
