One of the most prolific IPs in the strategy
Total War Saga: Troy represents one more installment of a franchise that has multiple iterations, and with which Creative Assembly has experimented not only in historical times such as the rise of the Roman Empire, medieval times or Feudal Japan, but also with the Warhammer fiction. Such has been the level that the British study has reached with it that Microsoft trusted them to carry out Halo Wars 2, with an excellent result. However, there is no need to pigeonhole this team into a single genre, as they were also able to create a more than remarkable survival horror with Alien Isolation, released in 2014 and being one of the most praised horror games of the present generation. .
