Bit Tech spotted Sega may have plans to turn their Total War series into an MMO:
Sega West boss Mike Hayes also hinted in a discussion with CVG that Sega hopes to take the Total War series in a "new direction" - possibly an MMO.
"People often ask if we'd take Total War in that [MMO] direction and we're constantly looking at it, but MMO is a very competitive market," Hayes said. "...We want to get the core games right before anything else."
"We've got our shooter with AVP and our RPG with Alpha Protocol - we really want to make that into a franchise. That's the area where we need some success, to sequel-ise that. If you think about it, we can sequel-ise Bayonetta, AVP, Alpha Protocol - if we can make a hit of something like Vanquish - then you add that to Football Manager and Virtua Tennis - we actually have a broad portfolio."
