Most games are kept alive by releasing patches or major updates if they do not have a new edition. The most recent major game released was Total War: Warhammer III on February 17, 2022. As of October 2022, the series has sold over 40.4 million copies.
During that period it eclipsed the total sales of Total War: Warhammer, which had 2.08 million copies, and Total War: Warhammer II, which sold less than one million copies. The latest Steam reports are still impressive enough to hold onto its fans and player base.
