Blood Bowl 3 had originally intended to touchdown sometime in 2021, then slipped into 2022. Its release date has now been announced and it’s a little later, still. The turn-based death sport will return on February 23rd, 2023. There’s a brief release date trailer below.
If you’re not familiar, Blood Bowl is like American football, but with Warhammer Fantasy orcs, and controlled like an XCOM skirmish. It’s based on one of the older Games Workshop board games, and a faithful recreation. The previous two games from developer Cyanide have arguably been successful enough that you can credit them with Games Workshop’s decision to start making new boards and minis for the game.
Perhaps the final game will take more risks than expected or be so polished that conservatism won’t matter. We’ll find out in a few months. In the meantime, feel free to wishlist Blood Bowl 3 on Steam!
