A Warhammer Age of Sigmar RTS is coming from Elite: Dangerous developer Frontier

Quietly buried in an investor relations note, Frontier Developments has announced that it has acquired the license to develop a real-time strategy game based on the Warhammer Age of Sigmar setting from Games Workshop. Age of Sigmar is the current fantasy tabletop miniatures game from Games Workshop, having supplanted Warhammer Fantasy Battles in 2015, with a second edition in 2018, and is one of the most popular miniatures games in the world.

So, that’s a ways away then.

You achieve a flow state of mayhem and violence."

And that's just if you chat with members of the FCC's five commissioner panel.
