That's not what I heard. I heard they didn't wanted to invent and make 30 ship models, and opted for cheaper decision to simply keep naval combat out. I played with some designs and found decent way how to NOT make any models (perhaps 2D drawing at most) but how to make ship combat critical and engaging. (And wasting horrible amount of money of each sea dependant player.)We're talking about the same company who spent a decade unable to make their AI understand how to launch a somewhat competent naval invasion, to the point that they entirely removed the feature.
I heard that it was because Games Workshop thought that Naval combat in TWWH2 would interfere with Battlefleet Gothic sales and nixed the idea.
