I'm sure it's going to be a very good game of WW II, but I'm still a bit disappointed. I would have preferred any non-WWII. I suppose I'll buy this one, though. I hope the money HoI3 makes will be used to finance Vicky 2 or a Cold War game... :p

Johan: "with a third installment of Hearts of Iron seemingly being at the top of everyone's wish list..."

Well...

Not quite, but...

Nevertheless, it should be great fun. I just hope that PI isn't going to desert all other, less profitable titles.

Shall need to see and hear a lot more before I get excited. On a 3d engine, HoI3 could well be HoI2 Lite. And that's not the game for me sadly.

Honestly? I'm a little disappointed. I wouldn't normally be disappointed that Paradox are releasing a new game, but this whole mystery 'reveal it but don't name it' thing kinda backfired on me. I was very much hoping for something like Crusader Kings 2, or a new era altogether (viking ages, perhaps).

I'll probably get it anyway, because it's Paradox, but I never really got into HoI that much (and haven't tried HoI 2).

it'll come out I'm sure and be based on HOI3 engine and gameplay, like how EU:ROME came out a couple years after EU3
