Dev Diary 2: What we do!

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

C'mon guys, are you even trying to make a dev diary series? What's the point of making them and calling the such if you aren't going to tell us anything useful? Already two dev diaries with nothing and whereas the first might have been a bit touching this one is meaningless to most of us.

I would be extremely happy if this was an expansion that focuses on the Hundred Years War. Better diplomacy and warfare, improved late game and a bit of fluff for England and France.

They mentioned in the previous DD how they plan to release this expansion sometime around Christmas. They can't really post full dev diaries now, so far away from the release.
In my opinion, it's better to get little info now, than to wait for December.

Perhaps this new expansion will be CK2's equivalent of Art of War that I've been dreaming of for so long.

At the very least pacts make me think diplomacy and/or war are going to be tweaked.

In the lead in for HL, before the expansion was announced, they still talked a bit about some of the changes they were making and posted random snippets from the changelog. Primarily, it was the stuff that was slated for the free patch, and those pre-announcement diaries were far meatier than this.

No they did not they said there would be dev diaries up until christmas nothing on how many expansions would be out in that period. Now it seems unlikely that it'll be more than one considering it's already rocktober but we don't know that for certain.

No ?

It hasn’t been properly announced yet meaning I can’t disclose any details, but we are working on a new expansion and you’ll get all the details in future dev diaries (we’ve planned one per week until Christmas).

Though i agree that they didn't say it would only be for one major DLC/expansion.
Could still be two (more or less) major DLCs released at the same time. Who knows, i don't.

It is better than nothing but nevertheless a bad sign. Where are the three major DLCs they promised to us last year for 2015. It Q4 and they haven't even anounced their second one.

I interprete that as them realising that three might too much.
It might be they release both at the same time.
"Promised" is a bit misleading. Also why want more DLC right now if they are buggy in the end...
Announcement is too early for christmas. It's what usually, six or eight weeks in advance ?

Well there was Common Sense for EU, Horse Lords for CK, there in production another one for Eu and now we got fourth. Not to mention new games like Stellaris, HoI IV and Hollowpoint.

Darn. I was hoping "fundamental changes" referred to the technology and opinion rework Groogy mentioned several months ago.

Oh well. Fundamental changes of any kind are always good! We all know CK2 needs quite a few of them!

Hi everyone!
Nearing the Gold Master (this is the version of the game we will release), we stop developing new features and focus fully on bug fixing and balancing. Since the Gold Master milestone date and the actual release date usually are a couple of weeks apart, we keep working on bugs and minor improvements for the first patch until the release (and beyond).
View attachment 139171
I hope the Gold Master edition is not the end of Crusader Kings II

Yeah that's what I said: No they did not say there would be a DLC for christmas they did say there would be devdiaries until christmas (as you specifically quotes one per week).

Well usually a DLC gets released after the last Devdiary and it would make sense releasing then me thinks.
Unless of course, you refer to the possibility of releasing one DLC before christmas and the second then, while doing devdiaries during that time.
If so, why didn't you simply say that ?

They've done three every year since the game was released and they could handle it. Their not so good performances of last year(RoI being a buggy mess on release and Charlemagne coming with broken features like viceroyalties, then they promised us not only bugfixing but also a new DLC which broke the game for Christmas AI couldn't raise levies) is a sign of CK2 ending it's production cycle. HL and governments looked like they were going to save this game but now I don't know what to believe. Dev diaries until Christmas probably mean a new year release. We might not be getting even two DLCs this year.

I hope the Gold Master edition is not the end of Crusader Kings II
Gold Master is just the name for version that is fit to be relased to customers. They probably have had "gold master" version for the original vanilla game, each DLC & accompanying patch and even for the major patches without accomppanying DLC.
