  • 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

Any official confirmation about the game going alpha yet? :D
Not officially, but Johan said it was submitted for alpha in DD14. I'm going to assume that was successful, because I'm optimistic and dying to play this game.

pretty sure they will release it as hearts of iron is their flagship game.

it will be like everything to do with every version of HOI it will arrive when they are ready to release it.

personally i just hope for all future releases they work out a realistic release date, then add 6 to 12 months to it. then they will have more time to work on a game and if it is ready when they origionally thought they would be able to release it, then the fans will all be like "yippee an early release" instead of "FFS another delay in the release."

still i cant wait for the release of the game or the next DD
