IMHO, Paradox are stuck in an eternal loop of DLC for their current crop of games, there is no end to them until there is a new game (CK3, EU5...).Hi everyone, I am just dropping in here from CK2, I know CK2 has like 1 major expansion left. But I am curious how many DLCs does EUIV have planned left after Mandate of Heaven?
Cause I am planning to get the game but I would like get all the DLCs that are expansions and the unit/content packs... basically everything that isn't the music/song packs and e-books. I would like to get all of the dlcs at once without having to buy them piece meal like I have been doing with CK2. Because its hard to figure which ones to buy and how to buy them... because Paradoxes weird DLC bundles for some of the expansions and their content packs, while some others don't have those bundles.
EU4 and CK2 are very good games and they don't "need" a graphical update, since they are all about mechanics.
The problem is, if/when they develop CK3/EU5, they 'll be forced to make a Civ5/6 style of development cycle : release a game without the mechanics of the previous games in order to patch them as DLCs (formerly known as expansions)
So for the next few years, expect Vicky2, but no follow-up to EU4 and CK2 before long. I doubt theyll stop the DLC cash cow stopping from those 2 popular games.
