Paradox is trolling, they know people will think "Nero was a Roman emperor so it must be Rome II", but the answer is probably something totally different. The image hint suggest fantasy setting imo.

They didn't troll, because they already confirmed that it isn't Rome II.

We know at least one of the planned releases has a fantasy-ish setting from the artwork we've seen so far (particularly the hobbit-esque character picture). Since everyone expects the other to be HOI4 . . . I have to wonder, is it really HOI4?

They didn't troll, because they already confirmed that it isn't Rome II.
That doesn't make calling their new project "Project Nero" not a troll of epic-tastic-licious proportions.

Yeah, a bit of a dick move to be honest. Couldn't they have just called it Project Muffin or something, it's not the final name of the game anyway so why pick a name that is bound to be thought to be Rome 2.

Well, maybe I'm wrong, but nobody from PDS or PI said that codename must mean something.
You are correct, but often apparently the codenames have been very related to the game.

Because they're as cruel and evil as the Name they used.

HoI4? As I said in the other forum, one hint was that it had ships, and the title is named "Armstrong", most likely a reference to Neil Armstrong, so I think it's a space 4X game.

Frankly, I hope you're right. I've been longing to see a space-based, CK2-esque game from Paradox (not necessarily 4X because they usually start with an unpopulated play-area). A modern version of what Emperor of The Faded Suns could have been, with, say, a galactic empire with competiting families and factions.

I'd be happy to give WW2 a rest for a while - if any part of history has been over-used for games, it's 1939-45.

If they announce that I will sell my possessions, move to Sweden and camp outside their front door with a sign saying "will work for free".
