• 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.

I wonder how the Paradox system of constant development would mesh with complex systems necessary for Victoria III.
They could have 'Scramble for Africa' 'WW1' 'US Civil War' 'East Asian Westernization-China and Japan' etc. It doesn't seem all that hard to plug this with DLCs. I suspect they'll make mistakes and learn from them.

I think there's a good chance that we get a Victoria III announcement this year. They'll want something big to cap off PDXCon. CK3 will be freshly released. HOI4, Stellaris, and Imperator are still being actively developed (so we'll probably get expansions announced for some of them, and maybe a first expansion for CK3). EU4 may have had its final expansion in Emperor, but I doubt they'll announce EU5 that quickly (it was over a year between the release of Holy Fury and the announcement of CK3). So unless Paradox doesn't announce a new GSG at all, the only candidates are Victoria III or a whole new IP.

The idea of rebranding has a lot of merit. I'm partial to "Blood & Iron" as a possible title.

EU IV Emperor will be the same as Holy Fury for CK II, last dlc. After that they will announce Victoria III. It is under development right now, and will be scheduled for 2021.

Source: Trust me bro.
well,

so if that is true, iff that is true, if and only if that is true,
consider how long it took paradox to develop emperor and ck3, and how much more complex vic2 is than eu and ck,
i can proudly guess we will may or may not even get it in 2025.

Paradox is more likely to launch an EU 5 and HOI V before a Vic3, perhaps a Stellaris 2.

EU VII, this time we use Elon Musk's tech to beam it straight into your brain. It's not micromanagement when you can handle it with just a thought!

Given that the version of V2 everyone actually plays is a constantly developed mod, I suspect quite well.
