    I could live with a Warhammer fantasy TW game. I'd prefer a China/Middle Kingdom: Total War though...

    I enjoy the fact that TW is always "ancient" army based. I hope they dont go to modern war- It just doesnt fit the style, maybe WWI but no way that the mode would work for WWII and beyond.

    TOTAL CRIMEAN WAR would be good... but agree, anything further on would perhaps loose the total war feel ?

    arent they supposed to be releasing Rome 2 soon ?

    CA made a partnership with UK Games workshop, so a warhammer game is very likely.

    Warhammer also fits the turn based nature of Total War - would be a fantastic 'era' to create - and reading his tweet, that would fiit in quite well with the 'like nothing we've done before'

    I think world war 1 could be pulled off and would be awesome. Also would love to see a U.S civil war total war come out.

    Akkadians, Mitanni, Assyrians, Hittites, Babylon... Plenty of ancient skull bashing still uncovered and some sweet chariot love waiting to be shared! I just hope they wont do the Fantasy General thing.

    There are mods for Empire: Total War for WWI and the War Between the States. They get some stuff wrong about the War though. Like the wrong flags for the South (they use the Navy Jack instead of the Stars and Bars), really wonky diplomacy script (in my play through, the North never declared war even after secession), ect...

    I would love to see something like this too, but not specifically confined to the Great War. I was thinking a period from 1875-1915 ish, call it 'Imperial Total War' a non linear successor to Empire Total War. Mind you such is the marked difference of combat in the 20th century you would need mew mechanics, lots of new physics and everything else besides. It would be a highly complex game and mashing it all together might make it a bit untidy. Though if they could work out the concept and actually make it work in a manner that flows well then i would be all for it. My only fear is that it would be too much of a departure from what they are used to creating and that the project may suffer as a result.

    I am exceptionally excited about Rome II however

    After having finally read some history of the period, I heartily agree.

    I hope the Mauryan empire makes it to Rome 2. At least a small piece of it in the north west as a non-playable faction!!

    They should release an Empire 2 game in a few years. Make it really complex with diplomacy and customization etc. I want to be able to create my own regiments and guard regiments and customize them. They would also need to add a bigger diversity in units per country and region. In my opinion Empire had the best grand campaign... after Rome of course.
