Ancient times game would fit CK2 mechanics, since interpersonal relationships had huge effect back then and there was no nationalism or any other troublesome thingies.

Unless this happens to be Crusader Kings 3 or Victoria 3 my excitement level is zero.

Let me help you with this.
There is one CK2 inteview that the dev clearly say that they have plan to make new IP with CK mechanic before they go CK3. :)

OK if it has the same mechanics might not be bad then.

I suspect it's 'we'd like to make an ancient Rome DLC for CK2 but it's too much individual research, altered mechanics, portraits and whatnot to make it just a DLC, so it's standalone'.

We are doomed. It's just that whatever is going to kill us all just happens to be, from a scientific standpoint, pretty frickin' awesome.

In order to portray Rome and Carthage meaningfully, they would need a whole new set of mechanics for parliaments and parliamentary factions anyway.

I also believe this to be related to the Roman Empire.

A real wild card would be something having to do with Far East, though. That is the place constantly ignored in Paradox games despite China having interesting and wild history for zillions of years.

I'd say that there's no way P-Doxy would ever break their European focus, but they did end up eventually breaking their no Jews rule for CKII and EU4, so maybe, maybe...

If I was a tumblerinna, I would use your post to put up a shitstorm saying Paradox doesn't allow Jews inside their premises.

I have honestly gotten to the "wary eye" level of suspicion towards Paradox regarding never allowing anything to do with Jews into their games during relevant historical periods until Sons of Abraham.

It is just because lizard people are so OP compared to others. Multiplayer balance.

Personally i hope for something like Emperor of the fading suns with CK2 mechanics.

While I don't think Paradox will ever venture into scifi, Dune in CK2-like mechanics would be amazing.

Nah, my money is on some kind of FPS game where you play as Augustus Gloop, the ill fated German child from Roald Dahls "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" in his goal to win a golden ticket by consuming ALL THE CHOCOLATE.
