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.
Well... I suspect the operative word was 'pogroms'. Or worse, in case of HoI.

I think Jews were already in Crusader Kings 1.

Well, we have a new hint.

7 and 3 are important numbers.

Yeah. It makes sense in the case of HoI, but regarding EU IV and CK2, the rule was just dumb (not saying they needed to implement it, but they could have).

So something about calendars?  If I remember correctly the third month was removed in the first century.  Not sure what makes seven significant off the top of my head.

Paradox makes shit games if it's not HoI, Vicky, CK, or EU. Not really caring about this.

Assuming, of course, that it doesn't fall into the same vein of HoI, Vicky, CK, or EU.

This one they're actually making. So some caring some about this (not a whole lot.)
Well, they specifically make HoI, Vicky, CK, and EU; they publish even more (Cities: Skylines being a noteworthy recent title). Looking at their forums, it looks like they only make HoI, Vicky, CK, and EU these days. So odds are it's in the same genre.

Wasn't Rome founded in 753 BC?

EU: Rome 2? It's a new IP, though... maybe pretty much that except as it's own thing rather than an EU spin-off?

Given the name 'Augustus' I'd be tempted to guess that it's something to do with Rome or the time period.

It is Rome. Julius Caesars legions had the number 3 in Gaul, while Augustus had the number 7 in his legions.

Here's hoping for intensive roman socio-political simulator.  Hopefully with better combat than most of their other stuff and perhaps navel conflict.

If it is Rome, it must have a thoroughly simulated senate. Anything less would be a disappointment.
