The various fan forums are a abuzz with the official announcement for the next Total War game.
It has been confirmed to be Total War Rome II.
Here is a link to a preview with some still shots:http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/07/02/total-war-rome-2-preview/
On a personal note:
This may sound like heresy,and although I am a great fan of the series in general, I am a bit disappointed that they are going back to this period in history since it is my least favorite. Being a fan, I of course bought the first Rome TW, but maybe only played through two campaigns. I also have both of the expansions and have never ever played them at all.
I was really hoping for a grand 19th century game battling world wide with all the emerging technology. At 67 this year, I hope I
will still be gaming when they get back to either Med 3 or Empire 2 or whatever they are going to call it.
