    To echo a lot of others thoughts, I think Shogun 2 is practical, moreover anything else. It was the flagship game that started it all and giving it some new life would hopefully see a lot of people return to the TW series.

    Mind you thats if CA don't pee everyone off with day zero bugs and crappy ai that they have been prone to release.

    NTW is the least buggy TW at 1.0 in the series' history, at least since Rome (admittedly I'm fuzzy on STW and MTW).

    Anyways, I hope they go deeper into the 19th century. Franco-Prussian War, Crimean War, American Civil War, Mexican-American War, Japan opening up, Rush for Africa, etc. Lots and lots there to cover.

    A total war that starts in 500BC and ends in 1900 or so

    Hello Kitty: Total War.

    Doesn't matter all that much as far as which setting they pick. If the gameplay is good, people will appreciate it.

    In a month or two we may even know what the Next Total War will be.

    I am betting on Rome II Total War...that seems safe enough.

    They, and by extension Sega, have a significant portion of their hardcore fan base ticked off at the moment, with what the fans view as broken promises and substandard product.

    If I were them I would be looking for ways to reverse that, at least to some extent.

    It is just my thoughts but what would make the largest number of dissidents happy would be mod tools and showing further support of the mod community.

    Most people don’t mod and perhaps most don’t even play mods but they do view it as an indicator of the company’s good will toward the fans.
    There is RTW2 already and it's called Europa Barbarorum..

    But seriously, I wouldn't mind a RTW2 from CA if it would be a bit more historically accurate than RTW.

    I would be disappointed if TW ended but I would take a look at the competitor if there was one but right now I'll think positive.

    I wonder if they will have a modern warfare total set in WWII or even present day?

    That is how I feel. It is a great game series.

    If it ended now, I think the strategy game field will never be the same.

    Total War just needs to create a game based in like World War II or World War I era. Or Space Age. Or Mythology. That would be pretty cool.

    A couple people have mentioned the American Civil War and then it was disparaged for only having 2 sides. However, what if the whole continent was involved in the game? Within the Civil War, many tribes were sorting out which side to support. If there were some amount of division by state, maintaining the loyalty of different states could be an integral part of the game. Britain could have also been conceivably involved and traded with both sides to some degree. Russia also sent some Monitors over expressing some support of the Union. Meanwhile, just to the south, Mexico just finished a civil war of their own and was promptly invaded by France which eventually involved Cinco de Mayo among other things. And Spain briefly reabsorbed the Dominican Republic. So it seems there are enough other players to keep it interesting.

    Britain and France could have intervened, The Union reached out to Mexico. Almost all of the western Indian tribes rebelled at their treatment and went to war. Russia in 1863 threatened to go to war should Britain or France enter hostilities. Other States and localities had threatened secession, including New York City. It is not a matter of having too few factions. It would be tying them in, in some coherent fashion.

    I personally would like to see a Total War: China. A lot of great time periods.
    The American Civil War would be great, if only if, they work on the BAI. Otherwise, it will have limited play-ability.

    6 years old thread... but given that we're in the Empire Total War forum, an ETW2 would actually be worthwhile. Huge empires and huge battles.
