    I would love to finally see something related to the first crusade, but the best suited option to an expeditions game(assuming they go for a crusade setting) is certainly the 1101 Crusade(also called "Crusade of the faint-hearted" or "Oathbreakers Crusade"):

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusade_of_1101

    Several separate and unorganized small armies(many lead by people who didn't follow up on their vows to reach Jerusalem in the 1st Crusade) try to cross Anatolia as the first Crusaders did, most being slaughtered or turning back on the way. The small groups of succesfull crusaders ending up on something more akin to a pilgrimage but still helping the fledlging and unstable Kingdom formed in the aftermath of the first crusade.

    Cavalry turn-based combat might be something hard to develop I guess. Other than that the whole setting is perfect for the "small group of adventurers dropped into hostile and unconquered territory" premise.

    This is from Swen of Larian than LA guys, but apparently they're "fully" working on Fallen Heroes right now. If that's the case I guess the Third Expeditions game is still in kind of pre-production.

    (Fabulously optimistically imagining Expeditions: Rome in Divinity Engine :cool:)

    Rome? I'd prefer a setting that isn't so widely used already. One of the many expeditions into Africa or Persia could be interesting

    I agree that more refreshing settings would be cool, but since there were indications this will be set in Rome.

    Or maybe it means it isn't in the works.

    Sad news I guess. They never really confirmed a third expeditions game, only that they were working on a game. Their divinity spin off means if there is ever a new expeditions that will be years from now.

    The announcement made it sound like they were under contract to produce a third Expeditions game for THQ Nordic at some point. It wasn't just vague plans.

    Hard to think they can go full throttle on two projects at once, though.

    It's still possible we'll get the Divinity game, then a third Expeditions game with a reasonable budget via Nordic. That's a pretty great timeline to be in, really.

    I wasn't speaking solely about RPGs. There are a lot of strategy and city-builder games set during the Roman Empire. It's not a terrible choice, I'd just like to see something less explored. Expeditions: Conquistadors for example was set in a time and place that I've wanted to see more of for a long time, and I still do. Kingdom Come: Deliverance recently made me really interested in Bohemia and its history.
