After CK3 cucking out with removing deus vult, I do not see how paradox could do justice in a Victoria sequel considering it is set in a period that involves slavery, colonialism, imperialism, jingoism and fascism. Also 5 billion DLC incoming.

I am sure Vicky III will present the better version of history in which Belgium treated the people of Congo with respect and kindness. I also wouldnt be surprised to see the African Kangz moving their massive armies armed with machine guns and artillery through their dense railway systems to launch an invasion of Europe.

There is no way this is going to be good.

so...

Mana (broken at release, half broken after dlc 1-3)
Pops (same, maybe removed in dlc 4)
Civilized native africa and america at start date (buffed every dlc)
2/3 of social tech tree is about integrating multiculturalism (unlocking black generals/leader very fast)
More fictional fantasy nations, become wakanda as main feature of dlc 2
3 options for tariff/taxes sliders, none/average/high (this for everything, no sliders)
industry like eu buildings, giving flat production

What else?

So, current Paradox is making Victoria 3 and Wiz is the lead. I'm afraid to imagine how bad it will be.

Wiz?
The guy that fucked up Stellaris, only to move to another project (we now know it was Vic3)?

Better don't get your hopes up.

Did he also do Imperator? Because I am not sure which legacy would be worse, Imperator's or Stellaris'.
Imperator was Johan. Imperator was just totally bland/boring, not broken.
The DLC/patch that fucked up Stellaris was more like the last EU4 DLC/patch (that was also Johan).

Well Johan won't be involved.

And Chris King came back to PDS a few years back and most likely working it on it. He was always their OG Vicky guy

Victoria 3 Confirmed Via Paradox Forum Leak

Victoria%203%20Official%20Paradox%20Forum%20Leak%20Confirmed.jpg


A leaked posting on the official Paradox Interactive forums has confirmed the existence of Victoria 3. The posting, which has since been deleted, consists only of an announcement and a dev diary thumbnail, but it confirms the game is real nonetheless.

What do we know about Victoria 3?
Right now, not a lot is known about the third installment in the Victoria grand strategy series. A forum listing was spotted by a user on Reddit in which a Victoria 3 dev diary thumbnail was posted, alongside confirmation of the game. In the listing, Paradox's Martin "Wiz" Anward confirms himself as the director of the game, and acknowledges that it's been a while since the last game (which launched back in 2010). Anward says that this "isn't a belated April Fools joke", and that after "all these memes", Victoria 3 is finally happening. The listing is courtesy of freelancer Sanna Valapuro, who's currently working for Paradox, so it seems like it's legit.

This would gel with Martin Anward's current Twitter bio, in which the Paradox exec says he's "working on a secret project". Back in April, Paradox advertised for an experienced designer to work on an "unannounced project" that would require experience in "4X and grand strategy games". It would make sense if that project was Victoria 3. Despite speculation that the project might be Europa Universalis V, it seems Anward's been toiling away at a new entry in the 19th-century empire-builder.



What is Victoria and why should you be excited about a new game?
Victoria is one of Paradox's major grand strategy franchises alongside Europa Universalis, Hearts of Iron, and Crusader Kings. The Victoria games task players with creating and managing a 19th-century state; players must engage in diplomacy with friends and rivals, oversee economic and military development, and progress along the tech tree. If you're familiar with Paradox's other grand strategy games, you'll know what you're getting into here; they're games of dizzying depth and complexity which also usually have some rather amusing patch notes.

The last game in the Victoria series was 2010's Victoria 2.

Paradox will announce Victoria 3 officially at their PDXCON Remixed Announcement Show later today, with this leak happening due to some admin mistakes in the set up. The Announcement Show portion of the stream - which you can watch right now, as it's an ongoing event revolving around Paradox games - will begin at 2pm Eastern, and we're expecting the official Victoria 3 announcement during that portion of the show.

That one was by the master :). Wiz is the gay lover/apprentice of johan. The second worst dev after johan manabringer. The game will be shit for sure. Another empty generic shit like stellaris.

If they keep the mana system it's 100% going to be dogshit. Without the mana system there's a little bit of hope left.
