If it is a soccer or any other ball game, it would be pretty pathetic. Imagine soccer players running round the field with rifles and some in a line regiment or mounted by cav. I don't know if the soccer councils would allow that. :P I highly doubt this would happen.

The Soccer idea is a definite joke based on the fact that the Australian division is working on a sports game. The British division is working on the Total War title.

Anyway the new game will almost certainly be in the Ancient period. A photograph of a Greek Corinthian Helmet came with the announcement. So I'm hoping a broad Ancient time bracket going from I don't know- The Myceneans through to the Roman Empire.

Dreams are free.

I am also really looking forward to this. Somehow more exciting than another gunpowder game. 8)

kinda wierd at the totalwar.com it has an hourglass that counts down from 2010 to 1908? Sparton made me aware of this. but this is also alluding to the corinithian helmet. 1908 wasw around a WW1 era. Man I hope they stick to an ancient game and not this time period. Would be lame IMO.

Ok they are definitely teasing us, cause now the hourglass shows it stop at 1824, with tons of sand left. so I think we should expect an ancient game. this proves it I think. :D

Yeh the hour glass has been steadily decreasing. It was at 1870 the other day. Some numbers geek has already determined that at the current rate of decrease by the time of the announcement it will also be bang smack in the ancient period.

ok. don't be too enthusiastic about the following ''news'' because it might be misleading. could be a hoax or wrong info or anything else related to that.

there is a possibility that the new TW title is going to be (don't get excited - we can't now if this is trustworthy at all) Shogun 2

I spotted it here - ccs forums.

As I've wrote King I've found that ''info'' on CCS forums. However let us not assume too quickly. For example there is more info on this like here:
shogun2

I would say that until CA officially announce the new TW game title we can only speculate what it might be.

I hope it will stop at 1530, because Sengoku Jidai is and always will be the perfect setting for a Total War game. Rome could be good as well, provided that the battles are nothing like the Arcadey bullshit of RTW.

Long time no posting :P I have my money on Rome probably something around the Punic War's era :) Although with CA you never know....

Yep my money's on the ancient period again. There's mega mass interest in the period, TV shows and a Roman blockbuster coming out early 2011 to stir it up. Too much to hope for a Shogun 2 but I think they'd just overcomplicate it and mess it up with too many different units anyway.
