Maybe they’ll pull a switcheroo and call it something other than Victoria 3, like how they called EU:Rome 2 Imperator. Throw everyone off balance?! :)
If it’s not a Victoria game, I’m very curious! Stellaris was their first attempt at a 4X hybrid and it shows, and we’ve been told there’s no news on what’s next for that title until PDXCON. I expect that announcement to be an expansion, but a Stellaris 2 isn’t out of the realm of possibility, I suppose. Has there been anything announced for CK2 after Holy Fury? That’s their one title I don’t really follow.
If it’s not a sequel to an existing franchise, then I’m doubly curious. If it’s historical then what time period? Could it be something like a fantasy GSG?
