Paradox games tend to follow the same development path. First game in the series is ambitious and unplayable. The sequel is still flawed but fun. The third is finally stable but not as good as it should’ve been. I guess this means Victoria 2 will be worth playing.

Fantastic news!

Victoria is an excellent game and a sequel is long overdue. Hopefully it comes out of the oven a little more well-done than Hearts of Iron III :/
The thickness of your ignorance, it's like a fucking shield that repulses insight.

Surprising... Victoria didn't sell well if I remember. I was hoping Crusader Kings 2 would be next but this is fine with me.
