Its been 7 years since crusader kings 2 was released with wonderful dlcs,expansion and content pack,and amazing mods but i think paradox should stop working on it and just focus on a follow up game. Not necessarily CK3 but something that takes the core concept of the game,dynasty and politcs simulator,and add more depth to the current mechanics. Paradox games are in all honesty a bit bland if you just play vanilla for a long time and it gains back it charm after you download mods or overhauls. It might partially be the massive amount of work that needs to be done in historical games like this,research,map design,localisation etc etc. So itd be better to just narrow the focus on just a specific region,in an interesting time period with good records and add depth and complexity to existing features and adding new ones.Like for one thing-rehauling diplomacy.Vanilla CK2 diplomacy is functional but restrictive and dull,dumbing down the entire process of statecraft to simple parameters taking away the entire possibility of dirty diplomacy and backroom dealing.Secondly wealth,lands, inheritance and marriage should be more indepth. Like the absence of populations in ck2,which is understandable given the lack of histoircal records,but if the game should choose to narrow its focus to a region rather than the world,like the HRE or Greece or Italy in antiquity,gives the opportunity to flesh the game out,rework the tiered hierachy of the game to account for the mess of relations between liges and vassals. It would be interesting to see what paradix has in plans for the next one if there is a next one that is.
