Sega Announces Total War: Rome II

True to Sega's word that Total War will be one of the publisher/developer's on-going series, the company announced Total War: Rome II, a sequel to their hit strategy PC game via press release. The game is scheduled to release "some time next year."

“Our games have always encompassed a grand vision,” said developer Creative Assembly's creative director Mike Simpson. “But we’re now pushing that vision at both ends of the spectrum. From the immense reach of the sandbox campaign right down to the human-level drama of a single warrior on the battlefield, we’re aiming for an unprecedented level of detail and scale.”

Creative Assembly further promises that Total War: Rome II will be "the most expansive turn-based campaign and the largest, most cinematic real-time battles yet seen in any game."

I'm a huge fan of the Total War series, so yes, this greatly intrigues me.
