I personally have never played the original Rome but I have bought every TW game since Medieval2 and would love for a reboot of rome similar to Shogun2 or perhaps even going back to the Medieval times with updated gameplay similar to Shogun2.
This topic is locked from further discussion.

I would really like a Medieval 3 and Rome 2 will be even better, but i don't know about a civil war theme because there will be no variety of factions it'll be only just two. But i really would like a WWII theme; something like a combination of the total war over all strategy and a Company of Heroes battles and game play

Actually, (and I know this isn't a popular opinion) I'd rather see a TW take on WW2. "War Leaders:Clash of Nations" came close to what a TW:WW2 game could be like, so imagine that only with more depth and I think it would be the most awesome TW game to date. Given the choice between a Rome2 and a Med3 however, since Med2 came out not that long ago and got a great graphics boost over the original, I think they'd be more inclined to do Rome2.

I would love Medieval 3 but that is one game they will not make 100% and here is why:
Third paragraph from the bottom of the article
"We've basically got a list of pretty much everything that anyone could imagine on it," he says of plans for forthcoming Total War games. "We have constant arguments about not what we should do but the order in which we should do them. There are so many options and I don't think we're going to run out of ideas. I think it'll be a long time until we do anything with a three in it."

THIS JUST IN EVERYBODY:
Looks like we'll be getting an announcement soon! July 6th at Rezzed, unless they somehow decide to reveal at E3, which the article would indicate they will not due to it being described as 'exclusive'.
I would actually bet money on it being Rome 2. They wouldn't go Medieval 3 without going back to Rome first. I would doubt they would go into China just yet, and I don't think they have the willpower/tech to quite pull off something completely left-field like Fantasy: Total War or something.
The original Rome was actually the game the brought me to GameSpot in the first place. It has been a long time since then. The time is nigh...

Personally I've been thinking about the idea of a Medieval 3: Total War. I think that it would be the most entertaining, and with today's gaming engines they can vastly improve the game. For example more intricate and better interactions between the soldiers when they fight. It could also be a goodopportunity to improve on details from Medieval 2, for example introduciing naval battles, improving soldiers, siege equipment, campaign map, the option to hold prisoners, diplomacy, etc... The list is almost endless.

Rome 2 for sure. I think it would still be too soon to see Medieval 3. Another idea could be Acient Greece, before the rise of Rome. It would be interesting to play as one of the many city states. Or Ancient Egypt, where you can compete against the Hittite Empire or Assyria. Another possible idea could be at some point in Ancient China.

Economic TW: You have to buy debt to other nation, then speculate and crash their economy. or Religious TW: You creat a religion (mono or poly, as you want) then you convert people to your faith and make them burn every non-believers. or Total Cold War: you amass lots of weapon of mass destruction then wait. I've got more ! If CA looks for ideas, they can ask me. R2TW could also be fun.Cassace_
i like these creative ideas... how about Total War on Terror. You build up armies of drones and use them to wipe out people on your secret kill list. Or Total War on Drugs... you spend a lot of time and money looking through your own territory for regualr people smoking joints and have your forces arrest them and throw them in jail for 20 years.

[QUOTE="andy_popov"]Would definitely love to see either Medieval 3 or Rome 2... Though a completely different option I'm going to throw out there... A "Lord of the Rings, Middle Earth Total War"?smitherean
Westeros: Total War. Nerdgasm.Well actually, there are both Middle Earth TW AND Westeros TW. Sure, both of them are fan-made, but Third Age (the LotR one) is simply AMAZING. The Westeros one is in a very early stage, but so far it's looking good, let's see how it evolves. But I agree an "official" release of these games would be awesome, it would be nice if say they hired the creator of Third Age and make it official or something, you know, the way Valve does. But I expect the next TW to be Rome most probably. The original was amazing, and a remake seems reasonable. I doubt we'll see a new Medieval since Medieval 2 is not that old itself. If I might throw out a couple "strange" ideas out there: An "Asia: Total War" would be pretty amazing if you ask me. You could have different factions in China, Japan, Thai, Indians and all kind of different cultures and "civilizations" out there, AND we could get away a bit from the Europe scenario. Another wilder idea I'd like to see is America:TW, and by this I DO NOT MEAN US:TW. I mean the whole continent of America. Say you could have from the european conquest all the way to the wars of independization of North and South America. (being from Argentina this idea just drives me crazy, however unlikely it is heheh)
