What surprise do you think Anton Strenger teased about?

    A:-Third expansion.
    B:-A new standalone spin off of Civilization.
    C:-Something else

    I think B is likely as we are this close to E3 and A is too soon.

    I am totally out of touch with the Civilization series right now as soon as I watched the latest video as youtube notified me, I came here to post this lol

    I am not a German or a white or a westerner but I rather not see Hitler as a german leader.
    German have a lot of good leaders to represent their nation.

    They are adding Babylon or Byzantine. Maybe Portugal.

    Wouldn't be surprised, so far Civ 4 and Civ 5 both had a stand alone. Maybe it's Beyond Earth 2, wouldn't mind if it borrowed mechanics/systems form both original B.E and Civ 6. Would be a cool game.

    Would be even better if they actually managed to get the IP from EA for new Alpha Centauri mod.

    Seems like a third expansion pack to me, but that doesn't entirely make sense. It's been 4 months since the last one, therefore it should take a while before anything is announced.

    I think it might be a smaller scale Dlc pack with some additional leaders

    My guess would be some DLC Leader/Civs like we saw before the first expansion. No way it's a 3rd expansion already and I'd be a bit bummed if they do a standalone as that means they aren't working on Civ VI for a while. Though his tease piqued my interest I wouldn't be sure it's something of note yet. It could just be behind the scenes videos or a new artbook for sale or something stupid like that. Best to not get our hopes up quite yet.

    C = A DLC that corrects all the Imbalanced, Inaccurate, Unplayable Mistakes they have made already in Civ VI and all its DLCs and Expansion Packs. On the surface, that will be a 'small' DLC because most of it will be correcting math errors, Factor/Strength Imbalances, Production versus Cost Imbalances, etc.

    There's no sense adding new Content until they fix all the old Content . . .

    Well I would put my money down that they would not leave an art team lying around doing nothing.

    Nominally related but didn't they tease last year that Firaxis was working on a third game 'franchise' (or franchise starter attempt) outside Civ and Xcom?

    I hope so. There is a real chance.

    To early for a new expansion.

    I would love a BE2. When RT came out I think it did a lot to show they know how to make that game work, unfortunately it was placed on top of a poor foundation so it never got better than mediocre I would be all aboard them taking a new stab at it.

    It'll just be more reveals about the update between now and when the patch notes get released.

    You guys really need to learn to stop setting yourselves up for disappointment.

    Honestly, I'm hoping for more small DLC packs, featuring new wonders, civs, and leaders, and maybe even some new scenarios to go alongside the full release of world builder? As exciting as full expansions are, I don't want the game to get too weighed down by new systems.

    I don't recall previous videos hinting at more stuff, and if they did, it actually was worthwhile enough.

    It's too early for a third expansion. It could be a spin-off, which I may or may not be interested in. I'd like it to be more DLC.

    But this could be entirely correct:
