The ever-resourceful users over on the NeoGAF forums
have picked up on what appears to be teaser image for a new game in The Creative Assembly's acclaimed Total War series in the latest issue of Australian print mag PC Powerplay (via: CVG
The telling image features artwork from the 2004 strategy game Rome: Total War with the large Roman numeral II overlayed, suggesting that the next issue of the magazine will feature a full reveal of what we presume will be "Total War: Rome II" (the GAF users and CVG seem to have forgotten that SEGA moved the 'Total War' part to the title's prefix for the launch of Shogun 2).
The magazine supposedly goes on sale July 18th, but it's unlikely they'll be the only ones in the know by then, so stay tuned for more details as we hear about them.

And the awesome awesome music.
Medieval 2 and Rome are easily two of the best games I've ever played.

Hopefully they keep most of the old features (traits gained, speeches, etc) but clean up the UI a ton.
Every time I try to go back and play a campaign, I think of the newer games UI and then die a little inside

Rome: TW was my fav. Man, the epic battles I had in that. I remember once my small army faced an army that was like 5 times the size of mine, odds were not in our favour. Everyone died except my General and his retinue. They managed to counter charge all the other units and win the battle. Epic.
