After a year of intense petitioning on the Paradox forum for a sequel to the dynasty building, cult classic Crusader Kings, Paradox Interactive has launched a Facebook page summoning all gamers hoping for Crusader Kings 2 to unite and make their voices heard.
The declaration is simple: When this page has 25,000 fans, Paradox will announce Crusader Kings 2.

The page was quietly launched on Friday, without any major announcements to back it up, but the news has already traveled across the globe via forums, Twitter, Facebook and various media sites. Currently at 1600 + members on Facebook and parallel petitions on the Paradox forums with 40,000+ views, the gauntlet has been thrown down. It remains to be seen if gamers respond.
About Crusader Kings
Europe is in turmoil. The lands are fragmented into petty fiefs and the Emperor struggles with the Pope. At this very moment the Pope has declared that those who go to liberate the Holy Land will be freed of all sins. Gather prestige and piety and the world will whisper your name in awe. Will you co-opt other monarchs, and the Pope, under your leadership to liberate the Holy Land?
Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?
