Arnhem, Arnhem, Arnhem.
nuff' said
That's my line!

Arnhem, Arnhem, Arnhem.

:D

Seriously though:
I hope for the early eastern front so that there I have a lot of diversity (playing commie, commie killer in the snow, dangling down a parachute as yank or tommie in France, picking off yanks on the beaches with my K98 or MG42 or playing in the big sandbox). Early westfront would also be nice.

I expect: Late west front, as there has been made a whole lot of stuff for the "late western European"  theatre for Normandy so it should be easy to extend this to the Netherlands (Operation Market Garden), the Battle of the Bulge (a bit more work but still) or the final push towards Berlin from the west.
I wouldn't be suprised of the Italian front got some more love.

I wouldn't mind either theatre though. So whatever they decide upon, I should be good. :)

The Pacific and SE Asian threatre would be a whole lot different, it would take much much more time to make statics, vehicles, player models, weapons etc. for it so it would be a very unlikely choice.

I hope to see the early Western front. Nothing beats blitzkrieging through Europe with those early tank models. Also I´d really love to see more unknown countries like Belgium or France in a video game.
But somehow I expect the campaigns that follow D-Day....which are cool but we´ve seen them in too many video games. But I guess they´re "crowd pleaser" so that would be the next logical choice...

Never heard of those countries, where are they?  ;D
But yeah, I would love to see these countries being crushedimplemented in FH2. Eben Emael, hehe, it would be awesome to spawn from the roof of the fortress as german (or land on it with a glider).

On a sidenote, I rethought it, actually I do of course think the late western front is coming next, as it is logical. However, the next major front I still guess is the Pacific, for the sake of the yanks. On the other hand, they could be happy enough with Normandy...

Unknown from a video game´s point of view, of course ^^
The most interesting thing in early Western Front is the fact that the German Panzers aren´t the invulnerable steel monsters from the late wars. Often they were even inferior and Blitzkrieg tactics had to be used to defeat them. Early Panzer3s, Panzer2s and the Skoda tanks...it´d be great to have them fighting heavy French tanks ^^

Exactly. There´s nothing more satisfying than calling in a succesful air-strike on a unsuspecting target, like a big Char B :D

I hope for early western front! I would love to see the french equipment and use Panzer Is  :). I never saw it in a game before.

I expect the pacific as the next theatre because it might lure more american players into the game  ::)

I wonder when the PzGr40 came into service? The PzkwII might do some carnage with that if they already used it in france.

EDIT: Uranium, you ain't alone, I'm not too much into pacific warfare as well as portrayed in FPS so far.
But with a lot of jungle, open environment (not like the railshooters, MOH etc.), it could give a nice new style of gameplay.

Its probably just me, but I can't see the attraction of the Pacific theatre.  Maybe its because I can't get into the whole naval side of it.  I'd much rather fight the japanese in Burma and China than on the Islands.

Nice to see all the feedback though.  Currently, it seems that the late western front is expected next, while the love is for the early eastern and pacific.  No love for SE asia though :(.

Panzer Is are cool.
