Historical or not, that flag's on several screenshots. I believe a German nation of some kind will be in.

Hwll it should have more racism! This is the conquest of the Americas there should be genocide and slavery!

and damn, the Byzantine empire in a game about american conquest?  I almost cried laughing...

it's like that: ottomans in Cossacks for example look like some camel riding arabs. that's racism. now they do a Prussian nation for AoE3 and call it Germans. that's racism. they just merge some independent nations (including mine) and give it a sterotypical look just to please some dumb kiddies that don't know better. I also once noticed that in RoN the ottoman special units look like indians (and much more). like merging incas, mayas, aztecs, cherokee and label it "indians" or natives....

 

and the question remains, why shoudl there be Germans in a discvoery of america game? it makes perfectly no sense....

How do you know they merge several German nations together and call it Prussia? Perhaps they'll make a Prussian civ. and call it "Prussia".

[nitpick]Ottomans have the same building set as Nubians, Bantu and Egyptians. Persians have the same set as Indians. Incas, Mayas and Aztecs share a building set. There are no Cherokee in RoN, but Lakotha and Iroquois, who also share a building set.[/nitpick]

I agree with that.

Perhaps because there will be a 7 Years' War and since Prussia was one of the heaviets contestants of the 7 Years' War in Europe they feel they have to have a Prussia.

Although I won't count on it being in, Sweden did have a colony in the New World, named New Sweden ( Delaware). Anyway, in that Cossacks game they added Germany and Russia instead, and I won't doubt they'll do something similar here. Sales above all.

If there will be a revolutionary campaign they'll probably include the USA, Mexico, Gran Colombia and Brazil. But on the other hand it will be strange if Mexico and Spain colonize America in the same time.
If there will be no independent American countries I hope the other 5 countries will be Portugal, the Netherlands, Russia, Sweden and Denmark. If Prussia or Italy or so will be included I hope the game will be easily moddable.

btu Prussia had no troops fightign in America, and apparently this will focus on America...

 

and i don't think ES will have a Prussian civilization but rather name them Germans. I'm almost certain on that.

I object to Russia (that is, if it puts out better suited nations) of the same reason I objected to it in that Cossacks game - they came late, erected some fur trading posts and had little to none inteference or contact with the other European powers on the continent.
