En uppföljare till det omtyckta strategispelet #Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim var på gång redan 2003 under #Cyberlore Studios vingar. Det projektet las dock tyvärr ner innan det fick ordentligt fart och många trodde då att serien skulle gå i graven för evigt.

Svenska #Paradox Interactive tycks dock ha ansett att spelet förtjänade ett bättre öde för de har köpt licensen och gett den ryska studion #1C Ino-Co uppdraget att arbeta fram en uppföljare. #Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim - som spelet så fantasifullt har döpts till - beräknas vara klart till det första kvartalet 2009 och ska då bjuda på en uppdaterad version av den spelmekanik som föll så många i smaken när originalet släpptes för åtta år sedan.
