Hey all, I am throwing this question to you, the great lords and ladys of tabletop gaming in hopes of finding an answer. Some months I read an article about some upcoming boardgame set around the World War Two era. It was similar to the Hearts of Iron game series in that it starts shortly before the actual conflict and you can alter certain events i.e stopping Germany from falling to facism so there is some alternate history and poltical themes to it. I've tried googling it but to no avail and apparently I forgot to bookmark it. So hopefully someone here might be able to point me in the right direction.

None of this is real you know, right? Go out in real life and smell the roses. Unless you're allergic.

I think you might be thinking of Cataclysm: A Second World War.

Starts in 1933, you can make different choices than the real world.

There's also Triumph & Tragedy. Starts well before the war, and maybe the war happens, maybe it doesn't, maybe it looks completely different.

And Absolute Victory, which is not quite a sandbox-y in terms of starting situation, but turns itself into a gargantuan branching tree of more specific what-ifs.

But since you said it was recently upcoming, you were probably thinking of Cataclysm.
