Conquer the earth! On Player at a time!

In a recent interview, Sid Meier didn't come out and say it, but he's definitely looking into turning his hit series Civilization into an MMO. His company is currently exploring it, according to Mr. Meier, and it's an idea he personally finds intriguing.

9. You've confirmed that there will be a Civilization 5 for the PC. Considering how well the development of Civ Revolution for consoles is going, do you think Civ 5 might also be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3? Is there any reason why we can't have epic 12 hour games on a console as well? Also, in what direction do you think Civ games will go in the future - so far it's been about improving graphics and adding more options - where can you go from here?

That's news to me! I'm not sure where you would have heard that, but the truth is that we haven't confirmed that there will be a Civ V. We've just finished Civ Revolution and are making decisions now on what's next for the Firaxis teams. We'll get back to you with more information in the near future.

As for where Civ could go in the I mentioned above, a Civ MMO is definitely an interesting idea and could take the game in exciting new directions. We're still exploring those ideas.
