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.
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 future...as 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.
